It doesn't quite matter what one starts, does it?  Isn't it all about what one finishes?

I don't really know the answer to that, but gosh, it sure seemed like a good lead-in to this post, which is all about what I finished this weekend.

Ready?  Here you go...

1.  Started & finished.  A reversible apron for Jesika (DIL)...she bought the fabric in January and has been waiting patiently.
2.  Started & finished.  Apron for Jasmine (granddaughter)...just because.

3.  Started & finished.  A kleenex cozy for a friend who loves dots.  I also made one for Sylvie in placemat quilt swap partner.  (yeah, I travel-size kleenex package in it.  Don't worry, there will be when I send them out.)

4.  Finished both placemats for my placemat quilt swap...I'll show them once I know they've arrived in France.  

5.  Finished reading the novel Blood Vines by Erica Spindler. 

6.  Started & finished.  Hemmed a pair of scrub pants for a coworker, but I didn't take a photo.  Cuz, you know...scrub pants.  If you've seen one pair, you've seen them all!  {grin}

7.  Started & finished.  Bathed Tag E. Butt. 
I think that's everything!  Well, besides the normal, everyday sort of things like fixing meals and taking showers and talking on the phone and doing dishes/laundry, etc., know.

And, for those of you who are wondering if the synvisc injection had any effect...I think that it did!  My knee doesn't hurt nearly as much as it has been.  I was told to not expect much until after the second injection, but it really does feel better.  So.  We shall see, hey?

I feel like I did nothing!!
But I had 3 kids here all weekend and also got my closet framed out and did some reading and did dishes and laundry and lots of rocking time with kids. Can't beat that!!!
Love, Joyce

I'm so happy you are having some relief for your knee! Hope it keeps up and feels 100%

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and that pic of Tag E. Butt is SO ADORABLE - You know I want that boy! I think he thinks he's a cat by the way he sleeps all curled up like that! I think I would have just curled up around him!

Hey, just bathing my dogs makes me exhausted and look at all you did!!! Tag looks beautiful, his coat is so shiny.
I am glad that your knee is better...with the second injection hopefully it will be good as new.
