Still here

I am still here but just haven't gotten around to posting on my blog.  Always seems there is something going on when I think about it.

Anyway, I am knitting, crocheting and beading away the summer.  I have finished one prayer shawl since last I wrote.  I didn't get pictures of it as I know our Cancer Ministry at church was in dire need of it and finished it while in my hour of prayer so just left it in the office for them.  I now have a pair of socks on the needles and I promise these are going to be for me because I picked out the yarn with me in mind.  I also have the alpaca prayer shawl on the crochet hook and have not touched it in a long time.  It is just too darn hot to work on right now.  I will have the LaLa's simple shawl on the needles and have done a few rows on that this week.  Then I also have a survivor shawl on the crochet hook and love doing it as it goes pretty fast.

In the world of beading I have finished 5 necklaces, 2 bracelets and 5 earrings that will be sold at a craft sale where my mom lives.  That will take place in November and I would like to get several more sets done for it.  Mom is also working on sets to sell too.

I have also completed 3 snoods to wear to Mass instead of the chapel veils.  The veils are so warm and the snood is off the neck so they are a bit cooler.  I am also going to try and make a mimkhatah which is Hebrew for kercheif.  It is not like your normal kercheif but is really nice looking and ties under the back of your head and does not require bobby pins or clips to keep it on.  It will also be cool as it will be made out of light weight lace and only to to the bottom of my hair line.  So the neck will be exposed. YEA!

Our daughter is moving out this week.  She found a really adorable one bedroom apartment int he historical section of our town.  It was built in the 60's and you can tell that as soon as you walk in and see the turquoise range top and oven.  It has just been a year since she moved back home and I think she has done really well getting her life back together and it is time for her to venture out on her own.  She has never lived by herself so this will be really good for her.  She is only about 5 minutes from our house so that is nice too.

Other than that is has just been crazy busy with our daily lives.  Seems like we don't get much down time anymore and if I do manage to find some I am at my crafts which make me so happy!

Have a great week and I will get some pictures of the jewelry and post them.  I might even take some pictures of works in progress too.
