Shoot-out at the LSS!

Well I survived the crop! It was pouring rain when I left and it was slow going thru the flooded and dark streets. I finally made it there at around 7-ish. I started right in on scrapping and managed to finish 2 pages (one layout). Then I was super tired. I guess the week caught up with me. I started working on the second layout when there was a drive-by shooting (that was pretty much the consensus). The crop area in the store is right next to a huge plate glass window - in the front of the store. The store owner locked the doors and made us all go sit at the back of the store (I am hoping I can convince them to give me a copy of the photo that was taken). We were not allowed to go to the front (hence why I did not have my own camera). We were told to stay in the back until the police said it was okay. So we worked on a Make-n-Take (how is that for a scraping diversion). Finally the police let us go back to our cropping. Our call to the cops ended up being call #10. I ended up staying until midnight and although I only finished the one layout I did get some good ideas for the other pages I had planned. Hopefully I will get those completed sometime this week.

I took pictures of my works-in-progress but on Saturday I ended up knitting quite a bit on my scarf so I need to take new photos. I am already planning what my next project will be - I just need to decide it if it will be for me or B. If I make something for me I need to decide if it will fit or if I will have to make adjustments. I am interested in making a shrug (instead of the poncho). I need to decide if I have to make it wider or not. Why are all patterns make for the smaller set? It should not be too hard as this piece is just one rectangle and the sides are sewn to make arms. I am sure if I just make it longer it should work.
