2010 Project Collage

I'm starting a new tradition.  At the end of each year, I'm going to put all my project pictures into a collage and post it here.  It's a nice walk down memory lane. 

January started out with a HUGE order of hand-dyed yarn for a LYS in my hometown in Michigan.  Who-da-thunk?!?! 

Spring was filled with learning how to make soap ... so much fun and it is the most lovely stuff in the world!

During Summer Break I did a modicum of knitting but crocheted a plethora of dishcloths for Christmas.

I survived Abigail returning to school (without feeling like my world fell apart) and discovered crocheting with bright, happy, funky colors in lovely wool yarn.  Oh.My. ... sighhhhh.  This was a great surprise to me but I embraced it wholeheartedly as I do all my fiber hobbies.

This blog was another Great Surprise.  All of a sudden LOTS of people (at least I think so) are reading it.  Did I do something different?  I'm  not sure ... I try not to over-analyze it.  =)  But it sure does make me feel great!!  I promise to keep doing what I'm doing because I love having you ALL as a part of my life.

Good-bye, sweet Twenty-Ten.  You've been a good year and it feels so good to be able to say that.

Lots of Love,

Lots of Busyness, an Update, and a Thank You

Thank you for understanding the quietness around here lately.  =)

We've been busy with appraisals, inspections, and paperwork since we got back from our Pittsburgh Trip on Wednesday afternoon.  Mr. K leaves for Pittsburgh tomorrow afternoon so he can start his new job on Monday. 

I don't know how it happened but Abigail has just one more week of school before Christmas Break.  We'll probably spend a couple days in DE doing girly-artsy-crafty things together, drive to Pittsburgh to spend some time with Mr. K, and then continue on to Michigan to spend Christmas with family. 

Every morning I get on the computer to check email, read blogs, and see what's going on at Dutch Girl Diary.  Without fail there is one or two new followers every day ... that just blows me away!

Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.



PS - I finished another Log Cabin Blanket ... it's cute as a button but needs to be blocked. =)

I'm sitting in our hotel in Pittsburgh typing this. 

We flew in Saturday for our official "House Hunting-Church Checking Out-School Visiting Trip."  There was a bit of a rocky start on Saturday afternoon but everything smoothed out beautifully.

Sunday I met a mom at the church we visited that, get this ... READS.MY.BLOG.  Is that cool or what?!?! 

Monday I visited a yarn shop just a hop,skip and jump away from where we will live.  It is BEAUTIFUL and will become my new hang-out. 

Today Abigail visited her potential school and she loves it.  =) 

I'm REALLY happy with the progress we've made on this trip.  There was a bit of a rocky start on Saturday afternoon, but everything smoothed out beautifully.  I'm excited about our new life in Pittsburgh!

BUT ...

We will be leaving behind some really, really wonderful friends.  That makes me very, very sad.  =(  So go tell your closest friends how much you love them RIGHT now, ok!?!?
