Enjoying the weather

We had a beautiful Memorial Day here in northern Illinois. The temperature was warm. The sun was shining. The best part was, there was a glorious breeze all day long.

Tollway Tatters met via Zoom on Saturday, and I was able to make pretty good progress with my Star of Bethlehem doily from Bonded with tatting - doilies by Laura Bziukiewicz. 

My sister came to visit Saturday afternoon and spent the night. She left early Sunday to work in her garden, and Dave and I left shortly after. We made a plant delivery and then headed up to visit daughter Alison for the day. My brother came down to spend time with Mom. They're collaborating on a heddle idea for Mom's band weaving.

Memorial Day was very low key for us. Mom and I spent the day knitting, reading, and watching movies. Dave worked outside planting vegetables and flowers. 

Today will be busy. I have three recent high school graduates coming over to help me organize upstairs. It's time to de-clutter!


  1. Beautiful projects!! :)

  2. Plenty of activity! The doily is looking great.

  3. With neuropathy in my right hand, I only get to do a little bit of tatting each day... so I am just so pleasantly AMAZED at how FAST many of you get things done LOL! And so lovely to spent time with a loved one. I hope the garden does well and the decluttering, also ;-D


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
