Getting back into the swing of things...

I've delayed and procrastinated getting my blog up to date because I have this weird thing where I want things to be in order.  Well I'll just have to deal with it that it won't be.

I went through old posts to see what Finished Objects I haven't shown you.  I think there is about 5.  So, I think I'll stick with Friday for Finished Objects.

  • On Friday you will see:
    • Color Affection (yarn purchase can be seen here)
    • Linen Stitch Scarf (WIP pictures can ben seen here and here)
    • Two baby bibs
    • Thom the baby sweater
    • Newborn hat
    • Pine Forest baby blanket
Apparently I can't count because I listed 6 finished items there.

  • On Wednesday, tomorrow,  I'll show you what I'm currently working on:
    • Happy Street
    • Dave's second pair of socks
    • Owen's Little Square blanket
Maybe by now you might have thought to yourself, "wow, that's a lot of baby items!"  They are not for me!  BUT, they are for my SISTER!  My sister will be having baby Owen in October.  I'm getting ready for her shower next month, August 11th!

So, what else have I been up to?  Well I just decided to scroll through my photos. 

I got a Kitchenaid Mixer!!!  I was so excited about this.  I got it for over half off!

It is such a pretty blue!

I had to bake a cake that weekend and use it.  I just so happened to be having family over for Easter.

Also an excuse to use the cake stand!

Toby got to play with his best friend Tootsie!

Dave had another stint in the hospital, but they let Toby come visit!

Toby still loves looking out the windows, and he figured out he can fit behind the couch.

I baked some chocolate chip cookies with the mixer and they turned out amazing!  Too bad I haven't been able to get them like that since!  I'm not sure what I am doing different.

Dave and I went on a small trip to Niagara Falls, Canada in April.

My sister had a Memorial Day picnic and did a special cake to reveal the baby's gender.  Even my sister and brother-in-law didn't know if it was a boy or girl.  The cake's icing on the inside was going to be blue or pink.  Not sure if posting this video is going to work or not.

I "ran" the Color Me Rad (I walked part, I should have been able to run it).  The girls I ran it with were in far better shape than me.

And finally, I went to a wedding last weekend and had a very good time!

I'm third from the left and my sister and her pregnant belly is second from the left.  My friend Katie is the bride and obviously she is on the right.

So, I guess I'm caught up now!  We'll see!  I'll show you my WIPs tomorrow.

Sam :-)
