Shopping Day

Today is our shopping day so we been off to get the groceries & it had some heavy pour downs while out but at least now we are home in the dry, the forecast for our part of the UK is going to be heavy showers today with rain or showers over the week-end.
I am this afternoon just going to rest after doing the shopping I find that it takes it out of me so I will be watching some property programs that I have taped while knitting.
I am about 3/4 of the way up the back of the Aran sweater so not sure how much I will get done today but hope that I will be starting the front sometime over the week-end.
I had a pattern arrive today that I got it for legwarmers, mittens, hat & scarf all done in chunky yarn, I have a pack of Chunky yarn that I had thought of doing a jacket or cardigan with so if I have any left over from that then I can use it up on that pattern or I may do some sets for Christmas presents for my two granddaughters not sure yet.
I am hoping that I can get some Christmas projects done this month & my online quilting group which is at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/QuiltingForAll/ are having Christmas in July & we are going to have a day sewing I think on 26th instead of the 25th because it a Friday so we can get some Christmas projects done.
I don't know about anyone else but the year or years seem to fly by we already in the 7th month & half way through the year it won't be long before Christmas is upon us & we will be rushing around trying to get things done for the festive season & I guess those who start to celebrate Thanksgiving it will be even sooner so why not start now by either doing project craft wise or start to buy the odd gift ready for the season who knows you may see some good bargains if you start now.
Well you all take care thank you for reading this & wishing you a wonderful day
