Green cowl

I'm back to knitting on the loom. It's so FAST and EASY! Here's a green cowl I whipped up.
I added a little wrap around band and a nice big button.
So cozy!

Rehearsing for Little Women, which I am assistant directing;
And watching Ryan lose at this claw game!

Happy birthday Leyna

Look who turned 5 on the weekend - Leyna!
She had a party with her friends at an indoor beach. It was Frozen themed.
And just look at this amazing cake my sister made! (She made these other awesome cakes!)
We kept the celebration going with a family dinner at the Old Spaghetti Factory.
Then back to my parents' house for…MORE cake. Happy birthday Leyna!!

Fall Light and Shadow

The late afternoon sun outside my office window...
Creates lovely shadows that are A-ok!

Attention! I'm here to tell you about Parfumerie, which is playing now at the Metro Theatre.
It's directed by my husband Christopher King - he wrote a blog post about the opening last Saturday, have a look.
It was such a great show - really great script and some amazing talent on that stage! The hubs did an awesome job, and after the opening night party, he hopped on the piano and charmed everyone even more. Multi-talented, I say!!

Dinner dates

I had a dinner with a couple of hooligans the other night, Aileen and Jonah.
Aileen and I were high school classmates for a few months, way back when. She isn't much of a hooligan anymore, but her son is.
He kept us on our toes, tossing noodles and toys every which way, and getting in and out of his high chair, and charming the waitresses on staff.
He did stop for a second so I could snap some pics. WHAT A CUTIE!!

Crochet Flowers

I've been making crocheted flowers from leftover bits of yarn for ages. I don't know where I got the patterns that I use, mostly now I just do it from memory. I put them on headbands, make them into other crafts, and usually give a bunch away when I sell at craft fairs.

Look at this lovely purple blend - it's so ME. I like purple and burgundy hues
And with a green background, the purples pop nicely.
Here's an assortment of some more flowers I whipped up the other night. They're such great projects for all your yarn leftovers.
