Baby Girl and I made our way to the front of the Aspen Ski Company website!
So for Baby Girl’s first school Valentine’s Day party we could not just hand out the little white envelope cards with her “T” written on them. (Although since my mom is the instigator of this love of the day we do own the Barbie cards, My Little Pony cards and Olivia cards – thanks Mom!)
We have nice valentine’s from paper source (thanks mom!), in little cellophane bags, with candy and party favors. Baby Girl and I had great fun sorting and stuffing all the little bags. I hope they fit in the kids little mailboxes they made!
For the past six years I’ve worked at an arts center as an administrator and gallery coordinator. I’ve overseen reams of paper and truckloads of art work. It’s been a lot of fun – I work with good people and we work on a gorgeous old sheep ranch on four acres in the mountains. But as of yesterday everyone knows that I’m moving on…
I’m really excited!
(one of the people I’ve worked with for years brought me this book as a present. people can be so amazingly thoughtful and generous!)
I have another project going too – the crochet clutch from Happy Hooker. The Boy was very sweet and picked out this yarn as a little present one day.
I learned to crochet before I learned to knit. But since I started knitting I haven’t crocheted since. I felt like I should pick it up again before it’s completely gone from my brain. I still had to look up a bunch of how-to in the book. The book is fabulous by the way. I’ve really been enjoying the repetitive, simplicity of the pattern.
I completed Baby Girl’s shrug from the Hello Yarn handspun. She likes it – which is fabulous! (The leg warmers have yet to see a second wearing.) It looks great with a white t-shirt (although she was willing to put it on for pics so who was I to complain about it with the brown polka dots). It’s such an easy knit for a chunky handspun and she gets the charm of the basically useless girlish accessory! I knit it in one piece on two circulars (cast off, then one circular, cast on and two circulars).
