WIP Wednesday and award


I finished the mittens I was working…yeah!  I had one done and needed to finish the other.  Sunday the girls were competing at the George Mason Dance competition (the team received a first place in the hip hop division!) so I had plenty of time on my hands.

Today, and this week my wip is my blog, I’m going to add some pages, extra buttons and just clean it up a little.  Check back for my progress.

On another note Larissa from Papa is a preacher awarded me the ‘Versatile Blog’ award!  My first blogging award!  Thanks Larissa!
