The past month at the Lady’s house has been busy in spite of not blogging about it. My daughter Anne (grad student at U. of Alabama) and her possessions survived the Tornado That Ate Tuscaloosa, my MIL is still in rehab (for her ankle fracture), and my daughter Caroline stepped in a hole at night, in an alley, in the dark, carrying a case of beer for a party and sprained her ankle so badly she might wish it were broken. So I have been sewing and a lot of throw pillows and curtain panels have been created. Here.
Pillows are addicting. When in doubt, refresh the home with textiles! I am not sure that I think the curtains are “right” but they will do for now. I tried them in the kitchen for a few days but I think they make the north-facing windows darker to the point of dismal so I will come up with another idea for the bay window there. The curtain rods still need to be attached to the wall but I think I am ready to do that. I am so happy to have my own sitting room, where the morning sun streams in that I celebrated with a new lamp.
So then, I made the Guernsey Wrap by Jared Flood out of Shelter yarn. Maybe it could have been a little wider to be a wrap. Maybe should have used a larger needle size. But I loved working with the yarn. It is a lot like pure handspun from roving.
But I love crunchy, especially in cereal and snack foods.
Next, I will think about finishing Cubix
and start Assets of Evo. Not for me silly. That would be inappropriate, take my word for it.
