UK Trip

In July, Teddy and I went on a trip to the UK. We had a wonderful time, visiting with family and friends, with a few daytrips here and there. Here's my big boy, right at the top of the London Eye, overlooking the Houses of Parliament. You can see Westminster Abbey, just behind Parliament. Did you know that the Abbey is 1,000 years old? I just LOVE London. Another day, we took a trip out to Legoland, near Windsor. It was perfect for this Lego crazy kid. Here's a pic for all you Harry Potter fans :0) We had a great day with my mom and her husband - it rained a wee bit, but only for a couple of short spurts. It kept us cool and no trip to England would be complete without it ;0)

Gratuitous kitty picture. This is Junior, the Tanns' kitten. She is the funniest thing alive and such a joy. I had forgotten how much fun these fur-babies are. She loved attacking our feet at night. Teddy spent all the time we were there, chasing her.

The reason for our trip was to attend my Dad's wedding. I made the bride and groom this pretty trippy blanket. Same 'design' as my Noro log cabin, it's made from Traditions yarn from JoAnn's (discontinued) for the squares and Debbie Stoller's Bamboo Ewe yarn for the borders.

Ooh those are the real colors? I though you had turned the pic black and white for a minute. Very cool!

I love that blanket! And the kitty is super-cute. (Teen is on a campaign to get a kitten, but he's going away to college next year. Guess who would get the kitten?)
