Capturing Moments

I took pictures of our 9 year old's bedroom to show the dresser I was easy since I just sanded and painted it, and it turned out great! I got the handles at a garage sale---there is a decorator here who has garage sales and when I see them I always go! She sometimes has some really great stuff! Here are pics of the black dresser in Alex's is the link to the blog entry where I showed the dresser being sanded down... It, too shows the finished one, but not in his room... yes, I got the dresser for $5 at Savers in Minneapolis when we lived there!!! Awesome, huh? I love to paint furniture and re-purpose stuff. Soon I will finish some chairs and I'll post them here to show you.......

Happy Easter, and.......

I hope everyone had a Happy Easter. We did, we just returned today from my parents' house in Albuquerque.
I am knitting another pair of socks, Tesserae sock pattern again, but this time around I understand it better and really see the mistakes I made on the first pair! lol.... anyways, it's with Yarntini "Designated Driver". I joined the malabrigo club on, too,through in December, and I got 7 wondrous skeins of malabrigo worsted in lettuce. Ooooo, it's wondrous,and I finally decided to knit a sweater called Sandrine. I couldn't decide, kept going back and forth, so I'm pretty sure this will be it. Meanwhile, I got the next 2 shipments!! ha ha ! some malabrigo lace in "cognac", and some malabrigo sock in "indecita"---it's awesomely I have to post so much stuff on ravelry, and I have been neglecting that.... I also started knitting a prayer shawl. I joined the prayer shawl ministry at our church and I am working on that as well.
This Easter weekend was fun with my parents and brother and we flew one of my sisters in from Michigan for a couple of weeks so I loved seeing her, too. My mom is having back surgery on Wednesday and my sister is taking a couple of weeks off work to help her and my dad.
So, happy wishes to all and Hallelujah, He is Risen!!!!
