This week he did a spin around the driveway with it.
I pointed out that maybe he should trade the whole rat trap in for a nice four wheeler. Can you hear the crickets? Anyway, my husband is looking forward to driving off a cliff (with the wing attached...I hope!), sometime this summer. Good grief!
In quieter pursuits with likely safer equipment, a few makes came out of the sewing closet. All summer weight items even though we had periods of wet snow last weekend.
A pair of lightweight natural linen pants,
a tunic with a nifty modified neckline in handkerchief linen. I did this with an upper curved bodice like the cream and yellow one shown in the last post.
The silver lavender color is so pretty. Not my usual color range but a nice addition that works well with some of the neutrals nicely. The little fabric scrap of a French Bulldog was sent with one of my fabric orders from Etsy as a sample.
Too cute not to use.
Lastly a lime green tank in a cotton voile from the sale days.
A second one in a deep salmon color was also made. I cut them at the same time. These will serve for all four seasons. I need to make one in white and black too.
Spike went in yesterday to have his teeth cleaned. He lost two small ones and had a little growth removed by one of them. Likely nothing but we're having it checked out anyway. He was a bit groggy last night,
but is back to his usual self this morning. He has pain meds to get him through the next two days in comfort.
Two beautiful books have been added to the library. The first one my Dad gave me. What beautiful sketches, paintings and text! Such a treat.
These pictures don't come anywhere near doing this book justice. The stock it is printed on is rich and lovely too.
The second addition is a weaving book. I like to add to the weaving library as I can.
The books go out of print so quickly most times and then become too expensive to add. I am enjoying the crackle warp on the wolf pup and would like to do more. This book will certainly help me have a better understanding of the structure itself.
Market day tomorrow and that means more fresh strawberries. YUM!
Parting shot: Afternoon naps. It's a good thing.
