Father-in-law's Birthday

This is what we decided on as a birthday gift for my father-in-law. Happy Birthday!! :) It's a bath towel... I bought the towels, my Mom sewed them together, and a good friend of mine from work did the embroidery!

Beautiful cabinet...

I'm proud to post pictures of my most favorite Christmas present. This is the first large woodworking project that Stan has completed, and I think it's pretty awesome! I only wish that I had done a better job with the varnishing. I don't have much experience with that, so there's brush marks, drips, runs... (oh my!) But other than that, it's WONDERFUL!

Log Cabin Progress

Here's a picture of the progress on my log cabin afghan. It's coming along quite nicely, but it sure does slow down in a hurry! I'm working very hard to try to finish this one so I don't feel guilty starting on the Curve of Pursuit one!

Curve of Pursuit

My copy of the "Curve of Pursuit" afghan pattern arrived in the mail yesterday! I can't wait to get started on it. Of course, first I must finish the log cabin afghan... I don't want to have too many unfinished works! Here's a picture of what the afghan looks like:

I plan on making it with 3 different colors instead of two. Haven't decided what colors yet, but I'll get to that shortly, I'm sure.

My family...

I thought while I was putting stuff up here, I'd share a picture of my family... these are my boys :)

I've very proud of them and feel lucky to have them every single day.

Was that mushy enough for you? Sorry!! :)

Starting again...

I figure since everybody else seems to have their blog here I might do the same... my other one has gotten kind of left behind, mostly because it's sooooo slow. Anyways, glad you came to visit me here. I'm going to try to keep up with this one a little bit better than my old blog! I'll start posting soon about my family, the projects that I'm knitting, and whatever else comes to mind! In the meantime, the title... "Fixin' to..." When I moved to the South from Wisconsin 8 1/2 years ago now, I was always thinking that was a hilarious phrase. People saying "I'm fixin' to go to the store... yon't somethin'?" "I was just fixin' to mow the yard" I always wondered... it's not broke... why are they fixin'? Either way, there's lots of things that I'm always fixin' to do... knitting projects to start... letters and emails to write... blogs to post on... so I thought it would be an appropriate title.
