Who Am I?

Firstly, My apologies…I’m late in posting.   Second… this topic seemed easy, until I tried to write! 

I am a 38 year old mom of four beautiful children, three daughters and one son.  I am a wife…a daughter, sister, friend.  I’m married (for the second time) to the sweetest, hardest working man I know.  He would do anything for any of us, without a thought.  I really love him.

Growing up I was always determined and yet really shy and sensitive.  I still am.  I take things too much to heart.  I overreact and say things I wish I hadn’t.  I was the ‘smart kid’ in my family, the first to graduate high school, the ‘should be, could be’ kid.  I didn’t choose career, I chose family.  I suppose I should be able to do both, but I can’t.  Not in a way that I feel good about.  I feel like a child-woman, inside.  I look at the other moms and wonder why I can’t do everything the way they do.  They are the ‘real grown ups’ lol. They make it look so easy, they even make it look fulfilling.  When I’ve worked full time I felt like I was running a race that never stopped.  I felt like I was missing out on my kids, on my family…like the job was keeping me from my life, which was flying by anyways.  If that makes any sense!

 I love to create things, I always have.  I started crafting when I was little.  Macrame, knitting, sewing, crocheting, embroidery, cross stitch… you get the idea 🙂  My mom used to say I never finished anything…so now I’m careful to finish MOST things.

I’ll likely add to this…as I said, this subject is HARD.

Thanks for reading!

Yay, I’m Back!

Hello 🙂

I’ve been offline for about a day, and I hated it!  SOMEONE forgot to pay the bill on time.  ‘Nuff said.

 Nothing like losing your communications tools to learn how much you really really love/need/want them!  To think when I was starting out and my kids were little, I went without a phone voluntarily and didn’t even mind.

I just HAD to do something with the Mirasol Hacho that I bought, so I started a pair of gloves…

My 'no no' gloves

The pattern is my own and I’m calling them the ‘no no’ gloves because I did the big NO NO and mixed Patons kroy (fingering weight) with the Mirasol (light worsted, dk weight).  It was what I had that worked, colour wise.  They came out pretty nicely…or at least the first one did 🙂 

 The Hacho is beautiful and soft as can be.  I would love to make a sweater with it someday.  Another thing on my ‘want’ list.  Very nice, rich and vibrant colours.  I wonder if it will bleed much when washed…hoping not!
