Learning bad habits!

Yep...I saw Fluffa's knitting waving in the breeze and I've seen Fluffa knitting in the car and I had to do it too!! Ok so it isn't knitting it's crochetting. Do you like the yarn?? I had it special dyed by the lovely Margaret over at Inspirations Yarn. Check out her website the link is in the side bar there...go visit! I love this yarn it is so bright! Hubby and I just got a new car so we thought we'd take a road trip up to Milford, PA. So so pretty.
I've always wanted to go into this shop. It is off the road and there is tons to look at. It is actually not a yarn store it is an embroidery type shop, but she had tons of old books! I score a few good ones there.

We went into Milford and there was a small craft fair (YEA!!) in the middle of town... I bought a beautful wooden vase made out of purple wood and maple. Here are a few of the offerings. There was also a table set up by some teacher's that went to Vietnam and a few other places in that area. They brought back a lot of pictures and woven shawls. I got a shawl...will photograph that outside tomorrow. It is made of Vietnamese silk. so beautiful! I am a sucker for handmade things!

Then we went into Child's state park. I love the waterfalls there. We use to bring the kids there all of the time when they were little. My son Chef would catch newts and salamanders. My daughter loved sitting in the stream. I miss those days when they were little.

Here is Hubby looking over the falls.


Here is a pic of me up stream of the falls. It was so quiet and peaceful there. Nice and cool too under those pine trees.

Hugs to all!
Get outside and enjoy the beauty!

Hot child in the city...running wild and looking pretty?

Boy was it hot outside!

I finished my lovely Habu yarny thing...

It came out pretty good I think..just large enough for my shoulders...it'll look cool in the fall with a brown turtle-necked dress.

Well on to my next project! I really need to get a move on the weaving project. Hubby and I collected some interesting bits of nature to mount one of the pieces on...No hints! You'll have to be patient!

Keep cool!

Hugs!

Can you Habu?

isn't it pretty?? A-129 in Ice Blue...the only thing that I don't like about Habu Yarns is the yarns don't have names...just numbers. It is a nice combo of 90% wool and 10% nylon. Am using honking big needles and will make a cool wrap/scarf.
I love the color...very pretty blue. I am feeling better a little tired. All results are in...everything was benign (sp? can't spell right now) Am taking iron pills and vitamin c to help my body absorb the iron. Have gotten lots of rest. I've been a total slacker at work. I still get in at 6:00 a.m. but I leave between 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m.
I started weight watchers yesterday. I just need to lose a little weight and am looking into the New York Health and Raquet club for exercise. Lola bird will be going for nice walks with me.
What is up with the weather in NY lately? It is cold out. I put a jacket on to go to the Dr. I was cold!

Have a great day!
Enjoy!

The heart is willing, the bod just can't do it



Hi all..
I had some female surgery done that has left me weaker than I expected so I haven't anything new to report on the crafty side. Hubby has been working hard on the garden to cheer me up so here are some garden pictures that are really making me happy!

I will probably work from home today...thank goodness for the internet!
Take care!
Hugs
