Happy Love Day everyone! I am more fond of the chocolaty aspects of this holiday, but I guess the fibery bits are good too.

Signs and Wonders

I know its the year of the rat, but this oddly shaped patch of sunlight in our hallway seems to indicate it's really the year of the dog:
The scottie dog to be precise. Maybe even our scottie dog. I think my doggie beats the pants off the Virgin Mary on a burrito any day, though they are probably both equally gassy.

So much for signs. Here's a wonder:
The Mysterious Pink Birthday Thing is revealed. This is Pea from Junior Knits, made for Jersey Girl's birthday. The wonderous part is that I actually finished it - and almost on time too (notice the priority mail box in the picture). Hah! Yay me!

Ye Olde Blogg Poste

First of all, a great big Thank You!! to my Dishcloth Swap pal Jill, who sent me a wonderful package chock full of summery goodness. Can you believe all these awesome treats fit in a little priority box? I absolutely love my new dishcloth, and isn't the little sheep soap just darling? I've already started using the pretty green project bag. Thank you so much Jill!!!

Jersey Family was in town for a birthday get together. We went to Medieval Times for dinner and a show. The dinner part was so-so, though my veggier-than-thou brother really liked the mushroom concoction they gave him. The show part wasn't bad.
The fight scenes do look staged, but they look pretty much like what you'd see at a play, only with real live horses. You can't really tell from this shot, but everyone in our party agreed our knight (the Red Knight at the bottom right) was definitely the cutest :)

The Mysterious Pink Birthday Thing is done (except for buttons... still looking for the perfect set). I'll post all the details when I get some good pictures.
