I cannot believe that it's Sunday night, already!
Where on earth did the time go? Yesterday was a busy day...I spent it sewing, then errands, then a luxury! My dear friend, Lynette (I mentioned her below), dropped by. We went out to dinner for sandwiches & salad, and returned to my place. Then together, we sat and knit, and talked...and talked. Lynette was first mom to my BB and the Calico Curmudgeon. She's taken care of a feral colony for years. Cats come to her, but she's never been able to get her hands on The Meezer (very few people ever have...). And last night? FINALLY. Lynette was the friend who helped with BB last weekend, so she mostly spent the whole day here. I suppose, the two long visits helped The Meezer to feel that maybe she really was okay (no question, Meeze, no question).
Lynette and I used to be practically inseparable. That was before she started her soap business, Enchanted Forest Soaps, and I started Nana Sadie Rose
, and now neither one of us has a lot of spare time...we agreed we would have to make more time for knitting and conversation from now on!
Today I spent some time with vendor contracts for shows, and planning bags, and ordering fabrics. Then...I finished these and another of the Wild Slides (the bag on the left):
It was easy to do - because we were under heavy rain bands from the remnants of the tropical system Barry. Do you think we got much rain? Well...these lilies think so!
Now last night, and again tonight, because of Barry and the start of hurricane season, I've been of a mind to knit some of these:
The blue & white one is from Abigail
(and I added one too many repeats, and STILL it looks good! lol), and then you can see the beginning of the blue hearts? Well, that's from a Leisure Arts publication Dishcloths From The Heart
which you KNOW I'd have to have. These patterns are by Evelyn A. Clark, and they are lace, folks! Lace in dishcloth cotton...obviously, I'm in heaven...
I've been involved (with Jane
) in Cloths For Crisis
, a Yahoo group (button in the sidebar) for a couple of years now. We knit dishcloths and facecloths for folks who are hit by disaster. We got a little quiet last year (Hooray! Not too many crises!), but I think most folks have been knitting away and donating to groups in their own communities, which is recommended to the membership - either that, or just knit up a stash of cloths so we're ready when the next disaster occurs (because they always do, you know?
So if you'd like to join us (after all, it might be an active season, what with Barry on the scene so early and all...) just click the link and come on in!
(Could we get another day in this weekend somehow, ya think?)
