Alaskan Crafts (and along the way)

Having 2 weeks to travel and a week trapped in a hotel I've had some extra time to craft. My options are limited (I can't sew or paint or bake) but of course I can knit, crochet and stitch. So far 2 crocheted hats, a cowl, 3 knitted hats and an embroidered Laurel (soon to be new Christmas stockings I think).

Hopefully we'll be in the new house tomorrow...I'm ready to have a kitchen and a sewing machine back. Plus my hubby bought me new tools before we left (compresser, nailer and compound miter saw)so I can't wait to get started on some wood projects!!! So far I want to make a bed frame for us, a bed frame for Luke, a locker system for our mudroom and seating in our kitchen. (just a few little things...)

Cross Country We Go

We are on day six of our thirteen day journey to our new home. Today we drove from Flagstaff to Las Vegas. Everywhere we've been for the past few days we are surrounded by beautiful mountains. Last night we camped in Sunset Crater National Park and got hit by one heck of a storm in the middle of the night. The kind that keeps you up all night and makes you wonder what you should do. (stay or make a run for it) We stayed, we survived. It was also our first truly chilly night, and we realized we aren't prepared for chilly just yet. Thankfully the temperature in Las Vegas was 95 today and the pool was just right. Here are some back logged pics...

Day 1: New Orleans

We ate alligator, went to a Voo Doo shop (and bought mom some skeleton earrings), took a horse carriage ride, walked from Bourbon Street to Jackson Square and back. (and I crocheted a hat for Laurel on the way to New Orleans)
