Saturday was he perfect rainy day to make a pocketboard. Suzanne
and I were determined to get crafty with this project after being inspired constanty by the shimandsons
Here is my finished product. i used linen and fabric from one of my favorite designers, Heather Ross
I getting ready to rip back on my argyle baby sweater, meanwhile, I've started my quilt! This is a busy fabric collection, but I think i got the perfect quilt pattern for the fabric.
It seems like I am really in need of some knitting photos, otherwise, I may need to edit the title of this blog!
I got on the Beta group for the new Ravelry
site and am really impressed. I have just added my knitting patterns to it and saw someone has photos of their "Bavarian Rockstar" socks in progress. Cool!
On the home front, we found some nice outdoor party lights for the deck. I got the supports ready and stained. We just need to mount them to the deck. It's going to look great. I have a feeling we'll keep them out until October.
I've also started cooking more meals this week. The key is planning ahead and sticking to it. Even though the crockpot meal I made Friday didn't work, beacuse we had dinner plans in Seattle, we had lunches for the weekend, which was a relief during housework. I also made a angel food cake last week with the leftover egg whites from the creme brule the week before. I am loving my Joy of Cooking book. It's so dead-on with recipes.
We also had our first lettuce salad from the garden, even though it had tiny slug holes in it, it was quite tasty and very tender.Maybe if I water it more, the leaves will get a little sturdier. I've been pretty bad about watering. Although i've been good about committing to Thursday as tomato fertilizer day.
