Slippery.......

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.

It sounds like things are looking up Amy! After you get all of your stuff all cleaned out, maybe you could come here -- I'm getting tired of all the junk but I hate to throw stuff out. Yipee for a jump on the Christmas knitting. Oh, and that foxglove is stunning!
