Sometimes the good stuff just comes at you all at once.
1) My in-laws are in town. It's always a hoot when they visit. The big kids love them, and even little Z is starting to smile at her Baba and Papa. they are supposed to move out here in a few years, and we can't wait. I want our kids to have as good a relationship with them as I did with my Grandmas.
(Of course, the fact that they're taking the kids to the amusement park today means that our house is oddly quiet for a Saturday. That's nice, too.)
2) I got a copy of the Fall Knitscene
-- it's gorgeous! (I'm not just saying that b/c my design's in it. There are several things in there that I want very much!)
And it's bigger! Love
3) I just had another piece accepted for publication; woot! (And yeah, I really do still go around the house saying, "Go Cher, it's ya birf-day...")
4) Speaking of birthdays, my MIL brought along my present:
It's a lovely shawl, made with Elann's Seta Lana
, and I adore it.
This up close shot shows the texture and the color more accurately:
Baby liked it, too:
