Quick Post

Another week gone by with lots of off blog activities but I do have a few things to share today.  I finished another ruffle scarf this week in blues to toss on with my jean jacket to jazz things up a bit. Now I will start to resist the ruffle yarns and move onto some of the other yarns in my stash.
The 8th block for Quilty Stitches (button on my sidebar for more information) is also done which means that I am caught up. I have got to make a granny square quilt one day but the cross stitched version will have to do for now.
We are heading back to Fargo, ND today for our second weekend in a row. Last Saturday our daughter ran her 2nd half marathon and my husband ran it along with her.  She finished 15 minutes ahead of her 1st one and was thrilled. This weekend we are going to watch a college track meet. My husband and I met at NDSU as runners and now one of his high school track graduates runs on the team. In between I'll do some shopping for our son's graduation next weekend. It is a most busy May!

I love this picture of Elsa out on our screen porch showing off her crazy tail in the sunlight.
Warm sunny days like this are still rare around here. Some afternoons I let Elsa and Tucker out there anyway and then they come scurrying back in. It looks like spring is due to arrive next week - fingers crossed!


  1. I've made that same scarf out of the same blue yarn and it does look great with jeans. Love those colors.

    Graduation is a big milestone, so relax and enjoy. I'm pretty impressed that your husband and daughter ran a half marathon together. My oldest has done marathons and triathlons before her knees gave out. She ran cross country in college. My youngest has done a half marathon. Both did track and basketball in HS, so I've sat through a lot of track meets soaking up the sun (or rain).

  2. Love the scarf. I keep admiring them and the yarn, but haven't taken the plunge to make one. Good luck with graduation. I'll be celebrating mine on Saturday with the ceremony and party. It's a bit overwhelming planning it all, but in the end I know it will turn out. Enjoy your weekend away and the shopping in Fargo. We've been there shopping and loved it.

  3. Do you really think that Spring will be here next week???? I think I'll wait and see!!! LOL!!! The days/weeks go so quickly!!!!!!

  4. The scarf is lovely and i do like the shades of blue in it.
    Great work with the cross stitch.
    Love seeing the sun shining into your home and, yes, it is a great photo of a fluffy tail!

  5. Your scarf looks great and I'm enjoying watching your cross stitch grow :)

  6. Beautiful scarf, perfect for jeans. I've made a few ruffle scarves for gifts and so far, everyone has loved it.

    Cute furries!
