Finally a girl

I'm knitting a little dress......for my grand baby! Yes, it's true.  Cameron and Jenna are having a little girl in July.  It is very exciting for everyone because we haven't had a little girl in our family for years and years! Now the timing could be better as Cameron and Jenna are just 24...and he has one more year of college left...but Jenna if finished university and working and they have a reasonably priced apartment so I think it will all work out.  They are older than I was when I had Cameron.....but doesn't it always feel like your kids are younger than you were at the same age? It took me a while to get my head around this whole grandmother thing I will admit....but as the time gets closer to meet little Aubrey Eleanor, Scott and I are getting quite excited.  Now a question.....should I be Grammie, Nana, Oma? Any other suggestions?

Hello again

Starting 2015 with a long overdue post.  Last fall I returned to school part-time so along with operating my pottery business there wasn't much time for blogging.  
We said goodbye to our beautiful Calvin, he gave us so much love for the 11 years we had him, really the most wonderful dog you could ask for.  
We discovered he had cancer in August and by the end of September he was suffering so we made the heartbreaking decision to have him put to sleep, we miss him so much.

Fall was spent mostly working in my studio getting ready for Fall orders and sales.

But there was always time for knitting.

We celebrated Christmas with our family Yankee Swap party...this years theme was plaid in case it is not apparent.

After saying we were not getting another dog we realized that our house, although it has been free of dog hair for 4 months, is lonely feeling and not nearly as much fun without a dog in it so we will be bringing home this Golden Doodle puppy in February...wish us luck.
