I knew I hadn't posted in a while but didn't realize it had been a whole month! My travel schedule is killing me!
Over the last month, my oldest daughter accepted a great job (staff accountant for Macy's Corporate Services). She starts part time today and will become full-time upon graduation from UC in mid-June. My other daughter is winding down her senior year in high school including the last cheerleading/basketball banquet, mother daughter fashion show, and two proms.
My son and I have been doing a ton of yard work and I'm trying to win the war against dandelions, however, I'm failing miserably.
I have squeezed in a little sewing and even some knitting. My friends hosted their annual Kentucky Derby party Saturday. The day was beautiful (after a week of rain) and it was a very fun time. I made a dress for the occasion and a matching hat - tradition for the derby party! Here is a photo of all the ladies
And here is one that shows the dress [note to self: posture, posture, posture]. The pattern is Simplicity 2886 and full review is here.
I started a blanket for a friend who is due to give birth in August. The yarn is Cotton Ease and the pattern is a basketweave design. It's easy mindless knitting for the daily bus ride.
I finished the back of a sweatshirt. Pattern is from The Yarn Girls Guide to Beyond the Basic by Julie Carles and Jordana Jacobs and the yarn is a cotton/wool blend called Main Line from Knitpicks.
That's what's been going on in my world lately.
