Chris and I are one of the fortunate ones, we return to this date year, after year and celebrate our lives together. I couldn’t have asked for a more compatible person to live, love and literally bond with, and that bond relates to everything we are: our kids, our home, our jobs, and our separate interests. So, after all that sappiness, I say Happy Anniversary, to Us!

I think I said somewhere, that when I get stressed out I tend to spend money, and lots of money it seems! I have recently been working toward the year end audit at work, and that entailed employing an outside firm to get out tax provisions corrected, and a business valuation prepared, plus getting all the accounts reconciled for the three gentlemen coming in to do our internal audit. Did I tell you, that I work for a US based Japanese company and the auditors were all Japanese and spoke no English?? Well, I was really stressed, but lived through it all and we did fabulously (Thank – you, Karen for all your help!!) . I am so relieved!

I thought I would show you some of the yarn I purchased from Lisa’s and what I am hoping to do with it. I had originally intended to make Ella from this yarn, but after receiving it and just wowing about the color I think now I am going to make this instead: I have to check guage first of course, but I am hoping the yarn is stout enough to make the twisted stitches pop, and who knows? Maybe next week, I’ll have a swatch to show you!! (With safety in mind, I hope you won’t hold your breath!)
Oh, and just in case you are wondering, I am on the last repeat on DFS, #8, I am not entirely sure I will make it to the end, so I may stop half way and start the i-cord bind off. I would hate to run out of yarn!

The other item on the plate lately has been beads, and jewelry making, well, all I have to show for it is some stitch marker’s I have made for a friend (Hi, Diane!) I hope she likes them!

Till next week, then –
