Friday Felines




What better place to nap than a newly finished shawl?

Catching Up!

Well, the rest of July disappeared in a flash!  We  had a wonderful week-long family gathering in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, and then company from Colorado.  And now it's August. Wow!



Twenty-three of us from my sister's and our families were together and had so much fun playing, talking, and catching up. With the exception of an incredible windstorm, the weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed the sunshine and water activities.



Then at the end of July we had visitors from Colorado. Nancy and I taught together in California many years ago, and our two families have stayed in touch every since then.



With lots of car time, I finished a couple of projects, this shawl and this scarf. The scarf is Valerie Johnson's "Going My Way" pattern. Isn't it pretty?



Before all the end-of-July excitement, I also finished my contribution to our quilt group's Ronald McDonald Christmas stocking project.

And now I'm going to go eat breakfast and then go outside to water the flower pots.  Hopefully I can also get caught up on my blog reading!!  Have a great week.
