Happy Mothers Day! I hope each of you are being celebrated! G arranged for the 4 of us to have a nice lunch on the Intercoastal Waterway at a local restaurant. The service was very slow (not only is it Mothers Day but TPC is nearby) but that was ok. It's hard for the 4 of us to get together all at the same time so we had a nice long time to chat. Here's a picture of my boys.from today (no pics on the water as too many hot girls around). C is moving out this fall so it's going to be even harder for the 4 of us to get together at once. I'm enjoying it while I can! They're both neat people (though very different) and it's fun to spend time with them. Even though they're not babies or little boys any longer, hearing them laugh is still my favorite thing to hear!
I had a bit of time so I worked on my paper piecing project. The borders look wonkier than they actually are. This is only my second border experience. You can see where I used scissors (instead of measuring and using the rotary cutter) on the top right. I'll even it up when I put on the binding. This is a fun project. I should have, however, reread the instructions as I didn't shorten the stitch length last weekend when I worked on the last 3 paper pieced hearts. It makes a difference when it comes time to take the paper off the back of the block!
Lesson Learned: When you've put a project away for a time; pull out the instructions and read them as if you were just starting. Don't rely on your memory!
Last year when I first started knitting, I came across a blog post with a scarf made out of a beautiful yarn. The scarf was way too hard for me but I went ahead and ordered the yarn and purchased the book that had the scarf in it. I had the yarn with me last weekend and just had to take another picture of it. This gorgeousness just can't sit in my yarn cabinet any longer! It's time to become that scarf!I hope that you all get to do exactly what you want to do today! Happy Mothers Day!
