Fannie Pie: Update and a HINT!

Update and a HINT!

Loved all the guesses about what David Sedaris gave me for my anniversary, however no one guessed correctly. Some of you were in the right ballpark, a pen, a bookmark, gum. It was a simple, humble gift, since he was limited to what he had on hand. I hesitate to go further because I'm sure I'll give it away, but here it goes....

Think: traveling around the country on tour
Think: have bags with him at book signing ( no he didn't give me his clothes)
Think: staying in hotels!
Think: oh come on, what have we all taken from a hotel?

Ok, since I'm sure that did it, the first correct answer will get prizes. Something fibery and something fun...

Now for the update part...

  • Started sleeve two on Rogue, I've just finished the cabled part and on to the long slog of sleeve, should be done to wear to Salado.

  • Finished my first Christmas present! Only 7 million left to knit!

  • worked on tree for festival of trees, tree part done, embellishing almost done. Either I'm a grownup now, who can start projects early enough to get them done for a deadline or this tree I've made is really lame and I'll be starting on one last minute as per usual.

  • got the flu and did my best exorcist impression, projectile vomiting and everything.

  • had the best (worst?) Halloween costume ever. While most girls were tottering around in heels in their sexy pirate or alice in wondertart costumes, DH and I went with a decidedly more down to earth look. We got some of these for me, and these for him. I rolled up all my hair and wore a nasty old robe and yucky slippers and gave myself a big ol' shiner. DH wore a mullet wig and nascar hat and completed the outfit with an AC/DC wifebeater.

That's about all I can think of at the moment....

Guess again ! I'd love to send out some goodies!

I can honestly say I've NEVER taken hotel linens. BUT I read the Holiday Inn book (while waiting for a room) and learned that hundreds upon hundreds of people do take the linens. Darn!!! I do take the soaps and shampoos but those didn't enter my mind!! lol

I love those little soaps!
My flight attendant neice in Denver has her whole medicine cabinet full of all those hotel soaps, shampoos and lotions. It's so cute, and handy when she has visitors.

No, I have never actually taken hotel linens, but I hear a lot of people do! Congrats, Katie.

I knew you had some of the buffalo, just didn't know you had 4 skeins of it! I did write Angie about having a friend who had some gifted to her and hadn't knit it up yet will take an amazing project. That be you!
