Wooly Goodness

It's that time of year again for me to start on my Fall and Winter sewing projects.... which means I have to put my knitting down for a while. :o( Before I do that, I'd like to show you some of the wonderful yarn I picked up recently.

On the left, the white is an organic cotton by Blue Sky Alpaca's. Can we say yum, yum! I'm not a fan of knitting with cotton, but this is so soft!

The oatmeal and navy heather are both Cascade wool. I love working with wool! I intend to knit myself a pair of wooly socks with this navy yarn.

I am finally working on my Raggedy Cabin Blog, so if you like primitive things, please check it out. You never now what I might write about. *Ü*

It's been way too long

I'm so very sorry... I've been a bad blogger again! It's been so long since my last post.

The kids and I have spent the summer at the library, the park, watching movies, eating watermelon, swimming, spending all day in our jammies, having tea parties, baking cookies, picking flowers... planting flowers, catching fireflies, having lunch outside, baking bread and knitting. We even had a 3 day holiday visiting friends in Ohio!

Here is a loaf of whole wheat bread we made. It didn't last long!

Here's our cat, Patches, lounging on the back patio. Oh the life of a cat.

We have almost 5 weeks of summer left, I wonder how much more we can do. The time is flying by and next fall, my baby will be going to Kindergarten. (sniff, sniff)

Till next time,

xoxo, Marissa
