On Hiatus

My postings will be few and far between in the next couple of months because I'll be working on filling up lots of these:

That's right, we're packin' up the old homestead and moving.

Mr. S. has been commuting to his job for over a year and a half now, and we have been looking at houses almost that long. We finally found our dream house; it's situated on 4 acres with gorgeous mountain views. It is about an hour and a half away from where we currently live. For now we are going to have to rent out our current house; not an ideal situation, but something we will have to do for now.

Wish us luck as we begin a new chapter in our lives!

Under the Weather

That's been me this week... well, minus the teddy bear! I have been sick with a viral infection since Tuesday... had a fever between 101 and 102 for 3 days straight... it finally broke last night, so I am starting to feel somewhat better today.

Just wanted to let you know I was still around!

Spring is Here

After an unexpectedly cold winter, we lost most of our outside plants. Surprisingly, this tulip survived and it bloomed this morning. Isn't it beautiful??

It's been gorgeous weather here this week, in the low 80's!  Think this weekend Mr. S. and I will go to the plant nursery and see what we can find.
Hope wherever you are you are having nice weather, and that you have a wonderful weekend.

Afghan is Finished

I finally finished the Aligned Shells afghan that I was working on:

I love this pattern, because it is one of those "no-brainers" you can do while watching television. All I did for the border was several rounds of single crochet.

I've gotten quite a few projects done lately, but most of them are sewing projects. My SIL Beth was here for a little over a week and we sure got a lot done. Thanks to her guidance and help, I feel much more confident in my sewing now.

We did work on a few crochet-related items, but I'm saving them for my next giveaway!  Stay tuned, because you never know when I will spring a giveaway on you!
