Maybe he can take over for a while...

The weeks seem to be whizzing past at high velocity
with not much time for
crafty endeavors...

But I have had time to

"clicky click" 

a few happy snaps

to share with you all...

This first one says...



"My dears, I have missed you all.
please come for a visual tour of my new workplace"

"Would you like to read some books with me"


"maybe wandering around the gallery is more your thing?"

Bench Monday


"I know, you just want to sit and relax,
how about you find a spot next to me"

and after a day working and taking in the scenic gardens...

I come home


to
little "Lollie"


patiently waiting...

So while I have been busy
learning new skills and everything arty...

The tradition of crocheting is still alive and well at home


This is my sons handy work...


I am soooooooo proud...

Maybe he can take over for a while?...


Edit: I know this looks all a tad glam...
but in all reality I have dishes piled high,
10 loads of washing and folding, and I cant for the life of me
think of what to cook for dinner 90 % of the time...
I spend most of my time picking up, cleaning up and tidying up...
only to realize that it seriously doesn't make a dent in the chaos
that is my life...

This is why I have a blog...it is a place to escape to once in a while
and dream...

What a lovely post. I enjoyed your workplace, your home looks so pretty and Lollie is just too cute for words. How wonderful that your son is interested in crochet - he did a great job on the scarf. xoxox

I know exactly how you feel. Blogging and knitting help to keep me at least partly sane. Have a good day!

Love to visit your blog Michelle! Nice to see your son sharing your interests as well! He did a great job on the scarf he made. Love your scarf too, that would be a great pattern to share. It goes very well with what you had on my friend. Very pretty!!! I definitely can relate to having no fun hooky time and the demands of life's daily rituals. All the best dear and hope to see you again soon! :)

Hello,
It's so fun to have friends in blogland that you can relate to...loved reading your post. Thanks for sharing <3

Ah Michelle, reality is so boring sometimes - stick with blogging fantasy!

I think it would be *super* for your son to write up a few guest blogging spots about how he worked up his scarf. And, of course, if Lollie wanted to guest-paw an entry or two, that would be ok. :)
