Friday sure was a busy day. First, I went to lunch with my blogger friends. (I blogged that yesterday...) Then, that night, I had a Friday Night Sew In! Woo hoo! I thought you'd like to see what everyone was working on! There were some new people there, so I won't be able to remember everyone's name...even some people who've been there before. But I'll do my best!
First, Holly had gone to California, and while she was there, she discovered that Purl Soho's yarn warehouse was only about 2 minutes from where her daughter lives. She was all over that! She showed us the awesome yarns she brought back, along with a new knitting bag. The blue yarn you see there is SO soft! Cashmere, if I remember correctly. Some of it was baby alpaca and some even had camel hair in it! She said it was an amazing place. She spent two days there...one day to yarn shop and another to fabric shop. (For those of you who don't know, Purl Soho is a yarn shop in Soho, New York. They have an awesome blog called the Purl Bee. I've reposted some of their posts here.)
Karen was working on this prayer shawl. A member of her family had died and she was making this for someone close to that person to comfort her. But now she decided it looks like a table runner. So, she's making it dual purpose. I like the little wool applique she has added on there. She is also adding little orange french knot berries near the flowers. Very nice looking.
I think I showed this one last time, too. But the top is finished, and it was getting basted. She said she was going to quilt little mice running around the purple border inside. What a cute idea! I think this is adorable. And the fabric line is the same as in the flower quilt above, if you'll notice!
There were other things going on, but I didn't get pictures of it all. I have a quilt I was working on, but I'll show it to you on Friday for my UFO update. :-)
Things are really busy here. I will TRY to get a post up tomorrow, but I went to get my permanent crown on the other day, and it was so painful that the dentist thinks I need a root canal now. I have to get evaluated for that tomorrow. So, be thinking of me. After the root canal I'll get the permanent crown. Plus, I have about a million things that MUST be done tomorrow! This is really messing up my schedule!
In sad news, my SIL Linda (SisLH) lost her dog of 11 years this morning. I am so sad to hear that. Gypsy was a good dog. Please keep Linda in your thoughts. We had a little sad news here, today, too. But, I'll tell you about that later, I guess. I feel like this is getting long, and I'm bummed out about it. So, I don't feel like talking about it right now.
Better news...I updated the Health tab. I lost a little more and am now down over 13 pounds. Yay! Wish it was coming off faster though. Isn't that always the case?
Hope you are all doing well!
Until next time,
