A Weekend And A Wedding....

This past weekend found us once again heading north to Minneapolis. This time it was to attend the wedding of my niece. I love weddings. And this wedding was so beautiful. It was especially precious to see my brother as 'Father of the Bride'. It was great to spend time with friends and family. I am extremely blessed with a wonderful family.

Here is a photo of my brother dancing with his daugher during the Father/Daughter dance which was a highlight. The song was beautiful and you could see that they were enjoying every minute.







Before we left for Minneapolis, my daughter and I spent some time in the kitchen making biscotti. It is one of my favorite treats. Especially dunked in a nice cup of coffee. The cherry/almond are my all-time favorites; but the chocolate dipped ones come a very close second. If you would like either recipe, just let me know. I'd be happy to share.








And, the big news is, my clogs are ready to felt! I will be felting them tomorrow and have my fingers crossed. There are some 'issues' with the first one I knit, that even the magic of felting may not solve. The pattern does get easier after the first couple of attempts and I am excited to start my next pair. Steve and the kids all want a pair.. just have to decide who to start with...






I also have 2 bags to felt, the first being a modified Vintage Bag, which I have added the balloon bag bottom to. (Like the one I did for the tote exchange.) I still think this is my favorite pattern so far. The other bag is a secret at this point. Pending how it turns out, it may be a presento for my most faithful blog reader... and you know who you are!! (Though you have YET to post a comment!!)



Goodbye for now....

I thought I was your most faithful blog reader!! (I'm thinking that a non-poster cannot be called a faithful blog reader. Am I right? Or am I right right right?)
