Catching Up....

I got a lot to catch you guys up on.  I finished several projects and Lexi will be starting school next week.  Which both exciting and scary.  She is very excited about it.  We are going tomorrow to meet with her teacher and get bus schedules.  Yes, she wants to ride the bus.  Scary, I know but I survived riding the bus from kindergarden all the way til I graduated high school.  We all called it "the cheese wagon".
Mary is pictured below modeling my newly finished Tradition Icelandic Shawl.  I changed the pattern up a little because I wanted some what tighter stitches.  The pattern originally calls for US 10 1/2 circular needles but I moved down to US 5 circular needles.  I'm pleased with the out come so is Mary.




Here is a picture of Racheal sitting up.  She is currently trying to scoot around on her belly so she will be mobile before long which means I will not be able to take her to work with me.  :(

The pictures below are a finished Key Hole Scarf that I've done in Red Heart Boutique Midnight.  Color: 1944 Harvest Moon. Dye Lot: 151
It's Acrylic, wool, metallic polyester, and nylon.  I didn't buy it for what is in it.  But the yarn consists of beautiful fall colors and with a little gold sparkle.
I making an ear warmer to go with it as well. Made out of the same yarn.  I'll post picture of it when I'm finished.
My pictures don't do the yarn justice.






Here is my school girl.  She has lost two teeth and has another wiggler on it's way out as well.  



Here is the finished pot holder from another post I had promised to post pictures of.



Here is my dishwasher my DH got before Racheal was born.  I've been meaning to post some pics of it.  I love it by the way.





This is the snapping turtle that Peppermint found in the yard around the beginning of summer.  I suppose she was coming up to lay her eggs somewhere. Lucky, Peppermint didn't decide to get a closer look.  Reese's wears size 11 shoes and that is his foot beside her.



Mary is being my little kitchen fairy and trying to help with dishes.


These are their projects they made at Bible school this year.  Yes, Mary got to go as well.


Here is the picture frame Lexi made.  Mary didn't get to make one because we didn't know they had classes for her age level until later in the week.


Finally I'll leave you with this picture of Mary and Lexi having a tea party.  Hopefully everyone will have a blessed evening.  Hoped you enjoyed my blog.  I hope get a post out at least once per week.  Thank you for visiting and come back soon.
