Easter Weekend

I actually see sun shining on the road! I should be outside but here I am filling you in about life to date.

Yesterday was Good Friday so the shop was closed. A good thing too because Jim, Patrick and I went to Belleville and brought Rhea home for the summer. Yes! The college year is over! It is loverly having her close by again. Hopefully she will find summer employment! Keeping my fingers crossed for her.

Today the shop ( Kniterary) is open. I will be getting to knitting a commission soon. I got 6 inches in and then realized I had cast on 20 too many stitches....fricker bricker......SO...frogged and restarted using stitch markers to help with the counting issue!

I have been working on flower brooches with Tara for Tarmina Designs. A little bit of rug hooking and a little bit of beading and we have these lovelys.

We are stocking up for the Mother's Day weekend Studio Tour. They will make great Mother's Day gifts!

I have been working on some tea cozies for the same tour as well but they are not at a photographable stage yet!

It is now 12:30 PM. I am hungry. Going to get a bagel!

I think I finally found a hat that I love!
It looks reasonably good on me and does not constrict my big brain!

Bead Club Fun

Last night was Bead Club. I enjoy bead club. Even when I am tired!

We had fun playing with chiffon and tulle and candles.

OOOO.... fire!

I made this funky flower.

More are on their way!
