Forever and a Day!

Greetings to those of you who still bother to check in on me now and then!
I apologize for being such a rotten blogger as of late.  There are no real excuses as to my absence- just life I guess.

I started a new teaching position in August and things have thankfully gone well :)  I have grades K-5 general music, 6th grade choir/general music, 7th/8th grade choir, and a 9-12 choir.  So, I'm busy, but it has been a manageable busy.  For that, I'm extremely thankful.

Unfortunately I have not done as much sewing, crafting as I would like. I did get a purse and table runner done for Christmas gifts but of course did not get pictures taken.

There are a group of ladies that meet every Thursday night in town to crochet/knit and are aptly called the "Knit-Wits". I don't make it every week, but when I do go, I work on an afghan I started in November of 2008 (if the date stamp was correct on my camera). Here's the last picture I have:

Almost sad that it has taken me 4 years to add approx. 18 rows! I didn't realize how wide I had made this afghan until I took this last spans the width of a queen size bed nicely.  No wonder it takes me forever to get one row done! I'd like to make it long enough so that it can tuck under the feet and chin - I'm 6'2", maybe in another 10 years I'll get it done :)

Well, thanks for stopping by, and please come again! (I'll try not to wait another 3 months to post anything).

Take Care! - Elizabeth

Gorgeous! Love the colors together. You're making me want to take up knitting or crocheting again, which I haven't done since high school!
