Enjoying My Lap Throw

I finished this the first week of August and had planned to add a lace edging but decided to go ahead and give it a soak in Eucalan, lay it out to dry and see what I thought about it. I didn’t stretch it much, just pinned it out to keep it’s shape as itContinue reading “Enjoying My Lap Throw”

Another Rainy Day! Yay!

I drove in to pick up a grocery order first thing this morning and stopped by the coffee shop for breakfast croissants on the way home. It was just beginning to drizzle a fine mist when I left for town and it’s still overcast and damp out. We need it. I hope we get aContinue reading “Another Rainy Day! Yay!”

Finally! A Finished Project!

I cast these off the needle last night. The ends are woven in, they’ve been soaked in Eucalan and are on the sock blockers overnight. I plan on wearing them tomorrow. I’ve got quite a bit of ribbing to do on the purple socks… …and I’ve put these socks on separate needles to finish theContinue reading “Finally! A Finished Project!”

It’s A Beautiful Morning

It’s 61° outside, partly cloudy, with a light breeze. The grass is greening up and the ground is still very squishy! We have more rain coming later this week so that is good news. We’ve not had a lot of runoff as most of the rain has been slow and steady and has been soakingContinue reading “It’s A Beautiful Morning”

Another Glorious Day

It’s 10 am and the sky is overcast. We are waiting for the rain to begin, so yes! It’s another glorious day! The drought is finally over and we have the potential for several inches of rain over the next few days. Neither Brad nor I have any errands to run, nothing to do awayContinue reading “Another Glorious Day”

Ready To Weave

I wound the weft off of the larger shuttle and onto the smaller one and I’m ready to work on this band now. It’s a good size loom to use while sitting in the recliner. I woke up all congested and achy this morning but began feeling better as the day wore on, just aContinue reading “Ready To Weave”

The Best Laid Plans…

So, things didn’t go according to plan yesterday. First of all, I intended to have the house open and enjoying fresh air and a nice breeze. Except it was impossible to ignore the awful stench wafting up from the creek…something with mange is prowling around out there. Possibly a scabrous coyote. Nothing, absolutely nothing, isContinue reading “The Best Laid Plans…”

Fall is Finally Here

We woke up to 68° in the house and 58° outside and turned the heat on to get the chill off the house. It’s a gorgeous day, sunny with a light breeze and Brad is headed to the coffee shop for breakfast croissants. We like to do that on Saturday for a treat once inContinue reading “Fall is Finally Here”

No Desk Yet, But…

The guys from Furniture Row arrived yesterday evening and we were expecting this table as well as the desk that will serve as my sewing table. No. Desk. It hasn’t arrived yet. Odd that no one at the store thought to let us know that all we were getting was the small table. I’m aContinue reading “No Desk Yet, But…”

Prepping For Wednesday

The plastic shelves are in the dining room waiting for a new home. The portable table is cleared, folded up, and waiting for Brad to take it to the shop for a shooting bench. The only thing I need to do is move the stuff sitting near the window out of the way so theContinue reading “Prepping For Wednesday”
