It seems like he was a toddler……
Time passes so quickly!
Aside from Dan going to the prom, it was a busy, but good week. The TaxMan fixed the Tax problem and surprise, surprise – the I*S made a mistake – and we’re still getting the refund we should get. Wednesday Bob was able to get home a little early and we headed out to play our first round of 18 holes – we had a lot of fun and a delicious dinner afterward. We’re totally going to use our membership to the fullest! And 4 hours of golfing with riding around in a cart? Burns around 12o0 calories!!!!!
The yarn for Nantucket Red arrived….again….this time, it’s the right yarn…
I’ll be casting on for this over the weekend!
And I was lucky enough to stumble across this in a destash…..
YarnChef Buttercream in Whimsy – it’s a light greyish lavender color which is going to look great in a shawl – what shawl? Don’t know yet, but I really couldn’t pass this up.
M-Edge Prodigy cover and Box Bag.
Third times a charm for the Box Bag – this one came out perfectly! I was having a little trouble trying to get my angles straight on the “box” part – and figured out a way to cut the angle before I sew it – this way all four corners are exactly the same and they are all straight! Makes a perfect “box”. I’m really happy with this one and I plan on making more. I don’t know that I’ll sell them – I’ve had a few inquiries – and the thing that has me hesitant about it is that I haven’t figured a way to finish the inside seems – they are trimmed and neat, but still seams and I’m wondering if that would be a deterrent to people? I just don’t know. I don’t mind it – it sure would keep the cost down because of the time not spent covering up the seams….
My cover arrived for the Kindle and it’s perfect! I highly recommend this series of covers – it comes in many colors, leather, synthetic leather and the kindle sits nice and secure inside…..
The skin from Decal girl – it’s almost fully protected – the only thing I need to so is figure out a sealed bag to take along camping – the cover is great but it is open on three sides – I want something to keep the dirt of camping from creeping inside it. I will probably sew something up myself since I can certainly take measurements and feel reasonably sure of putting a zipper in now! I do love my kindle – it’s gone pretty much everywhere with me since I got it – with the exception of the Golf Course!
Well, there are a few yard sales to get to this morning – Bob was lucky enough to score a full set of Callaway Big Bertha Irons last weekend for 30 bucks! A few errands to run – a 21st birthday party tonight, a confirmation tomorrow and hopefully some knitting and golfing squeezed in there for good measure! Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s fun!
