Hi, just wanted to let you know the prize package arrived today! Thanks so much for the yarn and the booklet! That was the one I had my eye on! :) Thanks again, I will really enjoy using it all!


Bron, don't worry about me at all-just filling you in-it'll all pass.

Sounds like a disaster with school. I found out today, bunches (well ones I talked too) all got their class assignments and bus passes/schedules last week-we haven't gotten anything-hopefully it was just misdelivered and I can pick up the stuff at school in the next few days, but needless to say, I'm anxious about who her teacher is (she isn't) and I am also anxious about a new 6 days schedule they implemented (don't ask, I don't know-apparently instead of 5 days schedule-gym two days and she could wear dress shoes on Wednesday because no gym or outside play, now it's a six day thing and if a Monday is a holiday, it switches to Tuesday and the count starts again-sounds like headaches for parents and teachers alike).


Glad the schedule snafu got worked out. That would have stressed me out, too. I worried a bit last night about Sierra's first day of first grade, but it was all good. She had a great day.

Your roses are pretty. My grandmother use to have a pomegranate tree. They are a pain to eat, but are really good (will stain your clothes.)

My garden is producing mass quantities of tomatoes that are really sweet. This year was definitely year of the zucchini and tomato.


Your roses are BEAUTIFUL!


Sesame looks great (so do those roses); I thought you were using 3 shades of blue. Is the beige the new CE mixed with your old?
Those bottom potholders on the front cover of that pamphlet? I know they're crochet, but they are very similar to the hexagonal dishcloths in Mason Dixon Knitting, which I was just looking at last night. There's not much new under the sun, just new ways of seeing things.
I hope you slept better last night!


I'm so sory ot hear about your sleep problems :( Oddly, neither of us have been sleeping well that lat couple of days - and we don't have kids, scools or schedules to worry about! At least you've got a good reason.

That little...sweater...vest...tabard? It's very pretty and I think your changes sound fine. I imagine it will look great on you and look forward to seeing it finished!

The computer scrambled 800 schedules????? Ye gods and little fishies.

The swatch and Blue Sesame are looking good!

Your roses are beautiful. Mine didn't flower much this year.

I am so comfortable in my routine that anything that disrupts it or threatens to disrupt it sends me into bouts of insomnia. I can really empathize with you.

My son most likely gets his OCD (the real kind, not the joking around kind) from me.

I love the color combinations of Blue Sesame. Can't wait to see more progress on it.

I swear you've bitten me with the crochet bug but I can't find a pattern and yarn I want to crochet. LOL
