Design Wall Monday

Well, we just got back from a month long trip visiting my in-laws on Saturday night. By last night, most of the laundry was done (but not folded), all of the suitcases were unpacked, a birthday cake was made and decorations were put up for Z.'s 9th birthday yesterday and I made a slight dent in the more than 25 pages of emails that had piled up in my inbox.

I didn't have any quilting projects ready to go so that I could take them with me but never fear. I brought several skeins of yarn to get started on a community service projects my friends and I are working on for Warm Up America. I crocheted 16 7"x9" "squares" last month. I'm a novice crocheter so this was a good project and a great time to work on this. I also brought along some Buttercup yarn to work on a throw for myself. Unfortunately, 3 1/2 skeins into crocheting that I realized that it would be too wide and it was getting crooked so I unraveled it to start again when I get a chance.

As soon as I get a chance, I'm going to do a few posts on our trip to Iran. For now, I'll leave you with a picture of my kids at their last horseback riding lesson there.
