Mommy look at the Beagle!

This is Bumpkin's Beagle- an immature eagle that was screeching in our yard most of the day. It is very cloudy- so no blue sky.
These are flowers from the wedding yesterday. Aren't they beautiful? I just love the orchids. The bride gave me these. I am so honored. Oh well she doesn't have a clue as to what she is getting herself into w/the band. BAND WIDOW!!!! Her husband is the drummer for one of DH's bands. Strange wedding, the bride is my age almost 40 and the groom is 52, neither of them have been married before.

Knitting: Finished the beaded star, will show pics later. When making the stars I have to be careful to remember to slip a stitch when I am supposed to. These ornaments that I am making this month will be nice to hang off of Christmas presents. NO MORE STARS!! I have other things to do like... put buttons on a dress that I made 10 yrs. ago. (Question is will it still fit?) Hope so as I really like the pattern and the material. Last night I went through my material stash- yikes, must not buy anymore material. The shelves are full. And I am off-loading some 1970 era stretch knit hot pink. While in that search mode only 2 UFO's appeared (and they were ones that I already knew about). Reorganized my yarn stash this am and found all my dpns (after stabbing my hand w/a pair of scissors that were lurking). Went through a box from the move and found odd stuff. Reorganized that box to only have mending. Lots there.

DH took Thing One and Thing Two to Anchorage for clothes shopping. I thought about going but decided that I didn't want to be in the same car for 3 hrs w/2 teenage boys and a toddler. So Bumpkins and I are cleaning instead. Vacuumed upstairs and down (still have the stairs to do), swept entryways, and cleaned one bathroom. Still have floors to mop and one bathroom to do. Completed 4 loads of laundry and 3 more to go. Want to bake something to- not sure what though.

Weather: Rainy (no internet this am).

I can't wait to see your stars. I've been making stars too, and I always seem to goof somewhere along the way. I think I am forgetting to pass the slipped stitch over.

I also made a tree today. It was fun.
