Latest WIPs

The place Dad and I picked out on the Outer Banks at Rodanthe. We'll be there 9/30-10/7

My newest granny square for exchange. My last one like this was done in blue and went to a lady in Edmonton, Ontario. The little caps are for chemo kids at Johns Hopkins. I still have to put some gold edging on the tiara on the lavender one. You can't see the camoflauge (sp?) one very well. It's cute and looks like a little army cap with a bill. The peach thing is a hooded sweater (inspired by Aunt Susan) that's knit from the top down. I'm almost to the point of separating off stitches for sleeves that will be finished later. You've just got to love yarn ;)

I'm excited that Matt and family and Ben and Susan are coming up this weekend. I haven't seen the 4 grands in quite a while.

Busy on the knitting/crocheting front. Finished 3 Seraphina shawls this week (little ones for the grands), 3 exchange granny squares and one kitchen angel.

Lynn and I are going to pick our vacation house on the Outer Banks tonight.

Our RS president was just called to be Stake RS president so we should all be released next week. Then what? hard to say. A break would be great.

Last Wednesday was my last day at IMA. I still go back each week for my allergy shots; kind of weird seeing them all again when I am free and they are still rats in the ratrace.

It's storming here so I'd better get off the computer. :0

At the Luau Saturday at Olson's - too kewl !!

Saturday night the ward had a luau at Olson's Ranch and roasted a pig in the ground. The Washington DC chapter of BYU Hawaii alumni came and did native Hawaian, Fijian, Samoan and Tongan dancing complete with native dress. It was truly cool.

Almost a Woman Of Leisure

After 16 years on the work force, I'm leaving to chase my own dreams.
I plan to spend time crafting, reading, exploring my surroundings and doing genealogy and temple work.
