Zendala Dare #45

This is my first dare in several months, and I had so much fun doing it. Thanks for a great design, Erin!

This was a great weekend, all things considered. We went over to Columbia, for Anna's 4th Birthday, and we had such a good time. We kept missing the snow that they were getting in SC. As a matter of fact, shortly after we left to come home, it started snowing at Richard and Kate's house. I couldn't help but laugh. This is a picture of Anna with her cake. It was beautiful and delicious! Here she is opening presents....she had a great birthday! We kept Lucas this weekend too and we took him over to the party. He was so good and everyone loved him. Here he is with his Uncle Richard: And here with Poppy and Anna: And of course, here is my best bud, who is in a growing spurt right now. He is getting so tall and thin. He will be 8 in May. I finished a pair of great socks over the weekend. I have started another pair of top down, but I am getting ready to start a pair of toe up. I have been trying to learn toe up for a while now, and I am ready to strike out and go for it! Knitting socks is my most favorite knitting, and I am determined to become an expert. Will post pics tomorrow. My long weekend is almost over and it is back to work tomorrow, but I am ok with that. It gives me a break from home! Til next time~~~

Catching Up

It has been a crazy couple of weeks! The Falcons lost to the 49er's and the rest is history. I have been trying to work on my art and knit, but other things seem to always take precedence. We did have Brian and Anna last weekend, and we had such a good time.
This is Anna, chasing a bird in the azaleas. She really thought that she could catch him. She is the cutest!
And then she realized that she couldn't! :)
Brian has lost his first tooth! He is now a snaggletooth, as my Dad used to say! We had a great weekend, but I was exhausted on Sunday night. I have been printing the dare from The Bright Owl, but never seem to get around to doing it. I love to do them, but haven't had time lately. I have done some art recently, mostly late at night, after everyone is in bed and I can have some time to myself. Have not been able to sleep much, so I take advantage of the free time, since I have so little.
These are some of my latest drawings. I have been knitting some too. I am trying to finish up a few UFO's and I am still trying to learn toe-up socks. Til next time~~~
