If It’s so Nice Outside, What am I Doing Inside?

Well, for one thing, I had to open all the windows.  Then, horror of horrors, I broke a nail.  And I’m a little tired from my walk.  It was very windy on the pier.  But I could sit and watch the waves without freezing over.  I couldn’t help but thank God for such a beautiful day.    Actually, I’m waiting for the sun to come around to the deck.  It’s rather chilly in the shade with the wind. 

I should sew.  I have 486 little squares and rectangles to put together and flowers to applique.  And there’s my son’s jeans.  I need to do it by Wednesday.  I wasn’t planning on going there until May, but my daughter bought circus tickets on/for my birthday.  I’ll stay for a few days.  I’ve been wanting to visit an old friend.

Look at what I got from Canada.  It’s fingering weight from Laines Magnifiques.  The colorway is Queen of Hearts.  She’s on etsydot com.  It’s one of those sites that is always getting me in trouble.  I plan to take a skein with me to Sheep & Wool to, hopefully, find a nice semi-solid caramel to go with it.  My daughter really liked it so I’ll make her a vest.  Originally, I was going to accent it with black, but she said it would look great with her ‘brown’ pants.  Forty-five years old and I still spoil her.  But it’s a labor of love.  And I have an excuse to create. 

Well.  The sun is starting to hit the chairs.  I’m out of  here.
