hi....

Blue Sky Alpaca 
Hi guys! First off, thank you SO much for all your kind words on your last post.  I can't tell you how much they all meant.  I will reread them over and over.  And for those of you going through something similar, remember to stay strong and honest.  Big hugs to all of you.

Also, I wanted to let you know, that if you wanted any of my patterns (toast, toasty, those mitts, libby, swayed, chunky knit beanie), that you should print them off today.  I used MobileMe to link those and icloud will be taking over MobileMe, which means that until I figure out how to relink, they will disappear tomorrow!  Sorry for the short notice.  You can always email me and I can send the PDF.

My mother, sister and I attended TNNA again this year.  I'll be back to tell you some cool things I saw.

Have a beautiful weekend!

strong and honest

Me and Libby.  Concert in the park.  June 3, 2012
Some of you have checked in over the past year as you noticed a change in my posting.  Not posting as much.  Not knitting as much.  Not baking as much.  Not taking as many photos.  Not a single thing sewn. The emails meant a lot.
Thank you.

There have been some major shifts in my household as of exactly this time last year.  My husband and I decided to separate and will soon be divorced.  A major life change that was all about learning, adjusting and re-balancing a different life.  A friend reminded me to be "strong and honest" throughout the whole process.  Repeating those words was extremely helpful to me.  I couldn't be more grateful for those two powerful words and the support from my family and friends.  As things change in life one learns to adapt and can only grow from the experience.

I'm gonna try to get back to spending more time doing those creative things I love to do and spending more time on the blog.  I have missed you all a lot.

Onward and upward!

Have a beautiful day!

i make them jump


It's official.
Summer of '12 has begun.
My 3 + 2 friends.
I make them jump.
They hate it and then love it.
We plan on spending the summer doing not much of anything and a little bit of everything.  So looking forward to it.
Happy Summer!
