Okay, it's been a long, long time since I last wrote in here.

Truth be told, I haven't been too very inspired of late, by anything much. I go through these spells from time to time, but it hasn't lasted quite this long before.

I work in a lovely yarn shop here in Portland (Happy Knits) and recently started working (more or less) full time. There's plenty to be inspired by there ~ lots of lovely yarns, patterns and customers coming in with great projects. My fellow workers/manager/boss are all wonderful knitters and do lovely projects too! You'd think, what with all that and the fact that I have about 4 projects on the needles I'd be more inspired ~ AND, there's the best fabric store, ever, right up the street ~ Cool Cottons with wonderful fabrics.

Guess it's just one of those times where I just don't have 'IT' and just flow with it.

Today I'm going to the Northwest Quilt show here in Portland with my friend, Annie (who is a great knitter and quilter!) and hoping to find something to tip the scale and get me back on the creative track.

Oh and on other news ~ I've been going to the gym on a regular basis and even signed up for a trainer (have two more sessions with her) and feeling great in that area.

The weight loss has been slow but steady and my clothes are starting to fit again.

Also, want to say that life is really good. I have a wonderful son and daughter-in-law that live downstairs (I own a duplex), I have wonderful friends, a great job with people I really enjoy working with, 3 of the silliest kitties ever and good health.

I didn't want to seem like I'm complaining about anything. Mostly just stating fact of what's going on with me lately. I'm really grateful for the life I live.
