I do love Pinterest though. I ignore it for months, but then every once in awhile I will go back and look at things I liked or wanted to do (and see if I followed through - and usually not). It's a good place to park my whims. If I'm interested in felt Christmas ornaments today, I will probably lose interest by next week, but if I ever do want to remember where I saw that cute blue reindeer, I'll know where to go.
Yesterday was spent at the doctor's office with Mama and watching this week's "Downton Abbey" with Mike. It doesn't seem like that could take your whole day, but it pretty much did.
Sometimes we get nice interruptions from Guatemala. This is a video of Lauren and Allyn "bouncing like crazy in their chairs." This is something called What's App on Mike's phone, a way to text and send photos internationally.
These things are like magic to me. We can Skype and have dinner with Graysen or watch her play. She has no idea who we are yet, but I think we are a nice distraction for her and allows her to smile and reach for Mom's phone.
While she had her blood work done, I tried untangling the mess, but somehow I got the yarn wound around the handle of Mama's walker while I was admiring someones Auburn slippers and finding out she hated cats. I was in a panic because I knew Mama would not be good with rolling along dragging a skein of yarn behind her, but it all worked out before we left.
I still have some untangling to do. I have done a little knitting this week though. Emily said Graysen needed some more bathcloths, so I'm working on her a couple.
This one is a birthday cupcake, in case the design is not clear.
The Sugar and Cream cotton yarn just doesn't make as soft a cloth as the Hobby Lobby brand - Love this Cotton, I think. It does fine for dishrags that get used and abused and washed hundreds of times. This one has a Snoopy design on it and is much softer.
I started sewing the sequins and beads on the Christmas ornaments. It's slow going but perfectly fine when you have the computer set up with one of those Amazon Prime movies.
I may or may not have made these jerseys! I have been doing sewing for Stitchworks, making the blank jerseys, and Jen dyes them and add the lettering and stripes. For my last sewing, I asked her to make Graysen 4 jerseys in lieu of pay.
They turned out so sweet, just in time for a birthday gift. One Washington Huskies, one UNC, and 2 Auburn.
So almost another week gone. The weather has been cold but sunny the past few days.
I haven't had a new picture from Washington lately, so I'll post some sweet snow pictures.
This was Graysen's first real snow except for some flurries.
The world looks better from Mom's arms.
And best friends Mila and Owen to discuss things with. Sweet babies.
