Trying to stay focused with all the projects that need to get done...May has been full to the brim. Eric is almost done with re-laying the brick wall and all the replacement railroad ties that make our garden beds. I hope to get the beds turned, new top soil added and planted within the following week. The other, and much more important project, the construction of BB's mud/sand kitchen that will happen on the back porch. BB and I headed out to Goodwill to find a few items, which we did, but the best buy was the HAT, what a sun hat! BB had people stopping in their tracks to admire her fashion style.
I quilted the BRIGHT quilt, the brightest quilt I think I have ever made, a quilt that I pieced, I think 5 years ago and never quilted because the BRIGHT colors scared me. But, when BB saw the top she said: "WOW"! The quilt was machined quilted that week and given to sweet pea. I am afraid that quilt will only attract wasps outside, so it will be an indoor quilt.
Knitting wise, I am blocking a poncho knit " Shelter," I will then attach the shoulders and knit the cowl section. Not sure who will be the recipient of Shelter, I guess who ever it fits best.
I casted on my first Elizabeth Zimmerman guernsey sweater. The few instructions , measurements and math make me a little nervous, but what else is knitting but an adventure. I bought the pattern (loose instructions) and yarn from School House Press in Wisconsin. We will see how all this turns out........
It's raining here-all week long ;- /
