Well it’s been a productive week. My biggest accomplishment being that I finished making (designing) Olivia’s Chocolate Milk Hoodigan yesterday, which, in case you missed it, you can read in detail about HERE. I am still extremely (and perhaps overly) enthusiastic about it! I’m still giving myself a huge pat on the shoulder about that! 🙂 Also, I am pleased that this sweater has received so much positive attention. I included a link to my post about it on my personal Facebook page and I am actually surprised at how many people have “liked” it, or even commented on it. My posts on Facebook usually don’t grab so much attention! I think many people visited the blog to find a pattern for it, but of course, the pattern hasn’t been published, yet. While I was going to wait a bit to re-do the pattern, I am now thinking that I might just start working on it sooner rather than later. I do have a couple of other WIP’s on the go, but nothing overly important.
Last Tuesday I put together a “Lightweight Shawl & Wrap” Pattern Round-up, which you can check out by clicking HERE. Although it was warm here in Albuquerque for a few days this past week, more northerly (and cold) areas will be warming up very soon too. A nice shawl or wrap will be, in my opinion, a welcomed change from the bundles and layers worn for the past few months!
My husband’s birthday was last Sunday, which I did write about in last week’s “Weekly Update”, but that was BEFORE we ate cake, lol. The cake was absolutely delicious and hurt my extra-sensitive teeth so much! But was well worth it 🙂 If you missed that post, and would like to drool over a photo of cake, you can see it here 😛
Mid-week we did went to see the tax lady and got that all out of the way (for another year anyhow). Olivia absolutely loves riding the bus. I can’t keep her sitting down; she just HAS to look out the window (and talk and talk and talk). She’s a very social child and everyone adores her ❤ In a few more days she’ll be doing it all again, as she has a dental check-up on Tuesday morning. However, that’s within walking distance, so if the weather is nice we might just skip the bus altogether.
Newsletter Update- Ah, that newsletter…it’s going nowhere, still, lol. My intentions are good though! Like I said in last week’s update, I need to come up with content. While I figure that all out, I’ll still be accepting sign-ups, of course.
Well, I hope I didn’t bore you too much with this week’s update, lol. I must get going now and figure out what I’m going to do with the rest of the day. Lazy Sunday. Probably Crochet 🙂 ❤
Enjoy what remains of your weekend!
Until next time,
