Work, Milestones and Dads

Father’s Day weekend is a busy one! In fact, the month of June itself has been a whirlwind of activity. Almost so much it made my head spin!

On June 9th, my son graduated from 8th grade, and he will enter high school in the fall. On the 16th, our family went to the Lyric Opera House to watch our daughter walk the stage to accept her high school diploma. Earlier in the week, I drove her down to Bloomington-Normal to attend a 2-day orientation for college. It’s been a year of many milestones, many ups, and downs – a rollercoaster ride of events, emotions and memories.

Many wonderful things are coming your way!

Taking a moment from cutting, sewing and serging new fabric.

New knitting patterns, new home decor, new garments, and a new website. Keep your eyes open people. Follow me on Instagram (@lsslusciousknits) or visit my Facebook Page (LSSLusciousKnits). I’m also on Pinterest (LSS Lusciousknits) and Twitter (@lilbee68).

Yesterday, I spent most of the day cutting fabric, ice-dyeing new garments, finishing a knit hat, and thinking of new ideas for blog posts. Today will be more of the same. I’m also in the process of revamping my website – so you don’t have to look at silly ads all the time!

Also being Father’s Day, I’m thankful. Thankful for my own dad, who will be 86 years old next week. I’m thankful for my husband, who is also a wonderful dad. I’m thankful for all the dads like him – who love their children unconditionally, make their children laugh, teach them what they know, let them grow at their own pace, attend their rites of passage, wipe their children’s tears, protect them from danger, and know when to let their children go. Happy Fathers Day to all the loving dads out there!

Me and Dad.
