I decided to try them out pronto.... and grabbed this piece of scrap linen and sewed up the sides. Smooth sailing, and no nasty language.
Well, we're going to some friends home tonight for dinner. I like to take my favorite luscious and cheap wine, Mad Housewife!
I'll use my new somewhat shabby little linen bag as an alternative to a paper sack to deliver the wine in.
Yesterday I finished hooking my teapot welcome rug. I haven't thought of anything cute to name it yet. It's one of those projects that I wasn't just real excited about, but the colors worked out so beautifully that now I'm just thrilled with the results! This combination is very much "my colors".
Skip To My Ewe.
It's easy to get wool from Tammy because we live in the same town. Lots of fun looking at wool, drinking coffee, and discussing upcoming projects and adventures. I'm going to do my first crocheted border on this one. I got a lovey print that blends nicely with the rug. I don't want anything too strong that makes it look outlined. Just a pretty soft crochet. I'm so excited to do this!
Oh dear, I'm somewhat embarrassed to show you this, but I couldn't resist running out to get more sock yarn.
I was over at Primitive Spirit
reading Karen's blog and she had a picture of her hand knitted socks. Well, before the day was over, my friend Ann and I had driven out to this wonderful little knit shop outside of town and purchased some new yarn. It's like just the picture puts this suggestion into my head and I HAVE to knit socks! I know it's about keeping my hands busy when I'm not hooking or doing other things. I can't just sit and visit or watch TV without doing something. I do really like this color pattern.
Enough for now. Enjoy this lovely weekend!
