Not doing too much...

Which is why I haven't blogged in about five days. I did start on LHN Nature's Beauty last night. I'm really loving it! This is definitely my favorite LHN yet!

LHN Nature's Beauty started 3/22/07

I'm using the recommend fabric - 32 ct. R&R Flax Fields and DMC thread. I can tell this design is going to be like chocolate for me... I'm not going to want it to end! :)

Well, I'm headed up to Georgia for a few days on Monday. I'm leaving Bradley and Matthew with my MIL and Jake with my mom. I'm so anxious over leaving Matthew - I've only been apart from him for two days before - and I was just a 1/2 hour away. I'm going to miss them all so much, but this is definitely a much needed break. I can't wait to sleep in, and not only sleep in, but have an uninterrupted sleep!

I have also been working on Bradley's ripple afgan. I think someone asked about the pattern before and I forgot to answer. The pattern comes from 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns by Jan Eaton. It has crochet and knit patterns.

Ripple Afghan

I'm just using ordinary kitchen cotton from Lion Brand and Peaches & Cream. I'm trying not to have any rhyme or reason to my stripes - I've been asking Jake or Bradley which color to do next. :)

Tomorrow we are going to a spring training baseball game - Tigers vs. Braves. My traitor sons say they want the Tigers to win. I guess I'm the original traitor though because all of my family are Tigers fans. :) Well, not much else going on here. I'm hoping our hotel has wifi, so I can get online. Write later! :)


  1. Beautiful new start! I love the stripe blanket too - what fun!

  2. Oh that is tough being away from our love bugs but think of that uninterrupted sleep!!!!!!! I'm so jealous. With a 7 week old, sleep is surely a luxury - or should I say, sleep for long blocks at a time. Ha! Enjoy your trip and take pictures of your little munchkins with you of course. Have fun!

  3. Lovely new start! And I completely missed your beautiful finishes last week so belated congratulations!

  4. Great start :) Seeing this one started and finished by those stitching it has put a bee in my bonnet.
