Happy Anniversary to Me... (I mean us)

31 years. Wow. I've been with him 10 years longer than I was without him.
That's incredible.
Not much knitting to report. Ok. Let's be honest. NO knitting to report. Oddly enough, I'm still interested in READING about knitting and patterns and so forth, I'm just not interested in doing it.
On the other hand, I made myself a dress. I tried to get a good photo of it, but in spite of the fact that it turned out great, it didn't photograph well so I decided to chuck that idea. Anyway, it's beige linen with little embroidered circles in the same color going all through it. I saw the bolt of fabric at JoAnn's when I wasn't even considering sewing myself a dress but it screamed... "Me". So I found a pattern that I liked and bit the bullet. This dress would be so perfect for so many occasions. It's dressy, but not too dressy. It would be the perfect dress to wear to a wedding of which I have two this summer. I set the zipper in pretty well for not doing it in 20 years. When I look at it, it doesn't look home-sewn. I don't think I'd know if I didn't know. It's beautiful actually.
Too bad it's two sizes too small.
Baby Clare should be arriving on the scene any day now. I thought she would be a nice anniversary gift, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen. HAVE TO GET THAT BLANKY DONE!!!!
