I Made It!

Yep, I wrote another blog post in less than one month J I thought I would be posting more frequently but I haven’t.  I have been so busy and certainly NOT in a routine yet.  I’m not complaining because I am getting a lot done…just can’t quite tell you what it is though.

My husband and I enjoyed our cruise.  It was rest and relaxation that we both desperately needed.

He is so adorable…if I say so myself J

I mentioned in my last post that I was taking a couple of classes at my LQS. Well, it turned out to be only one class but it was well worth it.  It featured the ever so popular Fold n’ Stitch Wreath / Candle Mat pattern by Poor House Quilt Designs.

I made a candle mat in my daughter’s college colors…University of Central Florida.  I may add a bow so she can use it as a wreath as well.

Another project I shared about here is now a finish.  Summer cowl…

With everything else going on, I put this aside when I only had an inch left to knit.  A new knitting / hand-crafting group started gathering at a local church on Monday evenings.  My long-time friend and co-worker invited me to attend so I finished the knitting portion of the cowl last Monday.  I blocked it on Tuesday.

If you are a regular follower then you know that my son is in the Navy and stationed in Japan.  Currently, he is in Jacksonville, FL for three weeks participating in a special training course.  We spent this weekend visiting with him and it was not only a special time but SUPER special because it happened to also be my husband’s birthday.

I enjoyed one last big bear hug from my son until December.

That is my last month in a nutshell.  I’m off now to enjoy a cup of coffee and to catch up on reading my favorite blogs.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Big hugs to you!
