Look Mom, No Hands.......

Remember saying that when you learned to ride a bike? At least I did!!! Here is a quick snapshot of my FIRST ever knitting projects. Now, granted I am only practicing the knit stitch and I am just making a scarf! However, I have attempted to start knitting on 3 separate occassions and now I am doing it. I finally decided it wouldn't get the best of me. In a couple of weeks, I go back for lessons on the purl stitch and then I will be released to the world of knitting!

On a side note, my husband is unfortunately the better knitter. Our teacher told us men are usually superior knitters. Grrrr! My husband smiled across the table at me when she said that. What a brat!!!

Taking A Break From Insanity

Between working full time, school full time, trips home to visit family and for a funeral, and the husband working 3 jobs, there hasn't been much time to breathe lately. The hubby and I were passing in the night and things were getting sad - from not spending time together.
SO - I got to do something fun and then he got to do something fun. My husband took knitting lessons with me and then I went with him to a Texas Rangers game. They ended up losing, like the usually do when I go to a game. Evidently - I may not be invited back next season - could be a curse!!! I ended up getting a serious sunburn (I couldn't tan this summer - now we are almost into October and I tan - I can't win!!).
We had a great time just being together and spending some time away from the insanity and busy pace of the American life. Here is wishing you a break from the normal craziness in your lives to be with your loved ones!
I do have some projects to post. I hope to get to them soon!!

Because I Matter Challenge

We just had two people submit projects for August, so I declared them the automatic winner. Give me a day or two to get the pics and the voting up for the final vote. What's the prize for the winner? $ to spend at Etsy. Who wouldn't want that??? See you in a day or two to start the voting.

I also was able to do some sewing this weekend while nursing my sinus infection. I will try to post a picture of my first set of quilt blocks I have ever made too. A LOT of cutting, but a lot of fun! See you soon!

Life's "SNOT" fair!

I am behind on posting my voting for Because I Matter due to a sinus infection that has decided to rule my life. Besides my nose dripping and only being able to breathe out of one nostril only, I still plan to get sewing done this weekend. I was really disappointed this weekend as we were headed to a big reunion at the camp my husband I worked and met at. Unfortunately, I kept getting worse and started with a fever. So, we had to turn around and come back home. BOOO! Why do you always seem to get sick around the time you want to do something!!! Oh well, back to stuff I need to get done! I should have the voting up by tomorrow so check back. Now I am off to blow my nose again - ouch - it is raw!!!!
