What a whirlwind last couple of weeks! Since I had determined I was not going back to work my focus has been on spending time getting over to visit all the kids and grands. I have been dying to take Amtrak somewhere so booked my trip over to see Erica and grands. What wonderful trip it was!
The train ride was amazing and I am thoroughly sold on train travel!! The train wound all along the Columbia River! Breathtakingly beautiful! And to just sit back and knit along the way while enjoying the view…priceless! The staff was all so friendly. The observation car is just perfect for a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning as you partake of the amazing views! I am determined now that I am taking the train across the US someday!
The visit was amazing! Loved seeing the kids! Took them to the movies, walks, and even did park trips in the rain!
I was able to watch Trinity play a tennis match!
And I got to meet the newest Grandson, Sebastian!! Look at those eyelashes!!
Erica and I wasted no time and accomplished a great deal! She made some fabulous sock blanks for her etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/hypwoolyarns. I am so in love with these! Look at those iced dyed…totally pieces of art!!
I love the idea of knitting a sassy saying right into my socks!! Look how awesome these knit up!!
It was so fun being back in Walla Walla…oh how I miss it dearly! We hit a few of my favorite old haunts but sadly did not fit in any wine tasting….just too busy!
And I had to visit Stash the local quilt shop where I found some amazing goodies!
Look at these awesome goodies! Those Ghastlies!!
All too soon it was time to catch the train back home. Of course the hubby and doggies were so happy to have me home. But I always miss my girls and grands so dearly.
Once again there will be some changes. I know I said I was never going back into my career field but I accepted a position as Administrator for a new memory care community. I know, I know, never say never. I will start in April. But that means…..I have to sew like mad to get ahead on bags for Stitches Plus Purls! www.etsy.com/shop/stitchespluspurls It will be a challenge to keep up with sewing, dyeing, and working….but I am up to the challenge!
And now off to the sewing machine!
