El Ranchito was berry busy

So I finished yet another baby blanket.

My son chef and his lovely girlfriend came down from Boston for a couple of days...

Here they are again working on a super secret project!
You all remember this!!! It is Kushu Kushu from Habu!

Here she is on my dining room table basking in the sun! I am having trouble adjusting to the thin thin thread!

An Artistic shot...I can't wait to see it when it is larger. I think it is going to take me a while! Well worth it... so so cool!

Dinner under the stars

As a thank you my company treated a few departments to a dinner cruise around NY harbor. What a great treat! The weather held out, food was great, company was fun. It's not often hubby and I get dressed up. We normally wander around the city and go to one of our fave places in the village to eat. In the winter we like to see shows so we'll usually stop at Roxie's for their yummy pastrami.
We are pretty lucky to live in NY and take full advantage of it. Would I ever move away..hmmmm well as my nephew would say "OH HECKY NO!!"

I hope you all enjoy the pictures!

Hi All!

It has been another crazy busy week here at El Ranchito. I was given an order for a special crib blanket. The following is what I came up with. I think it looks real pretty. I've selected a super soft, easy care yarn from the U.K. in a cream color. I am going to put a blue ribbon around the eyelet round there. It is taking me forever to get this one done. I think it is worth the time.

Here is a close up of the corner

Of course before any invoicing is done Lola does her quality control check!

Once this project is complete it is time for me to finish my weaving project. I've get to free the Loom!!
I hope you all have a great week!
