Project Life February 2024

 Here are my Project Life pages for February. I've been working on lots of other things and unfortunately my PL is taking a back seat. I am almost done with March though. I'll post about my girls trip to Vegas soon. OMG! What a blast we had.

Project Life January 2024

 Hey, hey!

I have to say I'm pretty happy to be up in my craft room playing with my Project Life again. It's been quite a while since I've been able to come up here and not feel guilty. It's a long story 😌.

So here's the first couple of weeks of January. Stay tuned for the rest of the month and some cruise pics from February in February's Project Life. Click on any photo to enlarge. 










As always,

Thanks for stopping by 😊

KAL

Hey!!

What's a KAL? It's a knit-A-Long. I've been working on a pair of socks when a new to me website Twice Sheared Sheep came into my life. Probably by FB or IG 😏. Anyway, they have cool little gadgets to help with knitting and they announced a KAL. It was for a hat called The Holly Beanie. Now I've done KAL's in the past with not much luck because they were a MKAL (mystery). 

The hat looked cute and the way KAL's work is the whole group of people who sign up all knit the same thing at the same time. We post pics of our progress along with questions etc. 

I just finished mine and it's cute and the color I chose goes nicely with my new coat. 


When you get near the crown you have such a small circumference, you change to double pointed needles. Some people knit the whole hat or whatever it is they're knitting in the round, on double points. Anyway, I have a book by Sally Melville called the knitting Experience Book 1, The Knit Stitch. That's how I learned to knit. I used this book. Anyway, she talks about how cool it looks to knit on double pointed needles because it looks soooo complicated and you look soooo talented but in reality, you're only knitting with 2 needles the whole time. πŸ˜€


I loved working the cables. It's been a long time since I did cables and Twice Sheared Sheep sent some awesome wooden cable needles in the kit for the hat. 

I'm working on my Project Life album for 2024 and will post January soon. 

As always,

Thanks for stopping by.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 Hi!!

It's still January so I figure it's still appropriate to say Happy New Year. 

Jenn & Dan's house is almost done! I think just a couple more weeks and they'll be moving in. It's gorgeous and I know they'll be happy there for a very long time. And us? We're thrilled they're going to be living so close and the other day when they went over to look at it, Ethan and Elliott were excited to look out their bedroom windows and be able to see MiMi & Papa's house! πŸ’“

Christmas was..WONDERFUL! Eric, Logan, Emmy and Eric's girlfriend Angela came from Williamsburg on Tuesday and Steve & Laureen came on Wednesday which was when we celebrated. My favorite holiday and once again it was so wonderful to have all my kids home πŸ’

As the New Year came, I realized in the first week that I hadn't even purchased my album to document my 2024 Project Life in, so I made a run to Hobby Lobby (😝 not my favorite craft store). They're the only place in my area who carry the 12x12 3 ring albums. I do love it though. 

Modern farmhouse 



I made my title page which I'm very happy with. 






So, as most years I'm going to try and stay caught up. I am journaling more so that will definitely help tell my stories. 

I have to show this cute card I got in an order from Paper Issues. Cassie always sends a little cute note or card. 


And, yesterday was Ethan's 3rd birthday. Since my blog is public I was asked by Jenn not to post pics of her kids (hence why their faces are smudged out above) so I can't share photos but HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY! 

As always,

thanks for stopping by.
