Visit from my MIL and other updates

In Mother-in-law on February 18, 2008 at 11:57 am
No, she didn’t pop in unannounced over the weekend. She lives in Maine. It’s virtually impossible for her to pop in for a visit to her son’s house in Pennsylvania without making some advanced planning. It’s a good thing too; I don’t think I would have been good company yesterday. I was under the weather and still don’t feel 100% today.

Alright, I’m going to get to the point here. …. My MIL has been visiting my blog.

I’m tickled pink that she has been stopping by and sneaking a peak into my knitting WIPs and ramblings. Yet, all of a sudden, I have a desire to run around and clean everything. Except, this is a blog. There are no closets to shove things into. So, instead I have been fretting. I keep thinking that I said something awful about her son lately. I haven’t, have I?

OK. I went back and read a few posts and couldn’t find anything negative written about Dan. I feel better.

So, let me tell you what I am knitting now that the Ode to Quilting afghan is completed. I have started knitting the 3rd tie in my Christmas Tree Skirt. If you remember, I made myself a schedule to knit one tie each month until all 9 ties were finished and sewn together. Since one project is never enough, I am also knitting on my mystery project. Why is it a mystery? Well, I would like to submit it to a magazine once completed. Rules state that you can’t post pictures anywhere prior to the publication.

Other bits of good news, yesterday I received my prize from EtsyGreetings. They were running several contests as a way to celebrate their 1st blog-versary. I won the 7th contest.

I received 8 cards and a stack of business cards of other EtsyGreeting card sellers. My favorite card is the one in front, a Christmas card by BBesigns. The snowman is painted in water colors and then adhered to a stack of homemade papers.

Other contest news: I won’t know if I won the Lion Brand Yarn Slideshow Contest until February 27th. Thank you to everyone who stopped by! I truly appreciate it.

  1. hehehe..I totally understand your cleaning for your MIL!! My mom has yet to discover my blog!! And she knits….Stitches West is this weekend, and with a big ravelry booth…ummm….I think the cat might be out of the bag! Keeping my fingers crossed!!

  2. I can totally identify! My Dad has been reading my blog recently and I’ve felt SOOOOO self conscious! And I went through the paranoid ‘what have I said?’ stage too! Don’t worry – I’ve never noticed you saying anything but wonderfully complimentary things about your other half!

  3. Too funny – I actually like visitors because it’s the impetus to tidy up. Maine – what a great state. We spent a week in Bar Habor about 15 years ago and throughly enjoyed ourselves – ate lots of lobster and drank blueberry beer! Congratulations on your prize – they look like nice cards.

  4. Hear ya on the cleaning frenzy. How cool that your MIL is interested and comes to visit. Yea! that is good.

    Super duper win. The cards look great.

    Hope your mystery project is accepted for publication.
