So What Else is New

As always it was another busy weekend.   Got all the chores done except for ironing but, I should have time on Thursday to do it then.  It will wait.  I haven't done anything knitting or stitching this weekend.  I figured maybe I could fiddle around in my room and get some fabric cut for projects.  I got as far as figuring out how large the pieces need to be this afternoon, then I needed a nap.  We were at Mass at 8 am, then out for breakfast and a visit with my mom.  I cleaned out a file cabinet that was my dad's and full of stuff.  I don't think he threw out very much.  It was very organized but, I don't think we need to keep Medicare EOB and the books from each year since 2006.  We brought a bunch of that stuff home and burned it.  One bag of books and non-personal stuff went into the regular garbage.   My dad also had a thing for light bulbs.  The supply he had stockpiled has gone done.  Now you have to remember that he passed away July 4, 2006.  I have a thing for lightbulbs and so does my daughter.  I guess the acorns, well you know the rest.  Then there was laundry and we had my MIL for dinner.

Sometimes I can't decide between the non-flash and flash pictures.  My camera will take one right after the other.  I included both.  I have just a little bit left on the bottom and then I can do the border.
Here is the one with the flash.
The fabric color looks truer but the floss colors in the above look truer

 I keep moving along on the sock. 
I only knit 30 minutes a day.  If I knit longer than that then, my hands get sore.  
  Tomorrow, we are suppose to be experiencing more of the polar vortex.  Can you believe it?
As if we haven't been tormented by that enough this year!!!

Thanks for the great comments.  I love hearing from you, really I do and I'm pretty good about responding back.
Hope you have had a wonderful weekend.  It wasn't too bad here just wish it was a little longer.

Keep on Stitching


  1. Both sampler and socks look wonderful! I have the same question when taking photos of my needlework. I'm never sure which looks better. The same polar vortex that has the mid west cool and rainy, is giving us in the Pacific NW unusually hot weather. We are not equipped for it with few air conditioned places. It is miserable here! We have had several days in the 90's!

  2. Your Sampler is looking great, and the sock too!
    I too wish the weekends were longer. lol

  3. Your socks and sampler look great! Weekends really need to be longer. Enjoy your week!
