1. I welcome Freida back into the mix. I have neglected her since we moved, and she is finally out from under her cover. Sweet Freida, she still purrs like a kitten, not a bump or glitch in her stitches. I perched her on our formal dining room table. And there she will stay, where I can sew and still keep an eye on the kidlets on the main floor.
As you can see, thread is everywhere already. :) Home sweet home.
2. A project is in its beginnings: Sedum. Ah, and it will be for me.
My arms smell sheep-ly from this Cascade Eco. Why, you might ask? Well, I don't have a swift so I wrap the yarn around my arms while I get one of my awesome children to turn the crank on this ballwinder.
My firstborn son, he is so sweet and patient...it took us 40 minutes to wind 2 hanks of yarn into 6 large balls. He earned his dessert today!
I know, so pretty. (and worth it!) I did, however, promise to gift myself with a swift as soon as I finish another large project. You'd better believe I'm diving into Sedum in hopes I make it out alive, fitting into the cardi, and shopping online for a swift.
3. I am admiring thisA gift from one of my friends, Mindy, for my sweet Baby J.
I can't stop looking at it! Great super soft yarn, and of course just a beautiful delicate pattern perfect for a loved babe. The buttons on these booties are *tiny*. This set is definitely going into her forever treasure chest after she wears it this fall.
I've been really blessed have such wonderful girlfriends. That in all of my travels, I have been able to bring the memories of these adopted sisters wherever I go. I am thrilled that this time around, I am able to see some of these sisters again, and Mindy is one of them. Thank you friend!!! I love it!
Happy Hump Day everyone!
