Right now I put it up in the kitchen but this is slated for the loom room. I have just the spot and will make a note to get a much nicer pic of it.
And here is the beautiful hat kit that started the whole thing!
January used to usher in the big Fabric of Vision sale and I miss it, but while the purchases are not as large there are still some fun fabrics coming into the salon.
Hedgies and dogs both in a lighter weight linen/cotton blend.
Not much coming out this week. I started on something and then hated the pocket placement, removed them and now it is all waiting to be reattached before I can move on.
Nick the Macomber though has seen some action. The blue linen towel has been complete and a dark pink one started. This is Louet linen color way "Crabapple" and quite pretty it is!
The give-away items all left here Wednesday. Enjoy everyone!
Over last weekend Gene was tasked with acquiring a new cell phone for my Mom. My Dad, who was computer savvy, had one of the plans where you buy minutes as needed. This just wasn't going to work
for my Mom, who won't use a computer and is easily daunted by the newer electronics. Her ancient Motorola flip phone was on its last legs. She wanted a monthly bill, set price. It is hard to find simple phones but we did (a flip one!), and it was easier and cheaper to add her to our plan. Rather than have her pay us every month (how silly) we agreed a dinner out at least once a month all together. We drive, she buys. Win,win. She gets out someplace different, and we have a date all can look forward to. Gene often misses our lunch after shopping or quick breakfasts out.
Did that just happen?
Holy crap batman, it's like someone turned on a fire hose with a steady stream of something bad this week. It's hard to pick. There is so much. Gag orders, Mexico, ACA, real facts going missing and being replaced with those alternative facts. I'm flooded, or should I say .... swamped!
Words do matter. An excellent op-ed piece by Eugene Robinson.
Six journalists charged with felony rioting for covering the rioting during the inauguration.

Black sites and torture making a comeback for the USA. And Trumps calls for taking the oil have certainly put our troops in harms way working in unstable oil producing countries like Iraq.
But the one that has me freaking out is the A block piece by Rachel Maddow last night, coupled with the news that Comrade Tillerson will be appointed, career officers in the State Department being let go with no replacements and the call to Putin on Saturday. Buffalo Springfield had it right, there's something happening here.
Parting shot: Chillin on a Sunday Afternoon.
