Baby Bird...

My last bird in the nest is growing up too fast! Went and got the ole drivers permit! She took drivers ed this last summer-but has not been behind the wheel in a long long time. So she passed (bummer) -called her Dad! Thrilled!! We walk to the car and she heads straight for the drivers door. I was NOT ready for this!! OK- we live in a very small community,what could it hurt. See gets behind the wheel-checks everything out. Now I'm feeling a little more relaxed-Until she says "OK, is the little petal the gas?"

I thought I was going to throw up!!

We got home in one piece. OMGosh! Going to take a nap.

Yarn Along

My first try at Ginny's Yarn Along.

Finally have the yarn picked out for this wedding project that is stressin me out!! But everytime I pick it up to work on it the stress seems to melt away? My Mother says it's because "it's going to be perfect"!

I picked up my new Cook's Country to check out the recipe for "Fairy Gingerbread"? Will be trying this soon.

Soon the mail came and in it was a package from our daughters 1st grade class. Letters to Dr. Letters wishing him safety in Iraq and also thanking him for his service. My eyes are still damp... It is so much harder this time. It is for 3 months only, but it's still hard.

ski weekend

Off to Colorado!! Winter Park, 11 inches of new snow! This will be our last trip out before Dr leaves for Iraq. We bought a new w/d for the condo -no more laundry mat! If you want to meet the colorful people of a town-hang at the mat! I really learned a lot. Good & bad. Maybe not all true?

Our daughters wedding is in Winter Park- so meeting with the florist and the sound guy. I better bring my check book!!!

don"t be fooled..

She may look cute, but she & I have a true love-hate relationship!! She acts like a cat. She loves yarn!
Miss Margie the terror of our house.

This is an example of her handy work. On the left WAS my favorite cable needle and on the right WAS a double pointed needle. She pulled my project out of a bag and went at it...

This poor guy is her daily victim. Poor old friend, sorry.
Look what came in the mail today!!! Going to whip up some swatches/gauge squares to mail off to my daughter to see which matches her wedding dress. Then I can get started on her shrug.
