Switching times

For quite a while, I've been blogging at night when Dave was doing his paperwork and watching his favorite political shows. However, I've found that with the summer heat I just get sleepy if I'm looking at a computer screen. So, I'm trying shifting to the morning hours.

There was little time for tatting yesterday, but I did manage to get a little done. I'm always happy with any progress.

Joanne and I had fun shopping at Hobby Lobby yesterday, and for once, I didn't go crazy! I only purchased two packages of tapestry needles. For some reason, they disappear at an alarming rate, and I never seem to find those needles in my haystack. ;-)

Joanne doesn't have a Hobby Lobby near her, so she stocked up on quilt fabric and clearance yarn. She also found some fabric to make a couple of dresses for Sophia, which we started yesterday afternoon.

Carol spent the afternoon setting up the raffle and auction tables for the play this weekend. When I took some supplies in to her, I noticed the display of mermaid tail afghans. I didn't like the way two of the tails looked, so I took them home and adjusted the way they were attached. They look much better now!

The excitement for the play is really building. My job for the weekend is to supervise the activities on the floor, making sure there are volunteers working at the concession stand, raffle tables, auction tables, and souvenir tables. It will be hot and humid, so I will be sure to take my water bottle with me!


  1. Your spinning wheel looks great!! :)
    Hope you have a fabulous weekend and wonderful play!!! :)

  2. Personally I don't mind what time of the day you blog - just make sure you do it at some point!!!!

  3. Oh, so it's not only me that has a problem with disappearing tapestry needles?!

  4. Have a great weekend! Hope the play and activities go well.

  5. I'm amazed you manage to get any tatting done with all of the things you've been doing to prepare for this weekend. Have fun! I'm sure it will be a great success.


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
