Anyway.......................let's get started!
It has been a whirlwind of a week. I posted on Wednesday hoping to make this post a bit smaller than. Nope..............Too much going on to not try and fit a lot of it in on this post. Since the majority of you are here to read about my handy work, I will post about that first.
The only thing I have to show is this:
My Hermione Socks are coming along nicely. I was surprised how much knitting I was able to do this week. I managed to get both heels done using the Fish Lips Kiss heel and have knitted several rows of the foot. These are such a great knit and such an easy pattern to remember.
I still have not taken a photo of my stash enhancement from almost a month ago. I know....I am a bad bad bad knitter. LOL Actually, I was going to take a photo of them this week but there were 2 teen age boys sleeping in that room and their blow up bed took up the entire floor space in there. Kind of hard to get to my stash with a bed in the way.
Speaking of which..............I do have some photos from the past week.
We went out to where my mom lives and the kids were thrilled that there was a puzzle to be worked. My mom had no idea the Great Grands were coming into town and she was beyond happy.
Here are 4 of her Great Grands. These were the only ones that came. There are 3 more but they are all grown up and have jobs and were not able to make it down.
These two beautiful ladies are the newest members of my family. This is my Daughter in Law and my newest Grand Daughter. Love them to pieces. In fact, I will be going down to where my DIL is stationed in January to stay with the Grand while she goes TDY for 2 weeks. The Grand has asked me to bring a crochet hook and yarn and teach her how to crochet. She is a lefty like me, so this will be the first time I have taught some one left handed. WOOHOO
While the family was here we went and had family photos taken. ALL OF US!!!! That is 12 people. The lady was so great with us and let us have whatever sittings we asked for. I can hardly wait to get the CD back so I can upload them to my computer and give you a view of 90% of my family.
After photos, we went to eat at a nice Italian restaurant. Bucca di Peppo!!!! YUMMY!
Here are a few photos from that adventure:
The son who just had surgery and his lovely bride
My daughter and her husband. They just celebrated 1 year of marriage.
My local Daughter in Law (Josie's mom)
And her husband (my son). (That's me next to him)
Some yummy food
Even more yummy food
My 16 year old grandson is the one taking 99% of the photos I am sharing with you.
He even took a selfie with my new camera. He is amazing.
The one thing I have to cherish for the rest of my life are these:
I gave each of the 4 grands a Christmas ornament to decorate for me to hang on my tree.
It kept them busy for about 30 minutes is all. I am in love with them and each child signed their name on the back of their creation.
Busy little beavers working on the ornaments.
Nothing like getting your picture taken when you have a mouth full of food. This is the youngest grandson.
We had Christmas on Friday with the entire family, at my house. I was so filled with love and warmth, I did not take any photos of that time. But the memories of the evening will be in my heart forever.
I don't know if I showed this to you guys or not. This was my luggage when I came home from Texas a couple weeks ago.
I still had 4.5 pounds before going over limit though. I don't have any idea why it was so much heavier then when I came. I did all the laundry, so there wasn't any extra dirt in it. LOL It might have been from all the Christmas gifts I purchased while in Texas.
So that is all from me this week. Have a great week and..............Happy Crafting!!!!
