Crap I'm Doing

I feel like I should really be posting more, and as much as I hate to say it, I've just been really busy.

Lame excuse, I know.

Really, though, I have been busy. Work is crazy, but in a good way. I love my job.

Home is crazy, but all in a good way.

Sean just finished up his last semester at LDSBC, and will be starting at the U on May 16th. He has about 43 semester hours left to get his Bachelors degree, so about 3 semesters, which is like crazy fast.

I've been going through a creative phase lately, and have taken to doing various projects of no importance. I did refashion a couple of pairs of jeans from boot cut to skinny, which is super easy to do, and makes me feel like I got a new pair of jeans without spending a dime. Winning!

I have also started crocheting, which I learned for Activity Days, and I really love it. Maggie has taken to it as well, and has made lots of projects. I started a baby blanket, but now that I look at it, it sort of starts to shrink toward one end, so I need to revisit that situation.

We made some cute skirts with pockets for my nieces. Maggie also got one, and Gretta and Emma each have one coming. I also made some cute ties for my nephews, and they should be getting them soon. Emma has become quite the little seamstress.

Reading this post makes me sound like I'm living in Walnut Creek or something, but really, it's just a phase. I get this way. Soon it will be gone. Such is life.

I'll get some pics posted soon enough so you can all see the crap I've made, because I know how interesting that can be.

I want to make some interesting crap. You should have a night. Food which we bring, chating, we can bring this too, and you teaching us to make something.

yay for being busy in such productive ways.
Enlighten me on the Walnut Creek comment. I used to live sort of near there. What am I missing?

As I was reading, I was hoping you would post pictures. I would love to see the skirts! At least you are busy and seem to be keeping sane!

Do post pics. I'm always up for a new crocheting project.

And baby blankets - for me, I have to count every stitch in every row.

Which is why I don't make too many!!
