I'm home again. Instead of stopping en route the car drove straight home and by the time things were unpacked a bit it was 1:30 a.m. I'll be hanging on to that perfect vacation feeling as long as I can while still taking care of work.
What I can report is (as ALWAYS) I super dooper overpack the things I think I will do creatively. More than anything I read (beach time) and I did sketch/watercolor in my art journal. (Not that I don't have plenty to catch up on!) Knitting wise I didn't do too much, embroidery wise I only got the large "tree element" done----- and the only crochet I did was to make the hatband from locally procured yarn. Will I overpack for the next trip? Absolutely.
I missed the trip to the State Fair with knit group but can happily report back that Yo-El and Silvana both entered knitting items and won two blues and a purple! Silvana a blue ribbon in the sweater category for her gorgeous fair isle vest and Yo-El a blue in the shawl category and a purple for best in knitting for her lovely lace shawl. Definitely good stuff, congrats girls!
Back to work for me! Chin up and full steam ahead!
