Busy, Busy, Busy

Hello All it's been a really busy few weeks getting adjusted to be back in school after soooooo many years away. It's a lot to readjust to and discipline yourself for. The biggest thing for me is all the reading that has to be done in a day and a half. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining I love this as it is, the beginning of my future. To move on to crafting, I haven't done any knitting this week but I did make a curtain for my girls' room. I'm 75% done on the Blue Gable for my youngest DD and I have to get that done before the end of this month. I'll be back next week with an update on the Gable. Unitl then, stay crafty. :0)

Happy July Everyone

Well, it's July already and I'm a student again after many years away from academia. I'm carrying a full load and it's something to get use to. Time management is something I have to really get together to be successful. I have made a few things since my last post. I made a skirt for my youngest DD, a school bag for me, and I'm still working on my DD Blue Gable. Here's a pic of the Gable so far and my bag. I still want to refashion a dress into something summery and there are a few people at school who want to have a bag made so I have plenty to do. I finally have a BUTTON so take it.

What kind of yarn are you?

You are Mohair.You are a warm and fuzzy type who works well with others, doing your share without being too weighty. You can be stubborn and absolutely refuse to change your position once it is set, but that's okay since you are good at covering up your mistakes.
