As i have said before and will probably repeat in the future, i have the best job in the world and an awesome boss. let me set the mood. I was sitting in my office learning new tasks, as a person who has just started a job tends to do, when my boss popped into my office. I was a little surprised because i had seen her earlier just starting a meeting. Then this glow appeared around her and i swear i heard the angels singing "would you like to come see the new Amy Butler Home Decor line?"
this was obviously a rhetorical question because i immediately jumped up and followed her into the conference room. It is all a happy, bubbly blur. I am sure there was jumping and scream (in my head thank goodness and i am still employed, so i didn't take it and run either). It was beautiful. It was a perfect compliment to the Amy Butler Lotus Line. There was a lot of gray and the gray playing with blues and greens, like in lotus. But, true to form, her pinks and reds were just the right hue and the shades worked so well together. If i had to pick a style, i could not pick one. There was some Indian influence, Asian (Thai?) and maybe British colonial. It was great. The line is called Nigella and it will debut in July. I will be first in line.
On another note, i was not missing but rather on vacation last week. I had a great time. it was a pseudo- honeymoon/family vacation/cruise. Garrett, his parents, me and my parents, brother, his lovely girlfriend, Gretchen, sister and her boyfriend. It was pretty uneventful unless you count my sister arriving at the port just as the ship (with the rest of us) on board. But she caught up with us in Nassau. We went to Nassau, St. Thomas, San Juan, and Haiti. I love cruises but you eat way too much and you miss the little things. I was missing my brown house (which is coming along very well, with multi projects at various levels of complete), commercials (you have to watch RCTV with stupid royal caribbean commercials and CNN commercials were the weather for cities all over the world. image 2- 3 min of weather every 5 min of news), i missed umm not having cheese cake everywhere i looked. I missed the mall and side walks. I did love sitting out on the deck and listening to the waves and knitting.
I go alot of knitting done. I went through a whole ball for glee (over 100 yards), i made 3/4 of pair of hand warmers from Last Minute Knitted Gifts with 1 ball of KP SportShine, one Flora from Knitty with part of some Cascade 220 in Green tea (blocking). it was great!orhignsdolhtogtordsgnodjfrngodngotyontoynlbkfnjldfksgnjldfkjgldkjhlkjdfghlkjdhjdlfjhdlkfghj;ljjlkjidjgdslksjgtirtjdkfgj

One Pointy Kitty from Wee Wonderfuls made from Alexander Henry's pears and apples.
