We are back from our vacation, and we had a good time :)
It was nice to see the family, and it was really really good for my
hubbie to have the time off work, he really needed it!
here is a picture of me with my mother in law's dog, her name is
Haylie, lol, she is the funniest little thing, but very sweet...
I gave all my bookmarks and snowflakes away, so I made a new
bookmark for myself, this one I am keeping lol, and now I have to make a
whole new stash, they took them all, haha, but that is a good thing :)
Here is the one I made to keep for me... the ribbon tail is decently long :)
and I had to make one more snow flake because every single one I made is gone, and this
one is infact being mailed out to one last cousin who didn't get one, lol :D
I made my scarf and hat for winter, and am working the shawl to match,
but put the shawl aside for a while to work on some other things for now,
My mother in law loves it so much she wanted her own, so we went
to Hobby Lobby and she picked out her own colors and I am finishing
up hers now, I have the hat done and am finishing the scarf now, she
wanted a specific length. I made a scarf a few years ago for her, and she
has bragged to everyone about it and loves the heck out of it, wraps it around
her head etc, so this year she asked for a hat and scarf, so I am happy to make for her :)
the scarves are double knit, they are stretchy but they spring back
on themselves, they look the same on both sides, and actually are twice as thick as
a regular thick scarf, yet still drape and move like a singular knit fabric.
This is my favorite scarf to knit, for warmth anyhow, I have some fancy lace scarves I
like to make, and am going to do one for grandmom when I am done here,
she wants a pretty one but not a real heavy or warm one for down in Florida.
Health has been poor, I was sick the entire ride home, we took an extra day coming home and stayed in a hotel instead of hurrying home, hubby didn't want to push me with the way I was feeling, I was back in the doctors soon as we got home though. I know you don't want to hear the details of that,
so I won't bother you with it, it is just the same ole same ole :) I am
feeling better than the trip home, and hubbie has been super :)
It is always good to be home, no matter how good the trip is, you always feel
good to be back in your own home :)
I have really missed you all, and hope to have more things to show you soon :X I will do my best to catch up on my blog reading, hugs friends and keep tatting :X:X
