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!
