What Do You Do When You Should Be Packing?

How about do a blog post?
  Well, that's what I am doing instead of packing!
 I'm always a little nervous before I leave home. 
Do any of you feel like that?

I told you I would show you some photos of the chenille blanket that I finished.
 I really love how this one turned out
(I think I say that about every one though)

Isn't the chenille so pretty? It reminds me of fire.

 If you would like to make one too please find the tutorial over here
So if you want to make one now you can too!! 
If you do please consider putting it in my Flickr group here.
 OK, I'm off to finish the packing and general getting ready to leave for NC in the morning!
