Wow, it's been a month since my last post. Let's see... My birthday was great. It was nice to see friends and family and celebrate another year. I didn't do much on my day but sit around and spin and knit. Quite frankly that was just what I needed. It was nice. Thanks to those who sent birthday wishes, much appreciated.
June has been just as busy as the last couple months have been. Some friends got married, it was a lovely event. The Hubby had his wisdom teeth out and was doing a really good bruised chipmonk impression for a couple days. His advice is to do that when you are young. You just don't heal as quickly at 42. Father's Day was nice, much hanging out with the Dads occured. All good things.
This last weekend was the highlight for me. I went to
Black Sheep! My mom and I met in Eugene and had a great time wandering through all the vendors and seeing the animals. I'd love to show you the pictorial of all we did, but the truth is that my camera never left my bag. I had plans, lots of plans to take a ton of pictures, but it just never happened. All I have is a couple crappy shots I took with my camera phone. Alas, I am a bad blogger.
There is still hope for me though. I do have some loot! And if I can get my you-know-what together I'll post pics of my stash enhancement. It was fun shopping with mom. We each had a set amount of cash to spend. We made our first pass through and saw everything that was there. Then we went and had lunch and pondered what really called out to us. After lunch we hunted down the things that we couldn't pass up. We didn't realize until we got back to the hotel that mom had purchased all fiber and I had got the all yarn direction.
We spent Saturday night watching the Mariner's game in the hotel and each of us bouncing from project to project with a bad case of crafty ADD. The whole experience was a little overwhelming. There was so much to see there's just no way to take it all in. I got a little knitting and a little spinning done, but not much. I had a great time and am looking forward to going again next year. I'll be sure to get my registration in super early next year!
