Friday Already?

Wait, it's friday already? What day is it again? - Dory from Nemo ...

For several hours I thought today was Thursday.  Oh my, now I am loosing track of the days of the week.  Senior moments for sure.

I am a happy camper today.  First thing this morning, I was able to get a haircut with my favorite stylist!  It felt weird wearing a mask while getting my hair cut.  The shop is requiring everyone to wear a mask.  No problem.  

Since the shop is next door to a Walmart, (and I already had a mask on) I stopped in there to see if I could find a floating chair for the pool.  Everything we have is a chaise lounge type of float.  Those are so hard for this old lady to get on and off of.  I found a lovely chair that can also be used as a chaise lounge.  Perfect!  The best part, it was not expensive.  Happy camper here!

When I got home, hubby was in the middle of cleaning.  Far be it from me to stop his progress.  I went into my craft room and zigzagged the edges of one of my cross stitch aida cloths.  I also pressed it as it had some really deep creases in it.  

Once we put the house back together (he moves EVERYTHING to clean) I was able to sit down with my knitting. I am still working on my first skein of cotton yarn.


Guess how many cloths I have made from this skein, so far.  Answer is at the end of this post.  Let me just say one more time.....................I am in love with the feel of this cotton yarn.  I seriously can not believe it is 100% cotton.

I got treasures today..................again.


I used to have a single mini hook attached to my purse.  It got ripped off, from a shopping cart.  These mini hooks are much stronger and will not be able to be ripped off.  I was smart and ordered  2 sets because...............well, I am sure I will lose one at some point.


I had never heard of a needle minder until I read about it on Sam's blog.  What a great idea.  I found this one on Amazon.  Isn't it cute?  See how tiny it is?  Perfect for me since I have some small projects lined up.  It attaches to the material you are working on, with magnets.  I love magnets.  Sure wish I was the one that invented them.

Have you guessed yet?  You know, about the dishcloths.   Here is a look at one of them.



I am working on this one right now.

Here is what is finished.


So, that means there will be at least 3 cloths made from that skein.  Looking at it, I can guarantee there will be a 4th made from it too.  Not sure if I will get a 5th one or not.  Time will tell.  Come back on Sunday to see how many I finally got out of it.  Remember, Sunday is the day I wrap up my crafting week and anything else that is of interest.

It is time to sit back and enjoy some afternoon crafting time.  I would prefer to be swimming but the water has cooled off too much for me.  It will get warm again next week with our uber hot temps coming back into play.

Until next time............happy crafting & stay well!

I love gadgets too - just wish I didn't misplace them so frequently.

I like how that cotton yarn ombres. I have a needle minder from A Needle Runs Through It; she's based in our Bay Area. Mine is lasered wood and Harry Potter themed of course. The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery has cute needle minders too. Got two, one for my mama and my teen some time ago.
