What happened to the first part of the week! It’s gone already! I must have blinked.
I can’t say I’ve been doing anything life altering but just puttering around here.
I have been playing with my new mixer, and I love it!
Its a bit
messier slower making butter than the food processor but cookies mix up quick!
Yes, I know the 70’s green counters went out in …..well the 70’s but, they’re paid for and there is usually enough stuff on the counters I don’t see them any more!
A few hats were knit orders, I had them ready to go but I felt would be to small so I remade them to be on the safe side.There’s been some other knitting, I have 1 pair of longies completed & drying, (with another on the needles) a pair of shorties also completed and drying.
I’ve been playing with a pattern for a simple headband/ear warmer for Danielle. She’s outside so much with the kids and her ears get cold…but will she wear a hat? No….so I’m trying to come up with some thing she can use.
I’ve also been test knitting for another company & will post it when they say it’s ok. Which, I’m sure will be soon. Actually as soon as I ask!
The basement is slowly getting weeded out. One benefit is I found a comforter for the bed in Isaiah’s old room. It’s new! I vaguely remember purchasing it right before they moved in & never got it out as they had their own things.
Its been interesting sorting through some of the stuff down there. It’s the kids old playroom and has become a storage dump…all the things they wanted to keep but not take with them when they moved out. Slowly but surly it’s being emptied. Honestly, I just don’t want to do all the trips up and down the stairs it would take to do it all at once. Besides, once the playroom is done I need to work on the sewing room & I’m not looking forward to that.
Tomorrow Erika & I are going to the Louisville Home and Garden Show. We are just looking for landscaping ideas for her house. That’s the story any way!
What are you plans for the weekend?
