My favorite irises have finally bloomed! I brought these home from the family farm many years ago, some that my mother-in-law grew in her yard. I think of her every time I see iris in bloom.

Continuing my purple theme is the finished hand towel for my bathroom. It’s perfect and I’ll probably make another one like it.

For now I’m back to working on the denim blue dishcloths. I have finished three and have five more to do to use up that particular yarn stash. The single skeins of cotton are softer than the coned cotton and much more enjoyable to knit with and I’ve got some left-over bits that I can combine for another project.

I took my sock project with me to the dentist office but I didn’t even have time to untangle the yarn before they called me back to fit my new night guard. I was in and out of there in less than ten minutes! Not bad.

It began raining while I was in town and, I swear…drivers lose their minds when it starts raining! I don’t understand it. It’s. Rain. And it wasn’t even a heavy rain, just a good, steady rain that will do some good and help cut down on the grass fires in our area. No storms. Just rain. Thank you, God! This makes seven inches of rain we’ve had in less than a month. We need it. Just, please, no more storms for a bit…

I stopped at Panera to pick up lunch for the two of us. We like their Chipotle Avocado Chicken Melt sandwiches. Yum! It’s been awhile since we had those and we ended up splitting one sandwich and saving the other one for later. I’m going to start a pot of soup tomorrow. I decided on Black Bean Soup. I’m also going to make hamburger patties out of the ground beef I thawed and I’ve got two huge split chicken breasts that I can put in the oven on the convection setting and have steamed fresh carrots and broccoli to with them. So, dinners are taken care of through the weekend, and I can get back to my spinning and knitting.

Have a blessed Thursday afternoon and evening, ya’ll.

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
