Good Morning All,
Here we are at Monday morning again. Where did the weekend go? One thing for sure - the heat arrived - 90 in the shade on our patio yesterday afternoon. More of the same today and tomorrow and then a cooling down. According to my phone, Thursday will only be a high in the low 70's.
No progress pictures of knitting, though I did work some on the shawl and the sock. I did, however, finally drag out some stitching to work on. This is Mary Glover which was an SAL I participated in -- believe it was back in 2011! I stopped working on this so close to the finish and I can't remember why (probably just got tired of it and moved on to something else).
There are just some spot motif things after I finish the rice stitch band. I hope to get this finished in June (more likely July). I stitched a small item on Saturday which I am going to make into a pincushion (you can see where I've pulled out a linen thread all around the design to mark where I will stitch backing fabric).
Can't get this one to turn around....
Fletch and Colin made it down to DE and picked up the desk. We delivered it to Colin's Sunday morning. Meals were easy over the weekend - we ordered out Chinese Friday, went to a Mexican restaurant on Saturday and yesterday had shrimp and pasta salad with lots of fresh veggies in it.
Tyg is not fond of the hot weather. He stays in the shade (or in the house). Yesterday he was lethargically rolling in the grass (practicing his yoga stretches):
And, to keep you cool, here is a picture of part of the water feature Fletch built at the edge of our patio. Just hearing running water makes me feel cooler!
The spout is from bamboo that we have growing at the back edge of our woods.
I won't be at work tomorrow as I will be without a computer. My computer gets shipped down to the home office in Charlotte today, they will transfer all my stuff to a new one and ship that to me Tuesday for delivery Wednesday. Not much for me to do without a computer. So, I scheduled my mammogram for tomorrow morning and the rest of the day should be found time for knitting/stitching/reading!
Hoping everyone's week is off to a great start!
