Well, I'm finally knee deep in my clutter removal project. While going through some things in the sewing room, I came across these slippers that I started many moons ago for my friend, Diane. They were done except for the seam....so I took a minute and sewed them up. I had some leftover sock yarn and whipped up a couple little doodads and there you have it.....all ready for Christmas.
I made the second pair of booties out of felled wool and shrunk the pattern to 75%. I like this pair very much and if I make any more, I will use the smaller pattern and wool vs. fleece.
This little sweetie wedged herself on the edge of the couch when I sat down to sew....good thing she didn't fall off :)
Here's a picture of my foxgloves for Sherry. She's getting a clump next spring.
I'm making headway on the sadness and every day gets better at work. Hopefully I will soon be able to work only three days a week vs. leaving the job altogether. More news to follow.....
I have two tops cut out for myself and hope to get them made up in the next couple of weeks. I also have begun the heel flap on my second blue sock (they have been on the needles TOO long), and I can't wait to say they are DONE! In between, I'm going to keep plugging away on cleaning out my house and my mom's for the huge garage sale I plan to have in the fall.
I hope you have a safe and happy Independence Day. We are heading to a Tiger's baseball game this evening, complete with fireworks afterward. I haven't been to Comerica Park in a long time....so this is exciting for me. If you pray, remember to thank our Heavenly Father for this beautiful country we live in and the freedom we enjoy.
