I'm entering the "MadMay2012" event on Ravelry. Yes, I've gotten a little stash of yarn but really, it's not a lot. So, I'll be knitting that down a bit.
Here's my MadMay2012 entry:

I'm planning on making this for a wedding in October out of Madelinetosh Carmine
Before the bolero, I will be making a vest and finishing some projects. This vest is by Wendy Bernard and published in "Custom Knits 2". I always need a little top to go over a cami or tank top but something not too hot. My thoughts are I'll add sleeves- little cap sleeves maybe.

On to the sewing.
My husband and I are attending 3 weddings this season (two in KC and 1 in SC) and I have a class reunion (I won't tell you how long it's been). I'm really looking forward to the wedding in SC. I've known this man for 12 years, amazing huh? He's such a wonderful person. Who knew he would find the love of his life in SC while he lived in KC? I'm so happy for him: words can not express my happiness. If I had a daughter, I'd want him to be with her, so respectful and caring, honestly a good man. I'm so glad I know him and can see him marry a wonderful woman... Sorry, back to the task at hand.
As many of you know, I quit getting Burda- difficult tracing, repeats galore- yack! But, I love their designs when they're fresh and new. The May issue has caught my attention. There has got to be a better way to trace these confusing sheets.

This dress looks really cute on the model. Maybe something with short sleeves. I dont' think it would work for a wedding though... so I digressed.
I'll be blogging more to show updates now. Took a little time off for surgery and starting my business. Now I'm back to full speed. Oh, gotta make some baby gifts too.
