Back Home

Thank you, everyone, for your thoughts and well wishes. I'm doing okay and my family is as well. The services were nice and it was good to see some family I hadn't seen in a few years.
I flew home this morning, took a nice long nap and then met up with some friends at the pub.
Tomorrow my dear sweet beautiful lovely fantabulous cousin Erin is moving back to Sacramento so I'm looking forward to that. Oh, and her husband Jeremy is moving with her. I guess thats okay.
I'm just kidding, I'm very glad that theyre both moving here and Jeremy knows that harassing him is one of my favorite hobbies. He is the closest thing I have to a brother-in-law after all.

Now, knitting projects. I finished the first felted purse I was working on about 2 weeks ago - just with all thats been going on I haven't sewn in the handles yet. So far I really like how it's turned out and I think my mom will as well - did I ever mention that it's for her?
Now I'm working on a crib blanket for a friend who has a niece on the way. I've already had to start the thing 4 times. I'm hoping to not screw it up yet again and be able to finish it within a week or so.

While in Oregon I was able to play with photo shop a little bit. For the little program booklet thing handed out at the viewing and services my grandpa wanted to put a photo on the back of my grandma and a photo of her garden. She loved to garden and could grow some beautiful irises and dahliahs. I found a GREAT photo of her taken at a casino back in the early 60's (she also enjoyed the nickle slots) and a photo of her garden, not in its glory, but still nice. After stumbling through some knock off version of photo shop that my grandpa had on his computer but had no clue of how to use I was able to come up with this:

I know that I'm biased, but I think she looks a bit like Jackie O. in this photo.

She *does* look sorta like Jackie O. I wish you had a picture of her irises -- I love irises, they're my favorite flower.
