a slump?!?

I haven't been a very good blogger. Well, I really haven't been a very good knitter these past few weeks. I guess I've hit a knitting slump.

Of course, this slump has by no means affected my ability to enhance my yarn stash. I recently acquired some lovely cotton Flash and some silk yarn and books from Jaimi. (luckliy for me she's de-stashing.) I'm just waiting for the inspiration to knit up a summer sweater or tank.

My mum, will be celebrating her Birthday this weekend. Once again I'm preoccupied with party details. The head count is somewhere around seventy. I keep worrying about the food, the catering, the decorations and everything else that comes with planning a big party. Why does it always feel like I'm forgetting something? Well whatever it is, I hope I remember before Saturday.

At least I've finshed the Party favors...

a ball of yarn, a hook and some basic instructions for crochet...

Mum's a former Home-Ec teacher who is quite crafty and currently obsessed with all things crochet. My sister and I thought it would be nice to share that with all her guests.

What a great idea for favors!
My sisters and I just finished putting on an 85th party for my mother. My sister preapred favors of a small framed picture of Mom for each guest, three poses from candids (an oxymoron!) from different times in Mom's life.
The party went great but I felt really stressed on an off till the thing actually started!
You will be glad you did it I am sure, just as we are.

It's really a cute and very genious idea ! But if any guest does crochet during the party, will they want dance ?

What a WONDERFUL party favor Idea!! (Sticking it into the mental roladex!)

Don't forget to TAKE A DEEP BREATH and ENJOY THE PARTY!

I thru a joint 60th birthday party for my parents last year, and although stressful to plan from 4 states away...what a BLAST it WAS!
