A red scarf and more

Disclaimer: The pictures in this post are a little fuzzy b/c my camera is broken and I'm trying to make due with my iphone.
In 3 days, I created this scarf from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. It's called the Smock-a-Ruche. This is for the Liz Logelin Foundation silent auction. I think this comes from Matt's blog: Life. Death. All in one day and then what happened. Basically Matt and Liz had a baby about the same day I had Ava. I was walking around the next day feeling great. Except for when Liz stood up to go see her baby in the nursery, she collapsed and died. I can't even imagine all that Matt has gone through and to tell the truth, I haven't met him. But one thing's for sure, he is an outstanding human being to be able to start a foundation in his wife's honor. I can't imagine life without Rich.
My friends have been requesting purses, so this weekend I cranked out a few of them. I even cut out a diaper bag and started a baby layette.

On a healthier note,
Also I made some healthier cinnamon muffins and bought teff flour. Apparently, it is a great flour that can be used to make Ethiopian flatbreads. Rich and I are working on eating tons more fresh produce and whole grains. He is challenging himself to eating only produce, some dairy and some grains. I'm challenging myself to 2 green smoothies minimal this week and exercising 3 days minimal.

More pictures of baby stuff later this week.
