FO Friday - Almost...

This has been a very busy week but I did manage to finish a project...almost.  I started crocheting some strips of lace a while back to sew onto pillow cases for my daughter.  I recently pulled the project out to finish it.  I got the lace done this week...two 36" strips.  The "almost" part is that I still need to sew them onto the pillow cases.  I'm hoping to get to that later today.

Here are a couple of photos I took with my cell phone...



I was on such a roll with de-stashing, finishing projects, and doing things around the house before my recent trip but I seem to have lost momentum.  I think it's picking back up though.  I had a more productive week.  I got a lot of yard work done....some trimming, took out two trees and cut them up, and filled the huge green waste and trash bins.  And, I did some more preserving of herbs, made a new batch of homemade granola, finished this lace, picked out some patterns and wound some skeins of yarn into balls.  It's not as much as I'd hoped to do but I had a pretty bad sinus headache one day and felt pretty wiped out for the rest of the day when I did all that yard work.

I've also needed to spend more time caring for my dog who's hurt ACL has gotten so bad she can barely get around.  We've ordered a brace that should (fingers crossed) help a lot.  And, I'm still giving meds to my kitty, Penelope, for a severe bladder infection that she had.  Penelope is feeling a lot better.  Yay!  Now, to get Salsa feeling better and bouncing around again like her usual self!  I've been giving both of them lots of extra love and attention.

There's a fiber festival this weekend that I'm planning to go to with my daughter.  That should add a little extra inspiration for getting back on a roll with projects.

Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the crochet edging it is a delight I am looking forward to seeing it on a pillowcase.

I'm so glad the kitty is feeling better! I hope that infection gets completely wiped out and never comes back. And I hope your pup feels better soon...it's tough to keep a bouncy dog still long enough to heal.

Hugs to the pets, I had a cat, Megan who had constant bladder infections, bless her, she was a rescue and it must have been a last legacy from her previous life, mind, she lived to be around 23 so...... Hope the brace helps the dog. Love that lacy pattern.

Very pretty! I still have my Grandmother's crochet samples...She crocheded miles and miles of pillow case lace. Hope everyone in your household gets telling well soon!

I think it is inevitable that we sometimes lose momentum with projects/activities but it will come back. Your lace is very pretty. Enjoy the fibre festival
