Week of Happy


One of the blogs I read regularly, is not a sewing blog - she's a knitting blog.  And I've developed a relationship with her and have done a fair amount of test knitting for her in the past.  She is currently participating in 52 weeks of happy.  (No links - because I don't feel like it.)

I love the idea of a week of happy.  It rather goes along with my Thankful Thursday theme - in that it really is the small things in life that make a difference.  So - with not a lot of sewing going on lately and big complicated knitting projects - I'm giving you sneak peaks and talking about the small things that make a difference.

As Beau gets older and is more willing to listen and hang in the front yard with JB, he's allowed to do that more.  He was laying in the sun and I stepped out to see where he was - he sat up and looked at me.  To me, his face just says 'what?' to me. 

If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen some of the other things that made me happy last week, they include:

*the view downtown from my office
*impromptu parties on the deck with friends
*smoked bacon

What's brought you happy this week?

Shawl Love

A sweet young thing that I've known since she was in middle school is getting married next month.
I offered to knit her a shawl and found a lovely pattern on Rav.
She said yes!
She came over on Sunday and picked it up.

She plans to drape it over her shoulders for the 'get-away.'
There will be more photos of her with her dress and shawl.
But mostly - she'll bunch it up and wear it as shown above.
Young cute girls - they can get away with so much, can't they?

Pattern:  laminaria
With mods per:  Little Green Dragon (deets on Rav)
Yarn:  Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Needle:  US6 / 4.00 mm
Time Frame:  March 12 - 31, 2013
