What Did I Learn Today?

August 9, 2010

Twin needles make me crazy.  I like the foot I got.  It feeds the ribbon very nicely.  I wound up using  a little zigzag stitch.  It looks good.

I’ve been wanting to write something for days, but I haven’t had a decent amount of quiet time to do a good job.  I’ve been making progress on gloves and I want to tell you about the great time I had Tuesday.  Maybe tomorrow.

Moving Walls

August 5, 2010

Frank was here all day yesterday making a helluva lot of noise.  It wasn’t long before I wanted to hide with the cats.  He put in a long day and I thought he would never leave.  He tried to scare me by commenting on all the bugs crawling out of the wall.  I didn’t bat an eyelash.  When you’ve lived with Doug as long as I have, you learn not to take anything seriously that anybody tells you.  But, then, I’ve never been one of those squealy girls.

yarn room I can only get to a small portion of my yarn. I did manage to get some out before it was too late. One of them was my Coraline glove yarn.Coaline yarn


 The orange is off, but it was the best that I could do.  I wanted to get all the colors from one company.  And it had to be the right kind.  This batch is DK weight.  I also have fingering.  Anybody want Coraline gloves? 

I’d better go.  It’s starting to rain and I need to do a few things. 

Special Gloves

August 3, 2010

I’m going to see if they fit tomorrow.  Then I’m going yarn and/or fabric shopping with my girlfriends. 

My daughter called this morning.  She was buying Disney antenna toppers and having a ball.  It’s nice to know she is still my little girl at heart.   They are in Orlando for a few days before going to Key West.  They took two weeks off.  I hope they have lots of fun.
