I've been rather delinquent lately in posting, but it seems like the days are flying by and those two weddings are getting closer by the minute. One wedding gift is finished but for the framing, and the other is well under way. I can't show either but will give you a peek at the one that is done.
When I need a break from cross stitching, I get out my knitting needles. My SIL Mary gave me a fun scarf pattern by Ann Norling and some pretty yarn for Christmas, and it's been a really enjoyable project. In fact I started another one with yarn from my stash! Isn't that shocking?
Meanwhile, back in the Midwest, David has turned five. (How can that be? It seems like he was just born!) His current interest is all things related to space travel, but he requested a train cake just to keep things interesting. Thanks to Skype, we got to participate in the party and watch him blow out his candles.
Jill is getting quite good at making special request cakes. So far, she's also made a space shuttle cake, David's request for his dad's birthday.
Sophia's had her first haircut and somehow talked the lady into painting her nails! Auntie Catherine will be so proud. She's in Africa at the moment, and Uncle Carl is in China!
Daniel has his first tooth and is sitting himself up. I'd forgotten making the quilt he's sitting on; it's the first one I made for David.
And here in the Pacific Northwest, we've been told it was the warmest January on record. The witch hazel is still out, but on our walk today we saw heather in full bloom as well as a few plum blossoms and a couple of brave crocuses! And here's the photo we received yesterday from Chicago. I sure hope all that snow melts before we get there next month........ Now, where did I put my needle? It's back to work.
