I have been knitting, but my latest project was a sweater and that does take some time.  So here it is:

This is my "I'm so glad it's 90+ degrees and I am taking photos in a 100% wool sweater" smile.  I think I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this one as soon as winter hits. 

Since I was already sweating, why not put on some wool socks too.

I finished these two months ago, but kept on putting off taking my picture out in the heat.  So much for that.

And since my niece is now almost 6 months old, she was due for another knitted item from her aunt. 

I didn't realize at the time that the flower on her dress was going to come out that big.  I debated sewing it to the top, but I really thought it needed some color.  And the massive flower on her head was not my doing.  Macy can thank Mimi for that one.  She looks adorable in anything though.  My dad was a little disturbed that she was wearing a halter.  Baby's can wear halters and it's okay, right?

Sound of Music | Central Station Antwerp (Belgium)


Most people who know me well know that one of my favorite movies of all time is The Sound of Music. Love Julie Andrews, love the music, love it! Well, I just have to share this video that my sister-in-law Lisa sent to me from YouTube. Even if you aren't fond of the movie or the song, watch it all the way through. You won't be dissapointed!

Here's a little info on it:

This video was made in the Antwerp , Belgium Central (Train) Station on the 23rd of March 2009.
With no warning to the passengers passing through the station,
at 08:00 am a recording of Julie Andrews singing 'Do, Re, Mi' begins to play on the public address system.”
As the bemused passengers watch in amazement, some 200 dancers begin to appear from the crowd and station entrances. They created this amazing stunt with just two rehearsals!
