Where I've Been

For a number of reasons--being really busy over the last few months, garden season about to hit, and the fact that I cannot seem to rest my injured arm while I'm here--I decided to "get away from it all" for a few days.  Since I was taking my computer & camera, I thought I'd be updating my blog while on the road--not realizing quite how "away from it all" I was getting.  I had picked an historic hotel that specifically said "no phones" and why that didn't translate into "probably means no internet either" for me is anyone's guess. 

BUT, even with all the driving I did get some quality crafting time in.  Mr. Flurry now has a body
and part of a hat
The neck of the old cotton sweater is at 2 1/2 inches of the 6 needed
and the mitten collection is progressing nicely:
I'll be making a run to the craft store to get some blue thread for the white mitten up at the top.  I'm thinking royal blue stitching around the outside will look quite sharp.  On the way out of town I stopped at a Joanns fabric store where I was delighted to find these
Snowflakes!!!!  I think they'll be quite cute on mittens.  There was a bit of a fabric incident while I was there, but I'm not quite ready to discuss that part yet........

I love the little snowflakes! And I see from your sidebar the cowl neck sweater is done too...woot!

Welcome back!

(I was gone over the weekend myself but having hot and cold running internet didn't make any difference...I didn't post during the trip either!)
