More Fun...

A $2 bag of beads from Walmart, a leftover button, and some scrap yarn plus a FREE bracelet pattern equals more FUN STUFF!  Just gotta love it.

Pattern:  Wrap Around Crochet Bracelet by Yuli Nilssen.

I can tell there will be other experiments with this one, too.  ;)

Early morning caught me driving into the sunrise to pick up Miss B.

We have had such a fun day so far... Snacks: ALL my Littles love their peanut butter and Ritz and clementines! And, don't forget the "fresh regular milk" as Roo calls it.  ;)

We worked puzzles, did projects, read stories...

Miss B also worked really hard to cook lunch for her baby and the Teddy Bears. Everyone loved it I might add. Then, we played outside for awhile... until those beautiful eyes were starting to droop. My little angel is napping away right now. We have plans to hit the park when she wakes up. So. much. fun.

Starting the weekend with a bang!  Hope you are as well!

Fun Stuff!

Pammy Sue of Scotty's Place introduced me to this FUN PROJECT!  I loved hers and I can see many more in my future.  Ha! Thank you, Pammy Sue!

Rustic I Cord Wrap by Elizabeth Murphy (link to the pattern on my Ravelry page)

This one was specially made for Ryleigh from spring colored sock yarn.  The beads and buttons were from Joanne's Fabric.

And, here is Miss B sporting her puppy hat.  While this is a very serious look, there were MANY wild and laughing ones that just could not be captured... well, they were captured, but they are just a blur!  Note she is playing with the tractors and bulldozers.  ;)

Another happy text from Zack... he is in his element!

And, a Mommy and Me selfie text of my Alex showing off that missing front tooth!

Birthday Fun and Entrechat

We had two birthdays to celebrate this week. Gracie turned 15 and Miss Karsyn turned 7. And, Alex lost his first front tooth. Too quickly... time flies.

Karsyn is so fun. She gets the most excited of any of our grandchildren (maybe anyone I've ever seen) over a gift... and is always so appreciative.

I would highly recommend this little pattern:  Entrechat by Lisa Chemery.  Done here in Noro Taiyo colorway #60.

Not a seam one. And, a really pretty bit of stitching, too...

Karsyn had requested a black, short sweater a few months ago... and I knit it in black per her request... the first time. Then, could not resist a bright spring one when our LYS got in a new Noro colorway.  ;)

The black does show the stitch design a bit better... and it WAS her favorite. But, I SURE enjoyed the bright Noro.  hee hee ;)

THE SUN IS SHINING!! I'm off to enjoy it!!  Hope you are, too!

Random Tidbits... and More Rain

Big Boys having fun... My son, Zachary, in a recent fishing tournament.  This child of mine has LOVED to fish since he was as young as Alex and Roo.

Big (shhhh... Little) Boys having fun... Roo and Alex working a Kiwi Crate Project Kit.  They love working these (available in Target).

MORE RAIN.... So weary of it.  I know.  I know.  All you folks in the PNW think I'm telling Noah about the flood, but we are just not used to it!!  ha!  I am not a wimp in the sweltering summer heat... but, this.... well, okay, I'm wimping!!

One more of the little Puppy Hats for Miss B (who drew a FISH the other day!  Daddy's girl.).

We had two glorious days of sunshine!  Feeling that warmth on my face was good medicine!!

Hoping you are having some good medicine in your life... whatever that may be for you.

The Sunday Shawl Addiction

So a few weeks ago, my friend, Laura stirred up this first little burst of a frenzy with photos of The Sunday Shawl by Little Bee... Then, she started hers and it was so bright and cheerful... and summer-like!  I tried to stay focused on projects I already had in the works...

But, dreams of long, hot summer days... and wearing flowing, gauzy cotton... Well, it just became an obsession; and, I remembered that I had a summer outfit that I did not have a shawl to match... Justification was born.

Soon, I was in the midst of this wonderful pattern.  It is so fun!  And, fast!  Mine is done in Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Company, Inc.

These photos were taken on one of our gray days... they do not do it justice. Can't say enough about how fun this was; I enjoyed it so much that I finished my second one Saturday night! Thank you, Laura!

EARLY this morning!  SUNSHINE on its way!  I'm smiling!!  Lots to do!  Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!
