Yarn, Yarn everywhere and not a project started!


I've tons of yarn people...tons of ideas, but no idea where to begin! I am suffering from Fiber Block...ewww that sounds really horrible!! hahaha! Every once in a while I can't decide what to start. I am looking around blog world for inspiration. So many talented bloggers out there. How do you all do it? Work, family and still you create.

I think it is work related stress...that's all I am saying about that.

I have to get myself on track there are babies coming and birthdays...xmas!! I've got to get a move on.

well at least the garden is enjoying my extra weeding and tending. Maybe this blockage is a good thing.

Well, since there is no crafty stuff to show you, I will post a picture of my Mom. It was her birthday this past weekend.

Happy Birthday to my Mom!!! Love you!


Take care!

Thoughts of family


Here is a picture of Princess S at her 1st Birthday. The lovely auntie holding her is my sister the Artist. The Artist and I have a lot in common. We both love museums, traveling, and exploring the city. We are peas in the pod. My other sisters are terrific as is my brother, Dad to Princess S. We are a pretty tight group. My mom taught me how to crochet when I was a tiny thing...I think she taught me so I would stay out of her hair for a while...poor mom! Mom was a master at creating Halloween costumes out of ordinary things. No plastic masks for us. I remember being a gypsy, a country singer, a 50s style girl and my favorite a flamenco dancer. In the summer we spent a lot of time in the library and the zoo. We spent so much time at the Bklyn. Botanical Gardens we knew the security guards by name. The Brooklyn Museum was our home away from home. So many great memories. With that Happy Mother's day to all of you out there. Spend time with your children and give them happy memories. Teach them to dream and to hope. Teach them to love and laugh. Be generous with hugs and kisses. Make cookies and castles in the sand. They'll remember that forever.

Hugs to all,

Marie

Happy Bday Baby

Hello!

My DH's bday was Sunday. So we had a nice bbq with his brother and their family. It was really nice weather and it was lots of fun to see everyone. Burgers and hotdogs were delish!
Here is Hubby with his great niece Princess D...awww. He was very surprised, but he did say he thought something was up when I didn't ask for a ride to the LYS! hahahaha
Here we have the back 40..tomatoes, basil and lettuce in the rectangular planter and in big round clay planter we have lettuce. The barrel in the background holds my herbs. We will see how long before we can harvest (HEEHEE.) Yep I am very envious of knitters who live on farms!!

Now a pretty picture..Yarn!! A bargain at a buck a skein. Thank you Michaels. For now am still working on baby blankets, but am almost done. Next, a hawaiian style dress for a sweet 16 my daughter is going to. fun, fun, fun. Have a fantastic night!

Oh Yes Mr. Postman!!


Finally Friday...It is really Friday!

This was the longest day in my life. Oh hecky yes I really didn't think I'd get through the week. Enough moaning! Mr. Postman, my favorite man in the world, brought some beautiful yarn to the cottage on S.I. I think I will set myself up with some delish Margaritas and start working on a new shawl. Is it for me or maybe a Christmas present...well time will tell! Here is the very delicate icy yarn draped over my dining room chair waiting to be rolled up. The yarn is so soft I can not wait to start in...oh boy!
Good thing the Lola Monster isn't around...she loves to snatch yarn and run around like a maniac. There she is looking to see what to grab..hmm cake? Bag of yarn or finished shawl..

Enjoy the weekend!
