 Well my big project is finally finished and I can finally share it as my friend has had her baby shower.  Purple is her favorite color so I chose purple before I learned that the baby's room will be pink and turquoise.  Oh well.  This blanket definitely has a "wow" factor and would be good for an advancing beginner.  And it will give you good practice on bobbles.

Busy Summer




I have not disappeared.  Summer has just been flying by.  I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 10 months.  I had worked on a gift that I can share after this weekend.  Yay!  The multi-colored blanket is something I am using to use up some old acrylic.  I work on it here and there.  I have other adventures I hope to catch up and document in this blog.  We have been enjoying the garden.  Lots of squash and tomatoes.  We put everything in one raised bed and we learned that next year the tomatoes will have their own and their squash/zucchini will have their own.  All I can tell you is that garden fresh salsa is amazing.

I have been enjoying summer with the little one.  She is ten months.  Can you believe it?

Weekending: Parc Safari










































Hubby and I originally thought Polish Fest was last weekend but it turns out it was next weekend.  The U.S. to Canadian currency exchange rate is really good right now so we decided to take an impromptu trip to Parc Safari which is right over the border in Hemingsford, Quebec.

The place was amazing.  Much better then any zoo I have ever been to. You drive your car through the safari and animals come up to the car and you can feed them.  Hubby and I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time.  There also a zoo portion.  We went under the guise that we were going to Little Miss but she slept through most of it.  We plan to do this every summer so maybe next year she will be into it.  I highly recommend it to anyone with kids.

After the zoo, we stopped at a cidery and a winery.  The ice wines at both places were amazing.  I could have spent a lot of money there.

I did work on some crocheting but it's a gift so I can't say anything.
