Umm....it's been awhile. I have regressed I'm afraid to my childhood of long lazy summer days. There are so many things I want to share and I have been reading all of your blogs out there but somehow I haven't managed to wrestle up enough energy to comment let alone create a new post. My only excuse is this is the first summer since 2003 that I haven't been pregnant, nursing, or had someone too small to really enjoy all that summer has to offer. I have been making the most of it and making up for lost time this summer.
Last summer I got very annoyed with people who seemed to disappear with only a few posts during the summer months. I thought, how hard is it really to just keep up with your blog? Well my friends I am finding it very hard :). The temp here has finally hit the triple digits and so that means our afternoons are finding us hunkered down inside working on projects, watching movies, and getting out of the heat. My shawl? Well it hasn't even been started. I finally got a ball winder and have the yarn all wound, baby steps people, baby steps.
There has been some knitting and a little sewing. I made up this purse in minutes the other morning.
My daughter asked if we could do something together, so I let her cut the fabric and sit in my lap and help me feed the fabric through the machine. The "handles" we found in a toy bin in the bottom of her closet. Just some plastic heart bracelets she had.
I apologize for the brief post and the fact that I haven't been checking in but my lazy days are over and I miss catching up with all of you. I have some finished knitting to share and other stories but right now I am late getting the kids packed up to go camping for the weekend. I will check back with you Monday morning and see how things are with you. Thanks for hanging in there and I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and are enjoying your summer as well!!
