projects, happy thanksgiving

hi folks, happy holidays to all.
while traveling yesterday i was able to work on my projects while in the car for 1 1/2 hours each way. on the way back the Michaels store was open and i had wanted to go today to get the pounders from caron for $5. the store was open last night on our way back. we didn't stop though but there were about 15 cars there.
I got an email from joanns and they also had the yarn on sale, well for 4.99 but with free shipping. as i was just down to michaels getting red heart varigated yarn for 4 ponchos i had gotten orders for the color selection wasn't anything. so i went online this morning and ordered the yarn in many colors as i have more ideas for hats to make. can't beat it if you are not in a hurry, they stated 5-10 days.when last in michaels the man asked if i found everything and i told him well no you always store the moveable ladders in front of the yarn that is on sale, along with boxes and carriages, etc so i was not able to even get to that section of yarn. i doubt they will change anything in that regard.
went for mamogram and brought my project with me but they took me right in so i didnt' get to work on that at all but in the car, all of 5 minutes.
i have finished all my christmas projects for others christmas and have sent them out to them all. had orders for 2 more afghans and those got done last week as well.

this shows all 3 ponchos done in different sizes.

and here is just one of the ponchos.

now into baking mode. every day for 4-5 hours i bake cookies so i got a freezer full allready. by next weekend i will be totally done and the cookies will be shipped out to my kids.
