Hello there! Did you miss me? Did you even notice that I was gone? Well, I'm back. I didn't leave the country, or the state, or even the county. I didn't go on a wild safari, or to the beach, or anywhere fun and exciting. Just been at home, crocheting, and enjoying the summer.
Our boy graduated high school in May. Why and how did this happen?!? I had been dreading this day since he started kindergarten. Time has passed way too fast for my liking, and now he will start college in four weeks. Four weeks! I'm excited and nervous for him. Thankfully, he chose the University of Toledo and will live at home and commute. That makes me happy. I'm not quite ready for him to leave home. Will I ever be ready for that? I think not.
We had a small graduation party for him last month. He didn't want a huge blow-out, so we had mainly our close family and a few friends. It turned out to be a great time and was just what he wanted.
A few weeks after that was July 4th. We had our annual backyard party. We live within walking distance to view the fireworks and have a party every year, and whoever wants to come over for some food, drinks, and fireworks is welcome. It's always a "blast!" Get it? Okay, I'm moving on now.
I added some new items to my Etsy Shop since my last post. These ruffled scarves are so fun and versatile. I have a couple of my own, and I love them.
I also added a couple new baby beanies. An Ohio State (Go Bucks!) and a Detroit Tigers. I'm planning on doing some other teams with the little baseball applique. I also have a really cute little football applique, and am going to do some football teams. I tend to stick to my family's favorite teams, and the teams that are in our local area. Got any suggestions for me? Leave me a comment and tell me your favorite team(s).
This is what I have been working on lately. A baby boy ripple afghan in light blue, chocolate brown, light brown, and white. I love, love, love ripple afghans. My Grandma (who taught me to crochet) made them, and I remember one in particular that was always draped across the back of their couch. I think the reason that I am drawn to them is because they remind me of her. This will be added to my Etsy Shop when it's finished. I have a couple afghans listed there already, but they are both for girls. This one is all about the boys.
Well, you are now pretty well caught up. I've just been hanging out at home, enjoying the summer with our son before school starts, and, as always, crocheting. Nothing too exciting, but it's all good.
Until next time . . .
