Mi Vida Loca

My crazy life. Things have been really wild and busy around here. A few weekends ago we went to Utah for our roommate Dave's little sister's wedding. It was a lovely ceremony and of course the bride was beautiful.

This is Katy and her father, George.

Everyone in Dave's family is so wonderful, I just adore them all. Do to some unfortunate circumstances, our weekend in Utah wound up being very stressful and we were forced to stay an extra day to resolve some issues. Dave's family was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the ordeal. We will be eternally grateful to them. Sorry about the vagueness here, but the details are private.

The following weekend we drove to California for Dave's Mom's wedding. Another lovely ceremony and both brides were lovely. Yes, I said both, it was a lesbian wedding. They have been together for about 18 years and they decided to take advantage of the new law in California and make it legal. I'm thrilled for them.

I apologize for the crappy quality of this picture. I took it on my cell phone. Thankfully, the trip to California was better than the one to Utah, no unexpected ordeals.

I have a couple of new projects started. One is a Seraphina for a dear friend who is having a really rough time right now. (It seems as though everyone is struggling right now, hopefully things improve soon.) I'm using Jo-Ann Sensations Rainbow Boucle in pink/white. I've lost count of how many times I've made this pattern, it's definately one of my favorites. The other project is a Plastic Bag Tote. It's made from "yarn" created by recycling plastic shopping bags. There's a link on the pattern page on how to cut the bags up and turn them into the "yarn". Dave and our friend, Terri, did all the work cutting up the bags and rolling the yarn into balls for me. I should have enough to make a few bags, I'm not sure yet how many though. I'll be giving one of them to Terri for helping me out. :)
