Sunshine Makes me Happy!!

Yeah for the first campfire of the season

I finished Luna Regina after several months...almost a full year of work..primarily because I had a short attention span. The cats helped block it to make sure I did ok; that's Lucky. I bought the blocking wires from KnitPicks They also had a nice tutorial I just checked out to see. Common sense really but a nice resource. They were really fast at sending it out as well!

Tatting: Back burnered the doily "Cornelia" from Iris Niebach but will start it up again with the same thread because you all told me it looked ok in the vari-black! I will obey the "peeps" 'cause you all know best!!

Look at this edging...Isn't it grreat! I love the Coron 120 (Japanese) and this is Fiordaliso, the book found at Lacis

Podcast #16 is being loaded. Hope you forgive me rambling on. I was in a really good mood so had to talk about it!! See/hear from you soon!!

Ya think it'll float?, AND "cast 15!

Sounds like a David Letterman Will it float episode. Bradley is making a boat for the Pirates/Caribean theme for the Prom this year. We have threatened my DD that after it has been used at Prom we are going to take it for a "ride" down the Shenango River to see if it will float. DD gets in first then we see how far she can go. Seriously, I think the darn thing could float!\

He did not use any plans...just made it up in his head...A vVERY scary place, his head!

Episode 15 notes;

Where I talk about how great podcasters are. "cept me! Recorded the episode 3/28th.

Tidying up the basement...what a mess it gets to be! I am such a procrastinator it is revolting! I did find the photo's don't know why but they weren't actually lost I just couldn't find them? I was soooo happy to find DD #1 and her babies!! I had had such a nice pic I was sad to lost it!

The yarns I mentioned:

The blue is much darker in real life Jitterbug 118 and the purple is Socks that Rock Jubilation
The others are the "ones that got away"...Cascade Yarns Pearls in 9843 purple. This is the one DD thought was icky and would net let me send to Darlene. Sorry Darlene!

And the manly colors from Panda wool that DH will never see! Ah well...they will look good on me!

"Where you at?"

Arlene Tats and Knits at the blogspot site that'd be here folks! Ha ha
