I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

my needle is here :-D

My needle arrived while I was away. I was so excited to get my socks moved over and finished.
It was a nice trip to Harrisonburg. Very nice people and the weather was gorgeous. It is a really pretty part of the country. We drove through the Shenandoah National Park. I would have liked to have time to drive the Skyline drive, but I'll have to go back for that.
DS was home this weekend. He breezed through here last week while I was away. He was 3 days late returning from his job and getting to school. He had emailed his teachers so he wasn't expected. He didn't have time to pack his things, just grabbed what he absolutely needed and came home this weekend to really pack. While he was here I had him be my random number generator. Fiesta is the lucky winner of my green giveaway. You all had great ideas. Check out Howdy's idea for the reusable paper towels. Great way to bust some stash.
Misty was very happy to have her big brother home. For some reason she loves his boots (probably because he is allergic to her). I missed the picture of her trying to wear them. She puts both front paws in one and lays on the toe. As soon as I started taking pictures she decided she had to get out. Just like a cat, independent.

I made a pair of socks from that yarn too! It's funny how the different patterns made the stripes look different. Misty is a cutie.
