Has it been 5 years already?


Seems like yesterday that my son brought Gavyn to stay with me during the day and he was 6 weeks old.  Now he is 5 and starts school tomorrow. He and I have done so much together through the past 5 years.  I am sure going to miss him being here during the day. I will of course be picking him up from school on days my dil work  and there is always the weekends.

So I hurt my wrist crocheting?


I had seen a pattern that I thought was cool so having made some fabric yarn and having a size Q crochet hook  I got started.  Had it finished in about an hour  and thought these would make nice Christmas gifts.  A few hours later my wrist started hurting and continued to get worse as  evening  came making sleeping last night not so great.  Needless to say won't be making another one any time soon.

The pink scarf is a work in progress.  I just finished needle felting the leaves now I have to vein them and see what other thing I would like to incorporate into this scarf

Tennessee River and a Maggie Valley Monarch



My mom and I had the pleasure and fun of going to the mountains for a couple of days a couple of weeks ago.  The cool part was we could stop any where we wanted to so we did.  I had mapped out knit shops and Cato's along the way.  Our first night was in Maggie Valley NC. We stayed at the same motel we stayed out last year.  They have a butterfly bush there so when I go up the next morning the butterflies were at it so go me a picture of a beautiful monarch.  When we left Maggie Valley we hit the Blue Ridge Parkway and took that over to 441 and took the back roads in to Gatlinburg Tennessee.  We found us a motel that was on the river so we could go out on our balcony and see the river.  We ate like pigs while we were there and shopped like we had no sense.  We had a blast.  On the way back I took a different route and hit #81 to Bristol Tennessee where I was able to have a cup of coffee at the down town coffee shop.  It was there I discovered that there was a knit shop in Abingdon Va and a Cato's so off we went.
