Weekend Projects

Oh what a great feeling is to start the weekend knowing that some projects are done and others are pretty much right on schedule.

During the weekend I got some stuff done and did not procrastinate so now I can say I have one more project under my belt and ready to giveaway in November when I see my cousin at the Madonna Concert trip.

The finalized project is the monkey for my godson Julian.


This Monkey project is probably the hardest I've ever done, but not because it is too big, but because the pattern I used is from an advance level of crochet and the stitched were not explained in detail so in some cases I had to do math myself and in my case, that is just a recipe for disaster!

But I did manage and the end result looks good, now, if only I can get a hidden camera inside the monkey so I can see Julian's face when he gets it, that would make it even more worth it!!!


But other than the Monkey I worked in other projects.

I got my hair done, cut it a bit and got some color to cover those crazy gray hairs I am starting to get thanks to my Dad genes!

Also, I have started a hat for my SIL (sister in law) and also I am working on the paper mache figure head for the Pirates Week Boat float we are putting in the Parade (from work!)... I have some photos of that but until I am 100% sure I will be able to finish it I won't be sharing any...

On Saturday we went to the Cayman Islands Veteran's Association Fundraiser Ball as my husband served on the Navy for 6 years. It was a black tie affair (which we are not very used to) so we had to dress up a bit.

In my husband's case all he had to do was pull out of the closet his Navy uniform from 1985 and wear it, which by the way fit him just fine (insert jealous -sigh- here!)... from 27 years ago!!!!


And that is all I have to report from my two day weekend.

Looks like we might be getting some weather in the next couple of days, there seems to be a disturbance that has the potential to become a Tropical Storm, here's hoping it won't!

Have a great week!!!

First of all you look STUNNING in that photo! You are too pretty for your own good and I love how you are wearing your hair in that photo! Yeah..Mark is like my husband...never gains weight!
The monkey is TOO CUTE! You SHOULD put a camera inside of it, wouldn't that be FUN!?
You did such an amazing job on it!
I can't believe how talented you are.
Hoping the storm stays far away from you!

What a handsome couple on the last picture! - and the monkey ... he´ll be loved to pieces by your godson,I´m sure! :-)) This weekend my daughters and I spent hours making a puzzle (or pussle, don´t know how to spell it) made up of 1000 pieces. It´s the first time we tried it, and had GREAT fun :-)
