Throwing yarn, not up March 29, 2007

Ugh.  4 days of barfy ickiness.  Horrible.  It started on Saturday after work and I was down for the count.  I didn’t even pick up any knitting till yesterday.  Therefore, not much to show.  Kevin is away golfing with his buddies.  Owen had a sicky day yesterday  I might have sent him–as it was questionable and he was throwing his clothes at me demanding "bus".  But Kevin had kindly written in the communication notebook that Owen seemed to have a low grade fever.  All is well though…we had a lovely day with a bit of quality fun time at the beach.  What a gorgeous day. 

Tuesday was Owen’s annual meeting–which we sweated over for weeks.  Easy peasy.  No questions asked and everything is staying the same. The only change is an evaluation for a Dynavox.  Both scary and exciting.

Bof_springtime_3 With no knitting progress to show, I will share the finally finished Birds of  a Feather Printemps cross stitch.  Honesty compels me to mention I did not do this piece.  While searching for fabric on eBay, I found the darn thing already complete for less than the cost of the linen I planned to use.  I figured what the heck and birthday money was well spent.  I did help pick out the frame.  I really like it but don’t love it as well as I expected.  So, I am glad I didn’t put all of the time into it.  I did, however, order their Garden Cat and the linen.  No excuses now–except I have to get the floss together.  Do you think any less of me?

One last note, thank you for the kind words regarding my last post.  I had every intention of thanking each and every one of you via email but the pukies got in the way.  I hope to though…eventually.  If only we were all as good as that Carole!
