I Like Thursdays #35

It was a fun, busy, exhausting weekend for me.

We started Friday with a band concert at school.
Advanced band from the Middle School plays a little Christmas concert at the Primary School
This year 4 beginner band members were invited.
These girls work so hard,
even practice over the telephone. 😃
It was fun to watch all the younger kiddos watch the bigger kiddos.
It was really fun when the 5th grade girls played and were recognized by their former school mates.
I love watching the audience.

Then I went over to hang out with these 4. 
Mom and Dad had a full weekend selling at a craft festival.
Friday evening was spent devouring homemade pizza.
Then it was time to settle in and laugh ourselves through Elf.

Saturday was no ordinary waffle breakfast.
How fun are Darth Vader waffles!?!?!

I worked on finishing this cute messy bun hat for Clella. 
She loves it so much!

She started this scarf maybe a year or so ago on the Kniffty Knitter Loom.
She told me she thought it was long enough and would I help her finish it. 
You bet. So I help her bind it off and
taught her to make fringe.

Granddog Sadie is hilarious.
I also brought a bigger loom with me and some bulky yarn for her to start a cowl.
She's got quite a bit done already.
I might get that yarn stash used up with her help.

While there, I went stash diving in Crystal's fabric for some orange for my mystery quilt.
My girl needs to seriously up her orange game. 😘
But I'm happy with what I found and they mixed in nicely with my fabrics.

This birthday orchid sits on her counter.
It must be the perfect spot for it because it is thriving!

Finally on Tuesday, I finished up my clue #3 for the mystery.

I have a good start on my orange string blocks for clue 4.
I'll finish the last few this morning 
and then I have to finish getting ready for Christmas.

I hope your week is filled with all things you like.
Merry Christmas

Hi Judy! What a nice newsy post. You had a lot of fun on your plate for the week. Spending time with the kiddos is just the best. I love your granddaughter model - she looks so cute in the hat and her scarf. AND how nice is that, that you can raid your daughter's fabric stash. Lucky! Merry Christmas to you and your family. Happy Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

Oh Judy, so many lovely things in this post. Time spent with the young ones keep us young, I think. Clella looks so sweet in her hat. The pretty fabrics to work with are a bonus. Enjoy the countdown!
