I hadn't intended to be gone so long. Blogging seems to be one of those activities that once you stop, it's hard to get the ball rolling again. So where have I been? Well, I traveled for work for two weeks with a week of vacation in between. Vacation was spent in the mountains. The two days it didn't rain, we spent a lot of time in a couple of parks. Having picnics, chatting, and enjoying each others company. For me, a bit of stitching. For Greg, a bit of jogging. Perfect.
Our Picnic Spot
The other couple of weeks I missed was just life and getting caught up after being out of my site at work for three weeks. Things are returning to normal. I'm tired though and hope that my work travel is over for the year. At this point, it looks like it is!
I missed the August Theme-a-Licious update. Better late than never. The theme for August was :
Embrace the Olympic motto--Citius, Altius, Fortius (Faster, Higher, Stronger)--by elevating your mind. It's the perfect time to learn something new! Or maybe achieve some goals..
My goal was to get a knitting project on the needles and to make some progress on it. The pattern called for a cashmere blend yarn but I wanted something "curl up on the couch cozy and warm" so I went with a bulky yarn. Here is where I am at just less than 1 ball knit up. This was really moving along until after vacation. Not much has happened since then. Septembers theme is about smalls - I'm going rogue and working on BAPs....more to come at the end of the month!
On our last day in the mountains, I started a new stitching project. Here's a peek. I hope to show you more at the end of the month.
