Sorry I have been such a slacker about posting here.  I think about it a lot, but never do it.  The last month has been pretty much the same old thing.  I have upped my yoga to four days a week and am really seeing the results.  I am now down over 30 pounds!  35 is halfway to my goal weight, so I am getting close to the halfway mark.  

Patrick and I just had a nice weekend.  Our 10th anniversary was on Friday, so he took the day off work and we had a great long weekend together.  Friday night we went to see "I Love You, Man," which was very funny.  We also bought some beautiful filet mignons which Patrick grilled on Saturday night.  Saffy got a couple of pieces since it was her 1st birthday.  Today we watched some DVDs before Patrick left to go back to Maine.  It was a great weekend and I was very sad to see him leave.

In crafty news, I just finished up a swap on  It was a scavenger hunt swap.  We had eight categories and had to come up with an item for our partner for each category.  It was a yarn-based swap, so at least five of the items had to be yarn related.  Here's what I sent my partner:

Something Local is Reclaimed Cashmere from a local spinner.
Ellie's Reclaimed Cashmere

Something Purple is a neckwarmer and a pair of fingerless mittens.
Neck Warmer
Fingerless gloves

Something Recycled is a pouch made out of recycled grocery bags.  It took me almost a month!
Plastic Bag pouch

Something Hard is sock yarn and sock needles since my partner thought knitting socks was really hard to do.
Noro and Needles

Something Funny is a fun fur pattern book.

Something related to the letter "M" is stitch markers.

Something dotted is some notecards.
Set of six notecards

And finally, Sender's Choice is a spring-y necklace that I made for my partner.
Rose Quartz necklace

I'll post what I received in the swap in my next post.  I believe that I really lucked out in this swap as both of us were extremely happy with everything we received.
