Bronchitis Sucks

May 26, 2017

I am currently on my second course of medication for bronchitis.  I am completely wiped out.  About all I have accomplished is sock knitting .  I have not worked on my quilt at all!  I can’t stand it!  I need to block my new sweater!  Sweetums needs some shirts fixed!  I want to make myself a new summer dress!  I want to bake something delicious!

Here’s a little something I did before I got sick.  My favorite tote was falling apart.  The orange fabric is new.  It also, now, has a strong bottom.

Christmas is Over

May 19, 2017

Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.  Christmas.  I don’t know which I enjoy more.

On Thursday, I took two classes with Lily Chin.  What did I learn?  I’m still wondering.  I took her class on the advise of a friend.  I found her to be quite unprofessional.  I think she thought she was being “cute”.  Even though she was reminded several times by students that there was a child in class, she continued to speak inappropriately.  I kept thinking, “I came two days early for this?”

Franklin Habit was a completely different story.  He was one of the best teachers I’ve ever had.  I learned something new.  I got some great ideas.  It was over long before I wanted. That evening I made a swatch of the chart I made and I really like it.  And, now, I can’t find it.

The afternoon class was on garters and I-cord.  That one caused me to look at things differently.  It was so nice to really learn something.  He also discussed some pocket applications. I hope he comes back.

After class, I walked down to the main  hall.  I needed some DK yarn and Shelridge always has a wide range of colors.  I’ve bought yarn from them several times and never been disappointed.

  I realize that these look bland for me, but I have some animals to make.

I also visited my favorite broche person, Liz Printz.  One of mine needed some work and she was happy to comply.

  And I just had to buy a new one.
