Some finishes!

Yesterday at noon, me, my mother, my friend Rósa and my daughter Karítas went to a cabin in the countryside to meet even more stitching friends from my stitching group for a small get-a-way. It was so nice to get out of the city and unwind a little before yet another stressful week at work. We went to the same cabin that we visited in August and you can see my post about that here. This time it was colder off course, but just as nice, and off course the company was great. We usually try to have these weekends without our kids since it is a time to get away and recharge our batteries and relax. But since my mom decided to join us and none of the other wonderful ladies had anything against it, my little girl Karítas was allowed to join us also. She was a super nice baby the whole time and seemed to enjoy herself with all those talented ladies and liked to admire the stitching. She even got a private knitting lesson from my mom.

That was really funny. Have any of you tried to teach a three year old to knit? We had yarn ALL OVER the cabin! She just took the yarn and ran with it! LOL! But it made her very happy and it wasn’t a hard mess to clean up.

There is a great hot tub at the cabin and Karítas loves to go swimming so her and my mother went for a soak yesterday in the cold.

I had not one, but two finishes! I finally finished my series of Mini Cottages 1-4 by Michael Powell!

    Sounds like a lovely weekend! Adorable pics of Karitas…great finishes too!

  2. Glad to hear you were able to get away.

    Ahem. I just found *someone’s* 95% finished birthday gift in my craft room. I’m such an idiot sometimes. I can’t believe I forgot/lost it in there. (If I showed you a picture of the room, you would understand why!) I am going to add a few more things and call it your Birthday/Christmas present. I will let you know when I mail it. TTYS. -Han

    Sounds like a fantastic weekend. The picture of Karitas trying to knit brought back lots of good memories of me trying to teach James and then Sarah how to cross stitch. LOL

    Thanks.
