Hello all! Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I noticed the other day that I've managed to pass the one year mark blogging. Who'd a thought I'd still have something to say? Certainly not me!
We've had a wacky weekend, weather-wise, here in W Mi. Alternating between periods of sun and severe thunderstorms all weekend. Flash floods and high winds, sheesh!
I saw our grandson play his last game in the Macker for the weekend this morning. They were so disappointed after doing so well yesterday. There's always next year.
I did manage to run out just before the last storm rolled through and get my gerbera daisies, dahlias, basil and parsley planted. Now if the rain just doesn't beat them down I'll be all set.
We're in one of those-trying to be sunny but not quite making it-times right now so I had a chance to run out and pose my last minute swap project. Isn't it pretty and sparkly?
The yarn is Lana Gatto Arianna in the Marigold colorway. It's a braided yarn with shiny gold running through it. Of course, you can click the pics to make them larger. These small size shots don't show you how glittery it looks. I hope my spoilee likes it. Is it looking like a little purse to you?
I got to spend a few hours at City Knitting yesterday and made great progress on my Mardi Gras sock. I may actually get it finished by next weekend. I got a couple more rows done on the thistle stole but that is pretty slow going, two rows forward and 3 backward, gah!
I'm reading Tales of the City my Armistead Maupin. I read his newest book, Michael Tolliver Lives, while on vacation and found it quite interesting so now I'm going back in time and reading his series about San Francisco in the 70s. Very interesting and entertaining.
I really appreciate you all commenting and giving me encouragement. It's nice to know someone is actually reading some of this stuff.
A great week to you all!
