Well hello there! It's been a while, hasn't it? Oh my...more than a month! Well, I think I've been busy???
Although I'm certain my busy is other people's lazy! :D Yes, quite certain!

July 6th was jj's and my 11th anniversary. (Is that proper grammar? I doubt it...) We didn't do anything special...we rarely do. But he told me he was super happy to have me...super. I love that man!
My parents came up for a stay at that same time. (Their 41st anniversary was on the 5th, we went to IKEA. lol) It was quite the visit. My dad (and jj) put in 2 new windows. One a replacement, and another a brand new window in my craft room! Very exciting! I wish that had motivated me to start working on the rest of it...but it hasn't.
During their stay I had another visitor!
Isn't he adorable? How can you not love a moth?! He's so fuzzy!
We recently took a trip up to Mt. Baker. Sadly the viewpoint was closed due to avalanches. It was a nice trip all the same. I got very sentimental about the days before the kids, when jj and I would camp up there. Those were fun times...times I hope to recreate with the kids soon.
I've also been crocheting quite a bit. I've been working on more hexagons. I think I'll make a cushion cover with some of them. I made this one recently, and it looks so lonely...
But anyway, I've been playing with other shapes too... It's so much fun!

I also made a bunting! I've been wanting to make one for some time now. I don't think I've seen a picture of one that I haven't liked! My camera's battery died, hence the absent picture...
And of course, I've been shopping. I supported my local economy recently, to my detriment. :) I do like to shop locally, but the fact is, it's expensive! My favored local shop is in Bellevue. It's in a hideous old building, but all the same, I imagine it costs a lot to be right downtown. I don't like paying for that...
I've also been plant shopping...I can't help myself! I'm not much of a spanish lavender gal...but this one was so sweet. And it's a nice contrast with my english lavenders. And the hydrangea I already had...
Lastly I'll show you my buttons... I don't remember how I came upon them in Etsy, but I did. I bought two bags, and it was so much fun going through them that I bought another two! I think I'm addicted!
Hopefully I'll post again soon. And hopefully I'll have something of interest to show you! :)
