Pics of Summer Randomness

Just thought I would write and catch up on all the goings on around here.  Of course, this is on the eve of the day where we have lost both Farrah and Michael Jackson.  Quite a day.
The news around here is far less earth-shattering but is good.   June 13th, we hit a craft sale and had a good day as a family.  June 20th, we took kidlet swimming only to find out that she wasn’t all that interested in the water.  However, we ended up meeting my sister-in-law and her kids at the same lake where they had their jet-skis and we had a blast.  Kidlet got to go out on a raft and splash around with the family.  It was the best day we’ve had in awhile.
Despite the cold temperatures we had this spring our garden is doing well.  This is the first year we’ve planted in the raised beds after having built them in the fall:

Also, I’ve started making stitch markers:

I guess that’s all from here at the moment.  There is knitting to be done!

Knitting+Jewelry=Hell Yeah

I’ve been needing stitch markers for awhile now and have been searching high and low for a set that was “distinctively me” and even after the incredible section on http://www.Etsy.com, I couldn’t bring myself to buy.  So, while searching yet again yesterday, I came across this blog post and got inspired: http://www.wormspit.com/stitchmarkers.htm.
So, my new mission is looking for various charms, etc. so I can make my own.   I thought it would be a nice addition to the business…especially seeing I bought a lot of jewelry making supplies last year and still have yet to use them… I’ll let you know how they turn out.
That’s all I have for the moment.  I’m really under the weather today and just need to hope that tomorrow will be better.
