I think this holiday weekend is a long one for a lot of people with the 4th being on a Tuesday. Mike is off all week – with this contract job his hours are a little different this time then it normally is – last week he was working 4-12 this week he is off and the following week will be more normal daytime hours once again. If any of you in the states are traveling for the holiday week I hope you all have fun and stay save – the roads can be horrible at holiday time. We are staying home and working on the house and will do hamburgers or something outside if the weather is nice – the heat will be in the forecast – for the first time since summer arrived we are to be in the low 90’s all week!! Too hot, much prefer it to stay in the high 70’s or low 80’s and to jump right into the 90’s is too much for me.
Yesterday was a no sewing day for me – not usual but it happens now and then. I thought seeing as I didn’t get any sewing done I would show the Patriotic table runner that I made last year. I was going to put it out at Memorial Day and I forgot so the 4th it will be and I will leave it out for the summer or part of it anyhow.
With the wooden long bread bowl full of placemats ready to use.
For Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy I will be working more on Granny’s Gone Crazy – a little more has been added to this since the last photo – and as you see I got my newest King Arthur sales catalog – I love this cooking company and order little do dads from the catalog for the kitchen and they always have a recipe or two in it that sound good. I look at their on line page where they share a lot of recipes that are good. Also linking to Quilting is More Fun Than Housework .
I don’t know if any of you remember the yarn I bought in the winter time – I was going to try to crochet a bulky shrug type of sweater that really had an easy pattern to go with it – well it wasn’t working out LOL – the main problem is that the pattern didn’t really specify how small the woman was that made the pattern – she said it was a size small but we must be talking someone that is barely 5 feet tall with the arms the length of a child. No way, no how was it going to fit me – I had started and I made my chain much longer than the pattern called for taking in to account how long my arms are – I am a little over 5’7” and my arm span is about that long as well. This week was spent unraveling the whole thing and winding back into balls and I’m going to start over again and make it my way!! maybe it will end up being an afghan instead of a shrug – LOL – either way this yarn will get used. I will start working on it off and on and we will see how it goes and it if will be ready for winter.
