Thanks for the cyber hugs and emails over my mini meltdown!
As the song says, life goes on!
We had quite the week last week leading up to the kids' departure!
You may have seen Sioux Falls on the news. We were hit by a horrendous
ice storm that took out almost half of the city's power!
We only lost ours for 24 hours, but the kids weren't so lucky.
So they were staying with us prior to their departure.
Which may have made last Saturday's leaving all the more harder.
But...we got thru it.
Power is restored.
Life moves on!
I've been going from project to project,
I've been knitting occasionally on the Hayward sweater I started.
I'm ready to begin raglan decreases on the back!
I hope I'm not in over my head with a sweater project,
but I'll never figure it out if I don't try!
And I've got all the applique pieces traced and one block
prepped for the Serendipity quilt!
I used my Roxanne's Glue-Baste-It and got busy today.
Once it's dry, I'll set out to get the other three blocks prepped
and then will have it at the ready!
I love Jan Patek's big four block quilts!
I've also been stitching.
Maria Selby Humphrey 1831 is moving along!
Another great Blackbird Designs piece, I'm really enjoying working
on this! The colors are a nice departure from the Peace sampler I finished recently!
I'm using the GAST threads as charted.
Stitching on 36ct Lakeside Linens Vintage Pearled Barley.
And the WearWithAll Stole hasn't seen much attention.
But I'm going to remedy that this afternoon!
It's another cloudy day and I'm anxiously awaiting spring!
So I'll just settle in with my knitting,
under my daylight lamp,
and dream of spring!
