What was good about your weekend?

What does one do when they realize that their yarn is taking over?
One makes a yarn bag! I was looking for a quick, instant gratification project this weekend....so, I whipped up another yarn bag. Looks pretty and keeps all the yarn safe and tidy. This is the second, I take that back, third one of these that I have made. I had previously made one for me and one for a friend. This one went together quicker than the last two. I love that. Seems like the first time making something is always a bit of an uphill climb. Consequent attempts are always just a bit easier.Other good things about the weekend included this adorable baby squirrel up in a tree outside the apartment. I took the dog out at about 9 am Saturday and this little guy was climbing up a tree trunk. He proceeded to perch on a branch so I could stand and admire him a bit. He was a cutie! I just love how he's resting his head in this photo. Almost as if he's saying 'Hi down there. I'm gonna just sit on this branch, resting my weary self while managing to look like the cutest thing you've seen all week." Love.What makes a day even greater? Chocolate chip cookies with macadamia nuts of course! I used Alton Brown's recipe from the food network site. Delish! I'm afraid Harry had the toughest weekend of all! Here he is resting in a quilt tent on my bed. Only a face a mother could love! Harry says, "What mom? Don't you sew quilts so I can bury myself in them on your bed while getting everything covered in fur?"
