I'm back from vacation!


Thanks to Sharon from Mana Moon, I figured out my picture upload problem. Really simple to fix, but I won't have been able to fix it myself---so thanks again Sharon.

We spent an entire week on St. George Island, Florida in a beach front beach house. It was beautiful---the house, the beach, the ocean, and a really good time was had by all! I was able to get in a few creative days making some beaded items for Christmas gifts---I'll post them later and I'm working on a pair of socks for my husband using the magic loop. It's super easy and a lot of fun. Usually a pair of socks takes 4 needles all in use at once, but with the magic loop, you only need one ;-) I was hoping to finish one sock while I was there, but only got about this far. When you had an ocean view and the kids playing in the sand, it was hard to keep focused on a sock. More to come soon.......

Oh it sounds like you had a WONDERFUL time and look at that sand and that gorgeous blue water!!

The socks are SO fabulous - oh how I'd love to be able to make socks for us - that would just be too cool!! I can't blame you a bit for being distracted though, wow!
