Ladies, you are doing GREAT! I will try to participate in the in house .. :D
On the son33 front, he's NOT coming back, he's apologized, and we are actually communicating. I found him a small 2 bedroom house to rent, and he & his pal who can be his roommate liked the looks of it online, and pal went last night to look at it., as he's geographically closer to it ATM. I've not heard back yet...
Son33 has some logical plans for immediate/long term work and getting a cyber-security certification to pay his bills and start paying me/us back. I HOPE I can trust him on this...

I took SIL to the hospital for tests. She probably has GERD. She's taken herself off all meds....I'm waiting for the manic episodes to start again. I'm Going to schedule the CT scan I THOUGHT they were doing at the same time.. She wants to wait until Spring to redo the colonoscopy that she didn't do the prep correctly for.. I told her all bets are off IF the CT scan shows something in the gut... :x

OH MERCY. Son33 IS moving back home. He's planning to stay in the (unheated) garage with the x's 2 cats and his dog. No, not attached, and bathroom is in the house...Wonder how long THAT will last...
My goal for the in-house is more rows of blocks for the quilt.

Can we do another in-house after this! I am getting so much done.

Way to go Nannika - I finished most of the back yesterday - today it will be finished and a sleeve will be started. Fingers crossed I have enough to finish this sweater. I ordered more yarn 3 weeks ago but it has not arrived. I will go as far as I can then start the quilt.

MCL I think there is something about that age group. Mine moved back in in the spring - I now have 2 housefuls of furniture in the house. Yesterday I tripped in the basement and smashed my knee so it was a good thing we had an in-house because I sat with ice on it all day. My basement looks like one of those hoarders like you see on those tv shows - pathways through it! Oh and also she moved in with her huge dog that DH is allergic to! Guess that is life - I just close my eyes to it and figure at least she had somewhere to go to - but your story is much different. Take your 'me' time and work on your quilt!

Saturday -
1. finish sweater back
2. cast on sleeves / 20 rows

Sunday -
1. finish 1 sleeve and as much of sleeve #2 as possible

Yes, lets do one next weekend,too. Next weekend is a holiday weekend here, and I have a bad chest cold and a war between son33 and hubby. Young Mr. "entitled" millennial didn't like Dad's plan to get him back here; HE wanted me to pay for his storage, and just bring part of it back. Hubby told me NOT to give son33 any $-(no duh!) as IKD WHAT he's been DOING WITH what we HAVE given him.
NOW, hubby doesn't want to pay the rental truck, and I can't blame him any...kid is being RUDE, controlling and disrespectful...

I'm going to do a few more things around here, and see if I can make any progress on the quilt...

Hi MCL I am game for another in- house next weekend. Maybe Nannika will join us. I accomplish so much more when we do these.

Just about finished the sweater back - but with all the interruptions. Phoned to see where the extra yarn I needed was - they hadn't sent it yet so that makes a 3 week delay at least to finish. But all is good! I will move on to the quilt I need to get done.

Sorry to hear about DS giving you a head ache. Stick to your guns.

This week
1. Finish sweater back
2. Cast on sleeve - go as far as I can
3. Block #1 - #6

In- House
Finish quilt blocks
Put together
Quilt
Bind

Well, we did the go around with son33 AGAIN. He realizes he can't come here and work; hubby will interrupt him too much. Hubby WON'T let him live in garage in winter with a space heater & pets..
I THINK he's staying there ATM...He may fly back to visit at Christmas, but we may not even see him then. Hubby paid for his plates so he can drive for Lyft. He's supposedly moving next week-no money, no place to go.Well, I guess he'll figure it out. I'm praying hard! I've made a therapist appointment for myself; the stress is getting to me!
The whole thing is NONSENSE!

Hi, Nannika and Loki!
I need to be on a roll on this quilt! I have to work today first, then hope to get some work done!
Yesterday, I cleaned the house, and there are PLENTY of Thanksgiving leftovers. Hubby is FINALLY back on his medicines, HURRAY, so there is a bit more peace around here. :D
Unfortunately, SIL isn't back on her meds, but she has a doctor's appointment in 10 days for follow up on (mostly) normal tests, so fingers crossed and praying HARD!

Projects:
"N"'s quilt-Sew together quilt top Rows: 23,22,21,20,19,18,17,16,15,14,13,12,11,10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1
Work on Summer weight crochet sweater for ME-
"Easy?" knit sweater-restarted AGAIN!-Work on this! It's knit from top down=on row 8 or 9 I think... increases are a bit confusing....
Make a simple curtain for powder room from shower curtain-washed the old one and put it up, and painted the covers of the duct covers
===================================
Done in 2017:
Christmas tree mat
Learn how to use my new serger and fix those projects for hubby
Got SIL in to doctor/out of hospital/back with meds
Tax figures accumulated for accountant
Stenciled the bathroom cabinet
Took hubby on round of appointments to figure out if he needed immediate surgery...SIGH
Took off the wallpaper on half walls in tiny powder room so DNiece can paint in there sometime ..SHE DID. Her DBF got new counters(laminate) in bathroom & powder room
Went to the wedding of the daughter of a college friend out of state(actually in different time zone, but only 5 hours away) :?
End of year recitals Accomplished(one of which I type programs and do a LOT of work!)
LOTS of plants planted as hubby spent $1,000 for HUGE trees to block off view as he's now paranoid- gravel got dumped on herb bed so I redid that, and every year I add perennials
Even more plants planted for hubby
Made oriental-type garden at the end of the garden as gravel & plants needed a theme
Paint an old glider for the patio-guess I'm the 3rd neighbor that has worked on this... :lol:
Replanted the foundation plantings/planted 2 fruit trees
Managed dto get house refinanced
Got SIL in for needed medical tests
