Still Raining

Even though it was raining, Sweet Baby Rue had to check on the geese.  I didn’t think there was that much room in our little pump house.

At least he had enough sense to seek shelter.

I found backing for my Splendid Sampler.  The print is 104″ by 88″ and my quilt is 106.5 by 106.5 so I had to get the orange to add a border.

It was time for my machine to have a check-up.  It was getting a little laud.  Time to get out my embroidery machine and make a label.

The goose babies hatched early this year.  The warm winter was probably the cause. I don’t think I will ever tire watching them.

On the knitting front, I decided to try this mitten kit.  I liked not having to weave all the ends.  I didn’t like having to constantly watch where the colors changed and trying to adjust my tension.  They are knit on size 2 and I would have preferred size 0 or even 00 with this yarn.  My daughter said the little kids on her bus will get a kick out of them, so she was happy.  Isn’t it all that  really matters.  I also bought a sock kit that will quite different when finished.  There is no way that I am going to use size 2 needles for socks.
