Blahs

Well, its been another 5 days, and its just blahs. I don't have the heart to cruise the blogs, cause I'll just want what I can't have. DH was let go from his job on Thursday, and while we are praying its by Devine intervention, I still have that ball in the pit of my stomach. I'm praying that he gets the job he really wants, the one he applied for/briefly interviewed for this morning, but that can take weeks to determine.

5 Days!

Oh my goodness! The things that have happened in the last five days!

I made a skirt - I'll try to get pictures of it up soon. It was very easy, and I only messed up a few times. But I learned from them and hubby has already said that I can buy more fabric. Also - my boys want to learn to sew. I'm going to be looking for an easy pattern for them to start with.

I haven't finished a thing knit-wise. I've got a ton on the needles!

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory has some amazing knits in it. I LOVE the afgahn you can see behind Grandpa Bucket as seen here.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was a fantastic read. I'll re-read it more slowly after DH finishes it.

At Church, we're working on expanding our nursery! We have beds for 12 babies and lately we've just been overflowing! Some of the babies we have don't need beds any longer, we've tagged them as crawlers, but the crawler room is full to busting too, so we can't move them up. And there are more on the way in the next few months - 4 that I know of.

We're also doing a Back-Yard Bible Club (am I a yarn-nerd if I misspell yard as yarn?) at a huge low-income apartment complex this week. That makes tonight my last night at home all week!

Can you say BUSY??? Oh Well, I love it! Even if it does hamper my exercise time.

So, I'm having an idea

Tell me what you think, pelase?

In the spirit of Secret Pal/Back-Tack/etc, I was wanting to set up a seasonal, one item required, secret swapy-thing.

Here is what I'm thinking rule-wise:

All items must fit in a USPS priority mail box #O-1096S (this is a small VHS-ish sized box)

Item should ship by a certain date (by the schedule)

Participant list will be limited to 100 per season

The "THEMES" that I'm thinking of:

Fall - Ship by 9/15
warm woolies - arm warmers, headbands, one-skein wonders (small things that can be knit with one skein)

Winter - Ship by 11/15
Holiday - Christmas knitting for the knitter (stocking stuffers!)

Spring - Ship by 3/15
Spring cleaning - knit your favorite washcloth

Summer - ship by 6/15
Summer Lovin - send things knitterly that you enjoy in the summer- special hand creams, favorite summer yarns (cotton, hemp, linen) or shawl pattern.


So - whaddya think? Should I Set up a new blog for this?
