More starts!

I felt like Fred Flintstone last night.  I was house and dog sitting for my sister this weekend.  I had went to check the mail. She has a closed porch so I closed the door behind me.  I was being cautious because I didn't want the dog run out the front door but I didn't pay attention to the lock.  Imagine my surprise when I found out I was locked out.  I knew I locked the back door because it was dark.  I had no choice but go next door to ask for help with no shoes or jacket. I walked next door in slush and puddles in my socks. The neighbors got their son to come and he went through the kitchen window.  The whole thing last about 45 minutes. The poor dog was scared because I disappeared and hid on under the bed. Poor puppy! Next time I will pay attention to the lock.

Here is my new starts for Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge.

This is Angie's SAL I had started.  I will be working on this more.  

We are getting a blizzard this week, matter fact starting on Monday.  I hope I can get to school on Wednesday okay.  I don't think I will have school on Tuesday.  

Thank you for stopping by.  I will be back next week.

Hugs, Vicky

I love how you are being sensible with all your starts, they are of a doable size, I'd be tempted to start all the big ones, and then get bogged down with the WIPS.

I can relate to the Flintstones story, our trusted neighbours now have a spare key.
