Random Bits




A few random bits from the week...

* Walked barefoot in the soft grass.  

* Read a book outside, in the sunshine, on a blanket.  I was even alone for about five minutes before the boys found me.

* Made several sets of cloth napkins, some for the shop and a set for us at home.  I adore the tiny flower print and originally bought it to make a Wiksten tank.  Let's just say this pattern is not flattering on us larger busted women.  It hangs like a tent, if you know what I mean.  I should have known this from the get go, but I was in denial. The pattern is well written though, and easy for a novice like me.

* Trying to find more ways to cut expenses.

* Walked to town every day.
.
* Baked these.  No one wants me to bake them again.

* Started a new knitting project, but slipped the first stitch of each row when I should have knit it.  I ripped it out and stared over.  

* I used fish emulsion for the first time.  It's horrible smelling stuff, but I'm told my seedlings will love it.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

p.s.  I don't think I've mentioned this here before, but our oldest son, Jake, is a Falconer and tomorrow he's releasing his very first bird.  It's going to be a rough day all around.
