Happy Fourth


Happy Independence Day! A big "thank you" to those that serve our country. I hope your weekend was full of fun. The kiddoes spent lots of time swimming in the pool..

and I spent lots of time swimming and lounging by the pool, too. We had two cookouts, too, but really, I just enjoyed a quiet weekend with my favorite people...family!

I finally finished the bunting that took quite awhile to make. I'm happy with how it came out but it did give me some trouble along the way. Most of my problems were due to not quite understanding what the directions were telling me, as usual. So I had to rip back a few times.

I've been trying to knit a dishcloth a month for myself. My very favorite pattern is this Waffle dishcloth from Homespun Living. I have the pattern memorized and I like using it as well as looking at it. It has a nub to it so scrubs my countertops really good. I have a few other projects up my sleeve and will post when they're done. Summer is tough, though, as it's my favorite time of year and I tend to be outside waaaay more than inside! Hope you're enjoying yours, too!
