As you can tell it´s been a while since I posted last. I´ve taken a bit of a knitting brake even though I didn´t really have time to if I am to finish the itty bitty toy book in time but it was much needed. Some of the things that have been going on since I was on here last are; I have started back at Grad school and only have a year left. I can´t believe that I only have a year left of grad school. For those of you that don´t know me that well, I am getting my Masters in Science if Counseling Psychology. I have 2 of my favorite professors this semester which is nice but I also have LOADS of work so I will only be posting here maybe every other week if I´m lucky. M started at the mothers day out program at a church half a mile away where O has been going since last fall and he really enjoys his 5 hours there 3 days a week. This way I can run my errands and get my homework done. I´m also trying my darndest to keep my house under control using flylady.net to help me out. I´m not a perfect housekeeper and before I found flylady I was such a perfectionist that I often didn´t do anything because I was so overwhelmed with the task at hand but flylady has ways of getting over that perfectionism and showing me that every little thing that I can get done blesses my family even if it is just picking up the socks off the floor while there are toys everywhere. If you go to the website then please start from the beginning with the babysteps button.
On the knitting front I have finished 2 projects and started 2 more.
I finished Anne´s reading mitts which I am sending to her on Monday.
I´ve also finished O´s Pebbles vest.
I´ve started a blanket for my family.
and the lion and the elephant from the itty bitty book which I will have to finish quickly because my year is almost over and I still have 6 toys to finish. Wish me luck.
I´m also working on my quilt. I´ve almost finished the quilt top which I will show you when I´m done. I´ve sort of gotten obsessed.
Here is a photo that describes what I think about when I´m not studying or cleaning. I´ve got my garden on my mind. I can´t stop thinking about what I am going to grow this year. I´ll be planting my tomato seeds and herb seeds today. Coming soon are blog posts about the various seed companies that I have tried and what I think of them.
