This past week was . . . weird. In no small part due to a Thursday routine procedure I had scheduled, which required several days of prep beforehand. If you know, you know. If you don't, I'll spare you the details (but only until you're post-50!). Still, I feel like I got a lot of *other* stuff done . . .
For example, when your six-year-old grandson facetimes you to specially request that you make him a new scarf in his new favorite color, you pretty much jump on it . . .
Yes, black is Sawyer's new favorite color! He's so cute! I decided to give the loom a try, mostly because my co-worker has been using one and the results are so even and pretty.
I think it turned out nicely. He'll be able to wrap up twice in it -- it's longer than my 66" frame! Not a bad two-day project, right? And speaking of Sawyer, they just got his school pics back:
He gets more handsome every day! Gosh I miss him and his family!
So, I finished up the black scarf, but then there's Ellie, whose favorite color is "red with sparkles". Can't ignore that, can I?
Of course not! This yarn is a lot lighter (which probably would have been more appropriate for the scarf going to Southern California), but it does have sparkle!
I've been (and will continue today) to do some hand work on a super-secret project that I need to wrap up and get in the mail this week . . .
Terrible shot, right? Good. Ha! I should be able to show a finish next week to make up for it. :)
I've been doing some other crafty stuff, too . . .
These little guys are "treats" for my preschool Sunday school class. Today we will make up these sweet little blessings wreaths as our craft,
So I've got everything cut out and ready for those, too.
My stash is ... unchanged. The unchanged melody.
Maybe next week? I'll do some regular sewing this afternoon, too. Evey's going to be Ursula to Ellie's Ariel. She needs eels.
I'll be making eels. LOL! The things we do for our grandchildren, right?!?
And I would be remiss if I didn't share the beautiful shelf my friend made for me, just for this tea-filled space . . .
It's perfect -- my tea tins were starting to be a little cluttered!
I'll be linking up to Patchwork Times and Kathy's Quilts. Y'all enjoy a lovely Sunday . . . and a fabulous week!
