I have not touched my stitching in many, many months. I'm sad to say that I am falling victim to old age loss of eyesight. I have bought readers.
Some sewing has been accomplished:
|Tiny Treat Bag|
My adventure in knitting has had highs and lows.
|Hat for baby Matthew - knitted in the round using the Magic Loop method. Yarn is Merino 5 from Crystal Palace Yarns. Colorway is 2302. Pattern was free with yarn purchase.|
|Magic Loop Baby Socks - Pattern purchased on Ravelry. Yarn is Bernat Baby. I tried these in the Merino 5 but I kept ripping and restarting so I thought I should practice before trying again with the good stuff.|
In August, my laptop suddenly would not turn on. This was devastating because I
August also brought us a visit from "Irene".
|We lost one tree, tons of limbs, and power for 3 days! It could have been much worse!|
Oh and another joy I almost forgot to mention.....I have a new job!! I left the Dept. of Corrections to ride down the road of the Dept. of Transportation. I am so happy at my new job! Less gas, less stress, less work, less drama, and more money!! Does it get any better than that?
I will leave you with this family photo taken in July while my DD and her children were here for the entire month! After all, family is the most important part of our lives. Cherish them!
|I love my family!!|
