Where did the month go???

I can’t believe it’s the end of May already! We took our first trip away from home since my diagnosis. Unfortunately, it was to attend a memorial for the mother of an old friend. But we got to see a lot of people and share some laughs and memories. Before the trip, I made two shirts for my DH, finished adress for me, made a blouse for me, and did all but the hand work on a skirt and blouse set. It felt so good to be back at the sewing machine!

But that trip wiped me out. I spent the next week just laying around not doing much more than some crocheting. Thank heavens for reruns on TV and old movies.

I’m working on a sweater with some silk blend yarn that I snagged at a sale. This is the pattern:


The yarn is a burgundy tweed. I hope it will look good when it’s done! I plan to put it over a black tank top and wear it when we travel.

Yes, we’re travelling again! We’re headed to our favorite bookstore next month in Gold Beach, Oregon.

This place is fantastic! The top story is all used books and they usually have a rack or two of 25 cent books, so we really load up when we’re there.

Speaking of books…

That’s my next creative project! After planning for 7 years, I am finally going to write my first novel. It’s a murder mystery set in a college theatre department. If you’re interested, you can read more about it here:


I’ve written the first few pages and really like where it’s going so far…

Wish me luck!

Now go create something!
