Presents & Projects & Prints, Oh My!

Be prepared for probably the most photograph laden post yet.

I will start from the oldest and move to the present.

Ladies' Retreat in CA:

This verse was displayed on the landing in Star's house, it seemed to be her life verse.

This cutout was in the house before she moved in. It seems appropriate. There was also a moon cutout, and a few others. Her house had been an HGTV house, so they had done all sorts of foufy things to it.

Here is the statue outside of St. Michael's Cathedral I mentioned before.

This is the prayer of St. Michael.

This is in the floor of the narthex.

This is the baptismal font. I was struck with how beautiful it was. I don't believe I've ever seen one which depicts the baptism of Jesus before this one.

This altar was made, I think handmade, in the Phillipines and sent to St. Michael's. The stained glass behind the altar is another image of St. Michael casting the devil out of heaven.

This is the pulpit. I have a picture of the lectern, but I don't think it turned out very well. It is an eagle draped with a liturgical stole. If I can brighten it a little, I will post it later.

And here we all are after our long drive down Beach Blvd to meet some people for lunch. Please do not comment on my appearance unless it is to tell me how cute I am.

These are the books my not so secret pal sent me from my wishlist! I almost bought Junior Knits while we were down in California, but decided to wait a little bit. Boy, am I glad I did! Thank you Shannon!

This is a picture of our marine friend whose letter I posted some time ago, Ryan, with his girlfriend, Tamber, me and Rich. We were teaching salsa on Cinco de Mayo, and they were our only students at the restaurant! This is a much better picture of me than the previous one, don't you think?

Moving on to my knitting projects, here is a photo of the Fir Cone Scarf:

I finally finished the knitting on the Flower Basket Shawl!

This is it without the benefit of blocking.

This is the detail on the Flower Basket Shawl, again, not blocked.

Well, I finally came through with the photos. I'll see if I can't update my progress, reading and the other stuff in my sidebar soon.

Comments:
your shawl came out beautifully!
