Note to self: blogging is good!

I have actually had a little time to myself this week. I ended up working from home for 2 days (boss sick/me sick too). It is amazing what I can accomplish if I have multiple days when I am home when the sun is out.

Today was a wonderful mother's day. I took Mom to the Eugene Concert Choir Madrigal Dinner last night, and it was lots of fun (although really, I didn't pay for tickets, but its the thought, right?). Which was fabulous! The food was good, the singing better, and the fight seen, marvelous!

We went to Hendrick's Park today, and it was positively mobbed. It took us several minutes to even park. But it was worth it, the flowers are in bloom, and the sun was out. Its nice to remember that there is sun out there.

So, not many photos to post. I realized I need to take some photos of non-secret stuff. I have several shawls that I have finished lately, but I haven't got pictures of yet. We all know how that happens.

Maybe I'll just post a photo of a pretty dress!

I can haz shiny!

Swap of wonderfullness

It has been awhile, but for the last 6 months, I have been working on secret projects. Suuuuper Sekrit things. So secret, I can't tell you about them till the end of the month (and then you wont stop hearing about them, I promise).

But, I have something non secret I can blog about. I participated in a wonderful swap on Ravelry with some friends. Our theme was "Toys and Trinkets," and it was lots of fun. If you are unfamiliar with crafting swaps, here is how they work.

You sign up on a list and are given a swap partner, this is sometimes public, sometimes secret. Sometimes the person you send to sends back, in this case you send to someone, they send to someone else, etc.

I have participated in this in the past, and this time was wonderful fun. So, without further ado, I give you my lovelies sent by AnnMarie:

I am the proud new owner of the Ornette Sock Pattern by Cookie A and Malabrigo Sock in Ravelry Red (best red evar).
 A zippered notions bag, cloth covered measuring tape, and....
 ...and cute, bitty, wee kitties! I have already used them, and they are amazing!
