December 28th ..No Snow!

Here in New England we usually have snow by's very rare we don't!  We didn't have snow for Christmas...haven't made snow angels yet...we are saying goodbye to 2011 without I sad...NOT!  In this area since weathermen started keeping track of weather..and recording it...going back hundred years..this is one of the three rarest so far where we have had trace of snow for December..YAY!  It meant I could walk better, drive somewhat when I could...and wanted..and most of all not clean sidewalks...or the that is my rant about snow...this post might come back to bite me in the butt...but one time and one time only I am writing off topic from quilting, sewing, knitting, cooking.  I am thrilled we have not had snow

Camp Loopy

I have been camping along with others at Camp Loopy! Yes I love smores...campfires...and girl talk...I am having a blast with my Camp Loopy Project! Started with Daybreak..yes- bought the pattern and yarn..but was not happy with the colors..frogged back a pattern I was working on prior to start of camp due to errors...and on June my Scalloped Malabrigo Book 3 .. The Shawl is on the cover! So happy to be camping in Cabin 5 with everyone who is similar to me -making up my mind..just hard to do sometimes! The shawl is half way done...I am using Malabrigo silky merino..pradera ~a color that reminds me of the ocean..mixed with sun and it...and will blend it in with a green/blue it will be a nice mix I think!
I also have been taking knitting classes at my local yarn shop and loving it! Having fun with a great group of girls! We are knitting everything from sweaters, socks, wraps, shawls, socks, to funky scarves! Summer time classes will be cut back as vacation time is upon us..that's ok...I am a very slow learner so for me it gives me time to catch up! I have 2 pairs of socks finished..well sort of..just toes need to be sewn up..will start on my third pair! 2 Scarves are in the works...Plus I will have some medical procedures so time off is ok with me!
On the quilting aspect of the things..I have some things cut...will get back to sewing soon...had a lot of fun at my local quilt shop this winter...we participated in the Jo Morton Club..I loved it! I do have to finish up those projects!
Happy Summer everyone!
