Whew! It's been a blur of week it seems! Am I ever glad it's Friday! Am I ever NOT glad it's Friday? Ahem...no. But I digress...
What a fun week!
I finished knitting the second sock to the stopping point....but look...they don't match...
I'm okay with it though...these are going to be wool socks...for wearing around the house. Besides....it didn't matter which end of the skein I started with, they were not coming out to even remotely match the other. And then it hit me! Because on the first sock....the skein was spliced/knotted together!!! That's why there's a huge blurp of orange to red!! Otherwise they'd be nicely striped like the second sock. But I just overlook that and remind myself these are my FIRST SOCKS!!! Wooohoo! and I started the second one and got it to this point without any direction! I cannot believe it! Tomorrow is the second installment of the class....the heel part! Wish me luck!!!
Then on Tuesday it was my birthday.....yes it's true...I was born on the same day as the Prez.....cool huh? Anyway...the hubs sent a beautimus vase of flowers to the office...
They really brightened my cube AND my work-week. Who doesn't love some colorful gerber daisies! And little tiny miniature roses! And all the COLOR! I LOVE them! And now they're home with me for the weekend!
He also surprised me by going out solo on a thrifting mission...and oh my word did he find two great things for me!!! I can't hardly believe it and have questioned him emphatically about the exact place he found these great prints!
This one is his favorite...and I love the earthy look it has!
And THEN he found THIS...at the same thrift store!!!
The Seamstress!! By Vermeer!!! I couldn't believe it!
Both are prints that have been textured to look like paintings...what's that called anyway? I can't remember...but anyhooo..both were framed by the same framer, so obviously from the same household lot that was donated to Goodwill. I love them both!!
And then today......this arrived...
The new American Jane line from Moda....such FUN color in her fabric lines...I just love them! Not pastel like 30s...more 40s and 50s feel to them. Can't wait to figure out what to do with them!
And these came today as well...
All are great and shall remain in my library! As always, you can find these things in my Ebay listings by clicking on the Ebay link over there in the sidebar.
It's been a great week...I'm glad the weekend is here! Weekends always make me a..
What a fitting name to this fun line and to describe me right about now---Happy Camper! Hope your week's been fun and color-filled as well!
