O.K., so I haven't blogged in a while... I have a good excuse though. I went to Montana, then babygurl and I got sick the day before we came home. A fever and chills sure made the 16 hour car trip more fun.Ha Ha! Then she got an ear infection and I got a sinus infection. Yay more fun!
Any way here are some pics from the trip.

The Crazy mountain range
the Crazy mountain range. that's really it's name!

on the first day there we hiked up to a waterfall.

Old faithful
we went to yellowstone, and saw old faithful. It didn't go off til after dark so no eruption pics.

the lodge sign by our cabin.

the buffalo, (or buffafo as babygurl calls them) across the street from our cabin.

even more Montana on fire

Montana on fire. this is not clouds, people it's smoke!

I did have some time to work on my projects, I finished a little over 1/4th of the edgeing on the lantern blankie, and two mini socks.
I told T.H. I wanted a picture of me knitting in yellowstone, but we didn't get one.

Wool soup for dinner again.

wool soup!

Tuesday July 24th was natural dye day, I was going for a nice gold color. The one on the left is marigold, on the right is Osage orange in both pictures. The marigold is going to be a little more work though, if you look closely in the picture below there is a lot of petals in the wool. I should have put them in a mesh bag. Oops!

Wed. the 25th Babygurl and I went to Grandma & Grandpa's, then Up to Great Grandma & Grandpa's on the 29th. Although Babygurl learned how to get out of the crib, and we were pretty busy, we still had fun. I learned a bit of history too. Did you know in 1949 one night in a hotel room was only $4.35?

Anyway, here is Babygurl eating some corn on the cob that we picked, she LOVES corn now.:)

mmm, corn!

Then we gave the corncobs to the cows. I tried to get a picture of Babygurl climbing the fence but she was just going up and down one bar of it.

This is a project I started on Sunday, I found the flannel at Jo-Ann fabrics in Sioux Falls, SD. Tattoo Husband's apprentice & his wife are expecting a baby girl in October. She will need a cool flannel blankie. It's going to be a welcome to the world present.

I decided to do the picot edging a little more curvey on this blankie. So far I've only got one corner picoted. I did that while I was trying to get babygurl down for a nap on Monday. Now I know it takes an hour and a half (with some put the kid back in the crib breaks.) to crochet one corner of edging.

Someday we'll look back on this moment and plow into a parked car.
