Back to Normal?

My husband and I are getting better with this empty nest thing.
We are starting to turn the dining room into a sitting room and now that the piano is out my living room looks much larger.

First born and hubbie are back form their trip to Boston. Check her blog for details.
Last Born had to take time off from all the new house work because she was getting sick.

So I am not only back to knitting but also back to my Chalk Dust Knitters/Crocheters Group.
At the meeting my good friend Pat pulled out this gift for me!
It is so cool and I have wanted to get one since I saw it online.

One side has a tape measure,cutter,crochet hook and a counter.

On the other side it has a compact.

It contains scissors, point protectors and stitch markers.

I am so blessed to have great friends.Thanks Pat!!!!!

In glove world I'm finishing this pair of basic gloves and will be taking time off from the basics to do more challenging gloves.
The frame was a gift First Born brought me from Boston.
I love William Morris designs. This is called Seaweed.

Here are another pair from a book I love Knitting New Mittens & Gloves by Robin Melanson.
I'm not using the right yarn but the design is so great I'm sure they are going to come out just fine.

No Time To Knit!

My first born and her husband moved into their first home a few months ago. She posted pictures of her beautiful home on her blog.
Here is their backyard with some new additions.

I just love this little guy!

My last born baby,her husband and Maggie(our dog)moved Thursday.
This move was a little different because when they were married they moved into the apartment I have upstairs. That apartment was my parents and when they past the girls used it.
My husband and I haven't been living alone since 1977.
She doesn't keep up with her
blog so here are some pics.

It is a beautiful house but just needed some love.

This picture shows the wall paper and rugs which are gone now.

Now the floors and walls are beautiful.

Before and after of the stove.

The Den had paneling and the sister pulled it down.

First Born found $5 when she was cleaning the lint trap.

My desk after the move.

I gave them my dining room set.

Now we start a new stage of life.
What will it bring!
