I know!!!

I can not believe that I have let this blog go for this long! Yes I can. LOL

I am still getting over what ever crud I picked up on the airplane when coming home form Chicago. I have been on 2 rounds of antibiotics and now am in the middle of a 20 day regimine of Prednisone. I am hoping this will be the end of it.

I have been doing some crafting though. My problem is, when a project gets done it seems to disappear from my house before the camera can find it! I finished a small purse for my DIL that she had asked for. It was so cute but maybe I can convince her to bring it back for a photo shoot.

I am working on another purse right now and it is my own design. I am crocheting it and at first I didn't care for the colors in it but it is starting to grow on my now. That one I will take a picture of as it is not promised to anyone yet. LOL

I had to put my socks away for a while as I need to frog quite a bit out of the one with the heel and I just don't have the patience to do that right now.

I have a baby blanket that I want to get started on as soon as the purse is finished. No..............There are no babies in our future right now (that we know of) but you never know when someone will call and ask us to be Godparents again. So I like to keep a baptismal blanket handy at all times. Then when the call comes all I have to do is thread pink or blue ribbon thru it.

My goal by the end of the year is to have all the "started" projects that I have going done before 2008 begins. I don't think it will be a problem unless I forgot where I put all of them.

My Mom and I had a garage sale over Labor day weekend and all the stuff for the sale had been stored in my craft room. Now that it is all out of there I need to get in there and put things where I want them so I can find them! But alas, it will not be this weekend. My DH and I are taking classes every Saturday from 8-4 in Downtown Phoenix. (20-30 minute drive) Then this Sunday we have a football party at a neighbors for the day. So until the end of September when our classes end we will be busy for the whole weekend!

I can hear ya'll now saying............."well, there's October". Yup but we are leaving the 7th for Nashville for a week. I have another conference to attend and DH is once again invited. But after that I hope things settle down until the holidays come upon us. I love Thanksgiving and Christmas but I like to really decorate up for that time of year and I will leave everything else go just to do that. Not to mention we are hoping to have our flooring put in before Christmas this year which means we need to get to painting the walls and we might even decide to pick out the flooring soon. LOL

I still need to download my camera so I can post pictures of our trip to Chicago on here. I promise to work on that this week or next as I want to get those off the camera so I can fill it up with other "stuff".

Have a great day and let me know what you are doing in your crafting.
