Hangin' with the Girls

Don't you want one of these? Love, love, love! SCRAP in San Francisco and their huge screen of yarn balls. Of course I'll never have such a beautiful piece of art in our home because: 1. i will knit or crochet or felt every scrap of yarn i have. 2. no idea where such a beautiful piece of work would hang. 3. the dust.
so, the photo will be my inspiration and art.

pizza after the manicure/pedicure appointment. Pizza Zombie, Nomad, Monster...something. Great colourful artwork all over here too. Sorry I didn't take any photos.

Stitch n Pitch goodie bag. Love the orange...I'll definitely be using this in my pile of grocery and farmer's market shopping bag collection. Projects I may do: a version of the Scribble Scarf - though the pattern here is called Cobweb - ick. The knit earrings...been on my list for a long time. The fun fur flipflops, they are growing on me. Couple of projects in the Craft: magazine promo. Will not be making the baseball hat or the ribbon poncho. Anyone know what special project the double headed crochet hook is for?

We took the train in! Sat on the top of the double-deck train. fun! Dropped us off three blocks from the park - excellent. Then went after the extra innings game to the train station to find long lines and no train movement! Didn't get home until 1:00 a.m. In summary....train in excellent. game & hangin' with friends, excellent. view, excellent. train home, not so much. But, that didn't stop us from considering the evening a great success.

Hi Celeste! I have been thinking about you guys a lot so I just wanted to send a little love your way.

We moved out of our house yesterday and are now in Dayton. So far, I have not freaked out about being "homeless." In fact the lack of responsibility is a bit liberating! I am sure that will change after a few weeks with 3 boys in an apartment. But for now, I am going to enjoy this wave of contentment while it lasts (and finally start the final Harry Potter book).

How is the job hunt going? How are you handling all of the emotional ups and downs that come along with the uncertainty? It looks like it hasn't dampened your spirit - your blog is as beautiful and uplifting as ever!

Please send C our love and tell her that we are sorry we forgot her b-day. You guys are always so good about that, and we are the ones with good intentions and a drawer full of unsent cards!

Hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying summer!

Love - Stacey
