I know I've been blog slacking... but look at everything else I've been doing!!!

First, progress on the best friend blanket. I'm loving it!

Then, remember the Mr. and Mrs. T pillow? Finally found a pillow for it. Now that I've decided that it is cute, I'll be making a twin for it :)

Finally, look at my pretty office!!! I LOVE IT!

The perfect pink walls, IKEA desk and curtains... so pretty and feminine! It's still not done. I have a few white shelves to put up, a white bulletin board and a few other things, but I couldn't wait to share!

Oh, and speaking of IKEA... look at this monster!

I built it all by myself until the last two screws... I was cussing, bleeding and sore by the time hubby came home and helped me finish :) Did I mention that it's 7 feet by 7 feet? It's HUGE! But it's the perfect size for all kinds of stuff. The squares are approximately 13" square but 15" deep. So scrapbook stuff fits perfect. I like how the yarn looks... And now I know exactly what I have... Not bad, huh?

Your best friend blanket sqaures are gorgeous! So intricate.

Your office is so pretty. I have a smaller version of that bookcase from Ikea and it was a pain in the butt to put together. My hubby was the one cursing and we were doing it together. But I really love that bookcase.

What a beautiful office! I love the pink (pink is my favorite color)! Now you'll have to crochet a pink & white afghan to match the room!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your office and your storage unit. I've been living in my house for well over a year, and my office is a crazy mess. You would be horrified to see it! Your pictures are inspiration though.

I always enjoy your blog; makes me feel like a real slackard and the ultimate slob; I would never take a pic of my house. Even when its decorated at Christmas it is a mess. I think I can truthfully say it is shabby in the true sense of the word.

Both the blanket and your office are quite pretty. I'll enjoy vicariously as I go about my work surrounded by stacks of stuff. Maybe one day...
Best wishes,
