--I'm participating in Slow Stitch Sunday, please come join us.
Jeweled Lines is growing, but it seems to be at a slow point right now for me. It's 43 ish inches. I'm a bit over half way through the largest turquoise section and next up will be a small gray strip followed by the amethyst. I've not been knitting quite as much as I've begun working hard at finding lost classmates.
My high school class reunion for 50 years (egads how did I get that old) is next year. I'm the person that finds people and maintains the database. It's a job. With those who've passed on (surprising how many), those that have moved, women who divorced and therefore have a different name etc. Anyway, because of that, I've been on the computer more and therefore knitting less.
This is a most unusual view from our windows this am. Seriously you can see we do not live in the country or a wooded area. We are in a very developed, long standing neighborhood. These two Deer (one has a reasonable size rack, and the other has one starting), spend a good amount of time cruising around in our yard, (non fenced), then hopped the fence behind us where the blue house is, then came back and jumped the chain length fence to our neighbor to the right of us. In front of blue house is a major road...one of the most major in our community that connects 2 neighborhoods and 2 freeways. They need to get across that road to get to safety. About 1/4 of a mile on the other side of said road and to the right is a golf course......perhaps that's where they came from? Down the busy road or any of our roads on this side takes them to the river in about a mile.......but then have to cross a 4 lane extremely highway to get to the river.
Last week I shared a cross stitch I made years ago (scroll back to previous post), so today I thought I'd share one of the quilts I made a good number of years ago. I do do other stitching besides knitting and crocheting.......just not as much. I have some lovely blog ladies visiting who do really intricate cross stitch and or make very involved quilts...with real quilting patterns. I'm a dabbler. But, this quilt was fun as it's made from flannel nightgowns. In my younger years we had a group of friends who skiied every year and we woman would have "team" nightgowns for lounging around at the end of the day. Nothing warmer or more comfy than a flannel nightgown after skiing in the cold all day. So, this quilt was made for a very good friend from those nightgowns with cross stitched squares that have memories from our various trips. I had planned to make one for the other lady in the group and myself........somehow, that never happened.
