I finally got a picture of Max with a smile on his face. Apparently the door between the camera and him is the answer. This is how my sweet boy usually looks until that dreaded camera comes out. He actually closes his eyes when I put the camera up in front of my face. I guess all future photos of Max will have to be taken behind the sliding glass door.
23 completed flowers!!!!!!!! Can I tell you how happy that makes me? I really love this project. It is so much fun trying to figure out the right color combinations, and repeating those that you really love. I think the shawl will take somewhere around 60 flowers, so I have a long, long way to go. I am tall so I really have to make a longer shawl to go with my height. I have had quite a bit of time this weekend to work on this, so I have made a lot of progress. My week is looking busy so my crochet time is about to be drastically cut back. Bummer!
As I have been so busy crocheting, I have not been busy knitting. This is the dress I am knitting. There is only 2 inches completed. So again, I have a long way to go. This project has been in my car. I usually have something much smaller for my car project, like a scarf, not a dress. However, at least it is available for when I am in car line or at swim practice.
Today I met my oldest son's first girl friend. He was a nervous wreck bringing her to the house. I think we are pretty nice parents, but apparently we just might not be cool enough. She is lovely. Ah..... young love is so special isn't it? I hope it lasts a bit as he really seems to like her. Going on real dates, not dates in a group is serious business. He actually had to meet her parents, get her home on time, etc. I guess it shows that he is growing up, maturing, and making some nice choices. It is so lovely to see.
Hope your weekend has been healthy and happy. So many people in blog land have been ill, so I wish you all a speedy recovery. Hope you have found time to do something you love before your busy week begins.
