A Lady of Leisure

As much as one can be with two little ones I suppose. It's been nice having time off, albeit bittersweet. I've been getting tons done. It's not like I worked that much, but somehow it seems that I have more time to knit/corchet/sew/whatever. It's weird.

I think Andrea (though now she's out of town for a week) being off at the same time is part of it. We ran around and hung out at the house nearly everyday last week. It was fun. Now she's out of town and the house is messy so I'm typing instead of doing housework.

I made 5 baby bibs and two baby washcloths, seamed up the EZ Baby Surprise Jacket, am almost finished with a baby Kimono (modified from Mason Dixon Knitting - GREAT BOOK), and I'm not sure what I'll work on next.

Let me tell you the Mason Dixon book is GREAT! It's tons of fun and has lots of cute projects. The bibs I made are crocheted - not from the Mason Dixon book, but they are really cute - I'll have pictures soon.

My birthday is this week - Thursday. Besides my Daddy taking me to Houston's for lunch (a 13 year tradition) I'm not sure what I'll be doing. I may go to the knitting guild meeting - if Casey is off work that day. I haven't decided. I'm having a really difficult time over my birthday without my mom.

Sooner or later I'll get back to my "On The Needles" list, but for now - it's whatever makes me feel good. Right now that's making things for my new nephew that's on the way. I'm going to make something for Anslea (big sister) also, but still not sure what - she's 10 maybe a purse?

Go see Katey's new craft room too. Gorgeous!

I'll keep you posted!
