I still can't stand or walk for long periods of time without getting winded or starting to feel a little uncomfortable. And by long period of time I mean: I went to the grocery store with the hubby and instantly came home to take a nap. But I am starting to do a bit of my normal activities like baking, but only when the hubby is around to handle heavy/awkward baking gear or taking things out of the oven. I don't want to risk it.
I am excited to get back into the sewing room! I had a pair of pajama pants that I started before surgery, that I think I'll finally be able to hem this weekend. I don't think I'll be ready for full fledged sewing projects yet, as all of that bending and maneuvering to cut out and assemble patterns might still be uncomfortable, but I'm feeling more up for it every day.

Due to all of this couch time, I am making awesome progress on my Seeing Stars blanket. I'm almost halfway done, and got caught up to weaving the ends in. Now I have a system where I make a few of the hexagons, weave the ends in, and plot out my next few color rounds.
I was running low on yarn (having finished my first ball of each) so I ordered the final amount to complete the project. My friend recommended FabulousYarn.com and they were rockstars! They got the yarn to me ridiculously fast, and it was beautifully packaged and ready to go. I now have all of the supplies to hopefully finish the blanket off before Christmas.

The only problem with crocheting all day, is that it can really get repetitive. In order to change things up, I've also started working on some knit Christmas gifts. I can't believe it's December already, but I think I can crank out a few items to round out my Christmas shopping.
