Say something....anything.

What to say when you have nothing to say?? That's me today. Sorry for the silence. I am here, and I am busy. Very busy.

Let's update, shall we???

1. The (insert swear word here) Lace Shawl. Oh I was cooking right along. Bragging to my mother on the phone about how I am up to pattern row 92....out of 100 and almost, almost ready to knit the last TEN ROWS of edging, and block this puppy. So, I was knitting, in bed, late at night, while watching tv, and if that is not the kiss of death, I don't know what is. Yah, I messed up, BIG TIME. So, bottom line, FIFTY (yes 50!!) rows are gone. (for you knitters - that is where I put my last "lifeline" and I will put them in every ten rows from now on. I learned my lesson!)

2. So, as a "palate cleanse", if you will, I am making a baby bib. Boring, easy and fast! And besides I have TWO friends who are currently expecting and one is having TWINS!!! These bibbies will come in handy!

3. The Fall Collection of jewelry is "almost" done. Almost in the fact it needs one more piece and then it all needs to be photoed. And that could take all day.

4. The garden and lawn is out of control. This has got to be the rainiest August ever, and the lawn is growing fast and furious. Except of the small patch out by my office/studio....the bunny is taking care of that! Don't get me wrong, I love rain and mowing the lawn has become a "Zen-like" experience. I swear I do my best thinking to the sound of the gas engine! And I am preparing, cooking and freezing every vegetable I can get my grubby paws on. There will be quite a bit of eggplant parm eating this winter!

So those things along with life are keeping me hoppin'. I will try to take some pictures of the raspberries which have been not only delicious, but plentiful. Until then.......
