So this year I decided to take on a BIG project, and I only have until December 19th.
At work we have a giving tree, that features red hearts with names of people and what they want for Christmas. I picked my heart based on the first letter of the persons name.
The Heart that I got was for Hildelisa, Age74-F. I have decided to modify the pictured afghan for her. I really hope she ends up liking it.
Of course I just learned to knit, so hopefully she will also be forgiving of my efforts.
Today Max and I spent the day running around to different craft stores to find the required colors in required quantities, for this pattern.
I will try to keep you all updated on my efforts, of course worse case senario their is a backup plan... Bed Bath and Beyond, have beautiful lap blankets on sale...but I really do want to make this one from my heart. Merry Christmas Hildelisa, I am going to try to make you something very special.

In other news:
The Christmas tree is all decorated, we picked it up on 11/28 but because of my surgery it had to wait a few extra days to get beautified, then last Thursday when Max was working late, Joe and I decided to make it all Christmasy around the house.. in search of our Christmas Spirit.
Below are pictures of our efforts...Oh and a cute candid of Edison, one of my feline roommates.
So does anyone else have their tree up yet???
