Just a bit of my vacation

A view of a damed lake in the Black Forest where we went with MyGuy's parents.

A view from Col du Chat in Savoyen where MyGuy spent a fun time taking pictures of mountains including Mont Blanc.

And a couple of grapes photographed near our favorite weekend retreat, Bad Bellingen.

This is my finished tree, the first of my UFOs for the Cross Stitching Fingers. I turned out great and MyGuy kept insisting on me showing it to people. Actually I am pleased with it, but wonder what sort of frame would look good with it...

Saturday was Knitday

Bettina is showing of the photo from the bridal stole she knit for a dear friend. Stole and bride were beautiful!

This is Bettina's new WIP, a mystery shawl. Her jewels for this meeting were the blue beads in it.

Anouschka is studying Esther's Water socks that looked great.

Inspired by Esther's socks Betty decided to try something new and casts on Italian, Anouschka is assisting by keeping the yarn taut.

And here we have our gracious hostess, Esther. We did enjoy
visiting her in Switzerland! Esther, we will be back!

I got my knitting mojo back, at least a bit and am now ready to turn the heel on the melon colored Doedelsock I had going on Saturday.

Still no craft pictures and no vaction pictures

So I figured I'd show you what we did on the service day from work:

I am back, had a lovely time (and was sick on my 40th birthday). I finished my tree, didn't do much other crafting or reading, but enjoyed spending time with MyGuy.
