Busy Late Summer

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

After a nice, slow-paced summer with short trips here and there, lots of family and friends time, and finally some hot summer weather, my soul had a chance to refuel and the batteries were recharged to tackle the fast approaching back-to-school madness…

It was the silence before the storm…

Incredible summer sunsets

And madness it was!

Crazy summer weather: thunder, rain, sunshine, and rainbows all at once

Both my boys started with new schools (we did the Open Enrollment Process to get them into a school within biking distance – but the kids didn’t end up at the same school – oh, boy!), tons of paper came home, lots of meeting dates suddenly filled our calendar, my DH out of town, a software project deadline got moved up, soccer coaching sessions and practices, and lots of knit, crochet, and crafting submission deadlines just around the corner – it was quite the chaos…

Now it’s just a few weeks later and it seems like a lifetime! Somehow I’ve managed to keep all the balls up in the air, deadlines were met, kids are happy at their new schools, they’ve made new friends, design ideas are backing up in my notebook… – now I just need to find a few fairies to do their magic and whip the house in order so that I can sneak in a few minutes of crafting… 🙂

Besides on-going design projects, I’ve promised some Ravelers to write up the pattern for the “Boy Plane Vest“, “Boy Spider Vest” as well as the “Tulip Cable Hand Warmers” in my Ravelry projects. I better hurry up before the proper season for these knitting projects is over…
