cutest overalls
warm enough for popsicles play play play
Today started out like all the others - wake, morning chores then homeschooling. That is where normal ends. Kevin had the day off from work and he and I spent all our time looking at houses our realtor sent us on the computer. We ended up finding a fixer upper in our price range. Before we knew it we had plans to leave tomorrow on a whirlwind trip to Oregon to look at it and place an offer before it sold. Then late this evening our realtor called us back and said it needed too much work and our loan wouldn't be approved. I am slightly relieved that we don't have to leave all of the sudden now but also disappointed. Back to the drawing board. Something better will come our way.

can't wait to read this
On a different note: I am so excited to read this book! It has been sitting on my desk for about a month now (hence the old photo) and I have only been able to find the time to skim through it here and there but I can not wait to dive into it. Speaking of knitting and reading, I wanted to take a moment to say hello and welcome to all the new visitors from Yarn Along. It is so nice to have you here! I am thrilled Ginny sent you my way hope to see you each week for Crafting On. Okay, back to the homeschooling and house hunting madness!

Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.
I apologize but I don't actually have any photos of my current WIPs this week (It is becoming harder to find time to knit amidst the move) but I can share something that recently came off the needles. I had the pleasure of test knitting this sweet little hat for my friend Sophie and I shared the bottom image of it on Instagram last week. Well, Sophie *just* released the pattern so I thought I would share it over here on the blog for crafting on. It is absolutely adorable, isn't it?! I think I foresee more of them in my future. You can find it here. 
An update on Baby F - I am happy to say he is on the road to recovery! He is still clingy and not quite himself but he is feeling a lot better. His fever is gone and now he just has a runny nose. Thank you for all of your thoughts and prayers for him!

p.s. - I should add my photos are before the hat was blocked so the pixie point isn't quite as perfect as it should be.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
