Taking a break, finally

I've been neglecting my blog lately. I've been super busy, but I finally have some time to relax. My poor bedspread has been ignored as well, but I was able to put in a few stitches last night and this morning, so it's moving along again, along with the box that I'm working on for the store. I still have miles to go on the bedspread, I've almost finished the first section (there's going to be at least 6 total, maybe 7 when it's done). And the new bed that it's being made for is coming on Tuesday, I'm so excited! I can't wait to see my new bed.
I'm also thrilled because one of my dearest friends is in town this weekend. I know he has to visit with his family, but I'm hoping there will be some time left over for me when he's done. Other than that, hubby and I are going to spend the rest of this weekend working on the spare room, getting it ready to be turned into a guest bedroom. So lots to do. Hopefully, next time it won't be so long between postings. But that is it for now. Time to go play "pirates" with Little Man.

Crochet across generations

I've had such a nice few days. Hubby's grandparents came into town mid-week last week. We've had such a nice visit. They're headed back to NJ today though. Grandma H does some wonderful crochet work and it was so nice to be able to talk to her about patterns and different yarns and techniques. And of course Little Man loved playing with his Great-Grandparents. And my grandparents should be here for a short visit in a few days. I'm SO looking forward to that. It'll be the first time that I've had them come to my home for a visit. Very exciting.
With all the visiting, I haven't gotten as much work done on my bedspread as I would've liked, but I have gotten some new pieces done for the shop. They should be ready to be photographed and posted in the next few days. I just want to make a few more so that I can bundle them some.
I did get to "meet" another wonderful artist through my GA street team the other day. She has some very nice prints in her store. Be sure to check it out.

Work has been as much fun as always. I had to pass up the opportunity for some extra shifts this week with all the family coming and going. I really felt bad that I wasn't able to help cover the shifts, but maybe next time. Well, I suppose I should get back to the housework. I want the place to look extra nice when my grandparents get here.
Have a great week everyone!
