These are items I've been working on lately. Also completed two onesies appliqued with ties. So Cute! Will try to post pictures soon. Life took on some new challanges recently with some major dental work I had done. I'm adjusting and trying to figure out how I like the work. :) My dog had surgery on his back leg the same time, so we're both healing about the same. We have a ways to go in that regard. My sister lost her father-in-law 2 1/2 months after we lost our father and so, my daughter and I will be making that trip back home to go to the funeral this Saturday. I don't think we'll get a reprieve for the weather, however. So, I'm sure it will be hot, hot, hot!
I've been following "Knock-off-wood" on Facebook and so jealous of the work she creates! I want to try a project, but, not sure what I want to try and not sure if I have the right tools to make it happen! But, I can dream, can't I?
The other changes in my household, are the fact that we've taken up walking and changing our lifestyle from sedentary to moderately active. We are moving and that's always a good thing. Wanted to remember my dad's dedication to walking that he's done faithfully for the past 15-20 years and so, am committing myself to walking as much as possible for him. We did 3 miles last night in the heat! Yikes! But, if we keep going, who knows, maybe we'll be as lean and strong as he was in his later years. I'm not getting any younger and I need to keep myself healthy!
And I need to lose weight too!
