Getting ready!

Daughter Joanne and family are arriving tomorrow! Of course, there is plenty to do in preparation for their arrival. The morning was spent shopping for necessities such as baby food and a kiddie pool. Big shopping is a 40 minute drive away, so it's something that needs to be planned.

This afternoon I finished up packaging key rings and necklaces for the play. That part of the preparation is done!

Busy days mean frequent work breaks, even if it's just for a few minutes. Hopefully, I will have time to finish this Spinning Wheel while finishing up household chores tomorrow.

I also took time to work on my mermaid tail afghan. Only two rows to go before I start to decrease!

I managed to clear a path to my loom and start another scarf. I do love my weaving time. It's so relaxing... no patterns to follow, just a nice, rhythmic back and forth. I know Sophia will want to help me weave, so I'll have to make a little more space before they arrive tomorrow!


  1. Sounds like a houseful, enjoy
    I am sure she will love playing with the loom and making herself a scarf, your new one looks lovely

  2. Great projects and colors!!! :)

  3. Your energy is amazing! The doily looks luscious in those colors :)

  4. I love that you enjoy having lots of different projects going at once.

  5. I am new to tatting and love the spinning wheel patter. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find the book! Do you know if this pattern is posted anywhere?

    1. The book is out of print, but it is still under copyright, so the pattern should not be posted anywhere. I think your best bet is to haunt eBay, Alibris, Abe's Books, etc. and hope that a copy show up!

    2. Many thanks! I think I've found a library that has it. I will also keep an eye on ebay and the other suggestions you have. Love viewing your work! Thanks for sharing.

  6. You are definitely keeping yourself busy with all your projects. How lucky you are! Have fun with the grandkids!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
