Oh...it's Monday

Well, yesterday was Mother's Day and it was a fairly relaxing day, which was good because the whole previous week was certainly not! The car accident on Tuesday pretty much just wrecked my whole week in having to deal with insurance, trying to get a rental car, and everything that goes along with it.

However, I did take time yesterday to wrap up my afghan. I think there might be a few stray ends that need to be woven in, but it's basically finished. The pictures show it in pieces, then the finished product. I'm pretty happy with it, as it is the first pieced project I have ever done. My mom laughed when she saw I was working granny squares. She used to make granny square stuff all the time. In fact, my fifth-grade picture was taken in a granny-square vest made of oranges browns and white. Very 70s. I am having a lot of fun with the idea of piecing, and looking forward to making more! In fact, I even ordered a used book from half.com that is all about granny squares and has a bunch of projects (including a couple of really ugly skirts) that was printed in the 70s. Truly retro.



Now that one project is done I think it must be time to start another...

Yikes!




Thank heaven for airbags! I was on my way to work this morning and wham! as I was driving through an intersection (where I had the right of way) a car pulled out in front of me to make a turn. She didn't make it and neither did I. Unfortunately, neither did our cars. But thankfully nobody was hurt. My poor car. I love my bug!

Here I go again...





Okay, so my sister tells me I need to get better at posting regularly and put some pictures of my crochet on as well. I will try to get better at posting, and have some pictures to upload later of an afghan that I am in the process of piecing. I have finished the squares and am stitching them together. Then I will get the border on and have it ready to take to my crochet guild meeting in a couple of weeks. I will post a picture of it when it is finished also.

Life is busy and the art museum has lots happening. We had the major opening for the late spring/summer show a couple weeks ago. And I was in Dodge City this weekend for a communicators conference. Lucky for us we missed out on the severe weather that ran through the central part of the state. However, we had a harder time getting home since we couldn't go back through Greensburg. That is a disaster, and I can't imagine what it must be like for those people who have lost everything.

Okay, so I have posted some pictures that make me happy. Most of the pictures on this blog are rather inane, but I like them. And I like pictures that have a happy feeling about them.
