Fair, Glasses, HDT, and still settling in...

So, with a title like that, I shouldn't have to say to much, right?

I entered Livi's Doily in the local fair.  It won a blue 1st place ribbon!
The doily is not finished yet, but I am most certainly taking a bit of a break from it. 

I also entered this hair clip.  It's an abbreviated version of the flower in Mary Konior's Tatting with Visual Patterns.
This won a 2nd place ribbon. :o)

It looks like I passed my bad vision genes down to Livi.  I finally got around to getting her eyes checked and sure enough she needed glasses. 

She rocks them, don't you think?

I got a new colorway dyed up.  I tend to shy away from the warmer colors, such as red and orange.  I don't usually feel as confident with them.  Anticipation for Fall put me in a mood for rich warm colors though.

At first, I thought it would be a nice leaf color, but I decided it would make a nice floral color as well. :o)

And as the title suggests, we are still attempting to settle in around here.  I find it difficult to find opportunities to get on the computer.  We have a plethora of laptop computers but I do my best work on a desktop.  I'm sure it will all work out eventually!
