It's been far too long . . .

so long, in fact, that I thought about just forgetting it. Too embarrassing to come back and admit how lazy I am. Yes, life has gotten in the way of blogging -- yet again -- and believe me, I should have been blogging instead of hounding The Hubster to get with the remodeling. On the other hand, I'm sick of remodeling. I think I'm going to take an extended vacation and just plain go away until it's all over. Hmmmm, not such a bad idea.

In the meantime I've done a bit of crocheting. I made a few hats for my sister who is battling breast cancer. This is only one that I sent her. It looks really cute on.


The same sister asked me to make a blanket for her son and his fiance. "Something with a dog." What?! A dog?! Anyway, this is what I came up with. It's much larger than this now it's finished but nothing really changed. I just kept going around and around and around and around until I thought I was going to go nuts. At that point it was "Done already!" I couldn't stand to go on any further. It's about full-size bed size so that's plenty big I think. Especially to throw over you while watching television or something. It's baby blue, navy blue and yellow. Colors don't show up that well in this photo for some reason.


I've also made a couple of shawls but I can't get them to load for some reason. I'll have to retake the photos and see if I can get them to work. Bummer!

Other than that, not much going on here. We have already reached into the 100s. I can't believe it's getting that warm so fast. We are headed to Nevada for a wedding the end of May and then on to Idaho for two high school graduations. I'm so proud of them and excited to be there.

Have a great weekend and don't get sunburned!!!!!
