It has been a long 10 days but it is behind me now! ( I do not recommend cutting yourself off from the world by losing your phone and internet!) Marsel and I laid the ground work for Krystle's nursery set and I finished the comforter after Marsel had to return to Georgia.
The quilting lines give the pattern a subtle look to the back, too.
After much wrestling, I got the bumper pads turned and pressed! Everything was mailed out to Krystle on Monday and she got it all today-hooray! Now it is safe and sound and set up in Aria's room!
The heat and rain has produced some beautiful blooms on my bottle brush tree!
I finished the scarf for the knit-a-long--6 feet of lace-it is whisper soft!
I am participating in the Tour de Fleece on Ravelry this year also (spinning or knitting while the Tour de France take place) I joined the cotton spinning team from Cotton Clouds and I transferred my new skills on the spindle to the spinning wheel-yes, I am even using my 'sore' foot! I had some sliver and some raw-the sliver is easier to spin, of course, but the ginned cotton was free and I am determined to use it, too. I have to card it and make my own punis then spin it-very good therapy for my foot!
The results are spectacular-it is as relaxing as using the spindle and I am able to get so much more done in the same time.
