Just Checking In

Just thought I would check in with you all!  I have my new house all together now.  I will take some pictures soon and show you all where I am living.  I want to get some paint this weekend for my bedroom and bath.  It is just plain looking-cream and white and I need some color to liven the place up!  I have painted a little more.  I painted the feather below:



This was a really fun project.  It taught me how to "run" colors into other colors and then wait until the project dries completely.  Then I painted leaves, stems and dots in white on the feather.  Very different but beautiful! 

I have been knitting every night on the baby blanket for my niece, Devyn's little baby girl, Bradley.  She was born in the middle of January and I want to get it completed before she is too big for it!  Here is my progress so far:


My niece likes pink, white and gray together.  She should be happy with this!  I work on it while I'm watching TV.  The pattern isn't too hard.  I only have 1 row I had to take out because I must have knitted an extra stitch. 

I have been trying to keep myself busy.  I feel if I keep myself busy, I won't miss John as much.  Believe me some days that doesn't work at all.  Some days he is on my mind constantly.  I still talk to him while I am watching TV.  I think the dog thinks I am crazy chatting away about the show I am watching, etc.  Oh well, I could be crying my eyes out all the time so I think chatting away is better. 

I have been listening to alot of Audibles lately too.  Sometimes I'm tired of TV, so I just knit and listen to the book on Audible and get lost in the story!

Well my friends, I better get going but I thought I would just check in.  Hopefully I will start posting more regularly and have some pictures of my new house.

Take care my friends!

I love the feather painting, Sherri and can't wait to see pics of your new home.
Aren't audiobooks great to listen to while knitting? I do that often. Your niece will love the blanket. What a special gift!

I love your feather painting. I didn't know you moved. Did you sell your other house? Sending hugs.

You are so talented, Sherri. I’m so sorry for the pain you are going through. Sending you hugs from across the ocean.


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
