I was thinking this might be a fun next project!
I haven’t been blogging, we’ve been busy, but mostly for the reason that we’re having a lot of upcoming baby showers, and I’ve been knitting up baby sweaters like crazy. A little taste:
and also I need a bit of help. Which buttons would you use?
and also I need some help. The buttons will be on the top, fastening the neck opening. Are the flowers a bit too cutesy? When in doubt the plainer is a bit better, however, the flowers are pretty darn cute.
And this was our yard sale score! There weren’t many good sales on Saturday, but this one we found in our FRONT YARD! The girl who lives upstairs was having a yard-sale, and it’s still residing in our kitchen, because of the move we’ve got nowhere to put it, but hopefully it’ll be our new nightstand for the bedroom.
And it’s got my birthday flowers on it!
So go back and let me know which buttons I should use for the sweaters!
Today we’re doing our first round of yard-sales. I am pretty excited, and hoping we come back with some stuff for the new house.
I actually do sort of like rummaging through junk.
Also hitting up the Farmer’s Market, the graduation parties, you know, everything a good Saturday is made of. Oh, well that and cleaning the house.
So maybe I won’t get around to cleaning the house today….
One of my very bestest friends, Autumn, soon to be wed, made these Scrabble Pillows for Paul and I! Aren’t they ADORABLE?! I LOVE them. They are so cute, sitting on our couch.
She made them herself! She painted on the letters with fabric paint, and sewed them and everything! What crafty friends I have.
They make me want to start up a Scrabble competition with the hubby right now!
and Charissa got me some lovely office stuff, and made me a cute flower bracelet! And she even has a DIY up on her blog, so you can make your own!
What amazing friends I have!
I’ll keep you updated!
I finished the Buttony Sweater this evening! I love it. I haven’t blocked it yet, obviously, but wanted to show you all.
Not the most flattering view, but it was taken from the couch.
But I am up pasty my bedtime, so goodnight.
So this weekend we had my friends Charissa and Autumn, as well as my brother Aaron and his girlfriend Cynthia out to visit, because we were having a show. We had a lot of fun, and it was a very, very busy weekend. We planned a pre-show BBQ, because we were having our concert in a barn, so it seemed appropriate. But we got the grill out there and it was out of propane. Oops. So we had people run back into town, but even so, the burgers took forever to cook and we ended up starting the show about an hour late, but once it got going we had an awesome time.
There was plenty of time to socialize while waiting for the burgers to cook.
And Paul’s mother, Diane, was nice enough to be one of our opening acts. She is absolutely an incredible musician! (No wonder Paul is so musically gifted, because his dad can rock out, too!)
We played in this amazing barn out in the rolling hills of the Palouse. It was gorgeous out there, although it did get a little chilly.
Check out our myspace page to hear some of the music.
P.S. A big shout-out to Isaiah Eyre for all of the amazing photography!
