Is it July already?!

Oh…My…Goodness!  😛  That’s pretty much all I can say.  I’m flabbergasted, lol!

So much has been going on to keep us all very busy over here in my little corner of the world.  June has seen my daughter graduate both from high school and from her first 2 years of college, with a big celebration at the end. It has seen my youngest daughter complete her first year of at-home-online school (whew!).  It has seen my aunt and uncle through their 50th year of marriage, and my hubby and I through our 20th.  🙂

June has also seen us through a whole lot of loom knitting!  First, I found myself working on some adorable little booties for my nephew and his wife’s shower for their first baby girl, who is expected to arrive in July (oops!  That’s this month… I’d better get working on that matching hat!)

It also found us…I say us because my daughters actually got in on the fun for this one!… working on a total of eight projects in just seven days!  Can you believe it?  All the projects I have on my plate right now (at last count it was nine UFO’s!) and we’re able to team up and actually complete eight entire projects in just a week’s time (well, it was actually 2 each of 4 projects total).  Albeit, we did throw some very late nights in there to be able to meet the deadline, but all was accomplished and nothing was late. 🙂  We were working on some items for Provo Craft to be able to take on tour with them to show all the cool things you can create using the Knifty Knitter looms.  All in all, we made 2 table runners, 2 doggie sweaters, 2 pillows, and 2 cuddly sweet things.  I’m planning on sharing with you all about how I made the doggie sweaters, as it’s the Pooch Parka , and I think I can share some additional tid bits that may help you if you’re planning on creating it sometime in the near future.  As for the other items…I think I need to keep those quiet for now, as I think they’re going to end up in the bigger project that I’m working on.   So, sssssshhhhh! 😉  (btw: those booties and hat above will most likely make their way into the project as well, so stay tuned!)

But for now…I’d like to share with you our pride in my eldest daughter’s accomplishments.  I have put this little video collage together to celebrate Emily and the amazing girlie that she is.  I hope you enjoy and can feel the piece of happiness and pride in my heart that is stamped with her name. 🙂

    Bethany, that is quite an accomplishment. You should all be proud. There is a very small percentage that accomplish what she has already done. Two of my three did that also but there are very few who do. I didn’t home school but our state has a special program and school and they left at 16 to attend there and graduate high school and are automatically a junior in college. My oldest is like that. He is finishing a PhD degree right now. She will go far thanks to you and your husband supporting her and giving her a great education.
    Where does the time go??
    I can’t wait to see your new ‘endeavor’ with Provocraft. That was cool that the whole family became involved getting out the items needed. I have boys and so far my daughter in law only dabbles. She has made a hat and a few scarves so far. At least it is something.
    Congratulations Emily!
