Little Yellow Monsters and Other Things
I was extraordinarily productive this weekend. I was on such a roll, I wish I’d had another couple days. First I made a friend for my nephew:
His name is Mort, and he will be in the mail tomorrow along with the sweater. I’m thinking I’ll make a few more of these, I sketched a bunch of different ones, and he came out just like the sketch I chose. I love it when that happens. He’s made of wool felt and a little embroidery floss and a couple buttons. Simple and fun to make!
I also finished my last kitchen curtain:
The one on the right is the one I finished Saturday, the one on the left was finished some time last year. I procrasitinate occasionally. It’s so good to have the hideous mini-blinds out of there, real curtains make such a difference. And these were the bargain of the year, since I got the floral fabric from the remnent pile at Calico Corners. Original price? $49.95/yard! My price? 75% off! ($12.50 for the math-impaired). It’s a linen/cotten blend. I love me some linen.
I also scrubbed the kitchen clean, saw “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkeban” and knitted more of the boring blanket (I’m about to start on skein 5 of 6! Hallelujah, the end is in sight).
I did not, however, get my giant pile of laundry folded. It wasn’t my fault, however, as Gigi, the cross-eyed kitty was guarding it for most of the weekend (here she’s on top of the boring blanket as well):
And lastly, I spent a some time outside, puttering in my little garden:
The man is in charge of most of the yard, but I have my little corner and my big pots of herbs. Bear likes to stand right next to us when we work in the yard. Even when it’s 90 degrees out, I have warm dog leaning in to me at all times.
