Hi there. It's that time again. Time for me to do a little show and tell from the past week.
There are finishes again this week.
Another 'To the Point' shawl is completed and waiting to go to the church. This is such an easy shawl pattern to make. The thing I like most about it is when you put this around your shoulders, you do not need to hang on to it. It drapes so nicely and stays put.
Once the shawl was done, it was time to decide what would be next up. Not being able to make up my mind as to what I wanted to do next, I did what I always do and made these.
Yup, three more dishcloths. This finished up the skein of Sugar Colorwheel Cotton I had started on a few weeks ago. Please excuse the cruddy photos. I took them late at night with very low light.
Once all of these was done, I decided it was time to get the puzzle completed so I could have the dining room table back again.
This was such a fun one to do. Took me back to my teenage years.
I still did not feel like casting on anything new. So, a decision was made to do this.
Yup, a cross stitch project. This one has been hanging around for a few months and I just thought it would be so much fun to make. I am a bit further along than this photo shows but not much. Last night, I discovered I was able to watch TV and work on this at the same time! It was more like glance at TV, concentrate on stitches while listening to TV.
Today is 'make Luna's dog food' day. I have the chicken cooked and am getting ready to shred it. Then I will be off to the store to get the veggies for her (and us). I still have brown rice to cook for her (thank goodness for an instant pot) and then mix it all together and freeze it in meal size bags. It isn't hard to do, just time consuming. Yes, I love my old lady dog that much.
As for the remodel....................The counter guy came out this past week and measured. Looks like installation will be either Thursday or Friday this coming week. You can not even imagine how excited I am to get this done and everything put away so I can have my bedroom and craft room back.
We have pool people coming today to set up a pump to drain the pool. Then on Tuesday more pool people come to clean all the tile and do some minor cosmetic repairs. Once that is completed, we will be filling the pool again and then another pool guy will be coming to remove our salt system and we will go back to chlorine. I loved the salt water but replacing the salt cell ever year or two was getting a bit too expensive not to mention the care and cleaning of it was very labor intensive. Our pool company told us we could still get that salt water feeling just by adding a bag of pool salt to our water! Who knew?
So, by this time next week, everything that is scheduled so far, should be completed. All we have left is to hire a house painter and a person to lay the last of our flooring that we have purchased. Then it will be up to us to finish the painting inside the house. Phew! I sure will be glad when this is over.
Ash Wednesday is this week. I already have been searching for my tried and true meatless meals. Yes, we can do fish or shrimp, but I really like having a totally meatless meal once a week and this is the only time of year I can get the hubby to agree to it.
What's new with you this past week?
Until Next Time......................Happy Crafting and Pray for World Peace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
