|The recipes are simple and beautifully presented.|
|All veggies. The growers markets can't open soon enough.|
and look at this awesome surprise card and goody from dear friend Cindie.
Foxes (and JRT) do, after all, rule!
I'm told Ikea is keeping DH gifts hostage and I'll share the new yarn containment cabinets as soon as they arrive and are assembled. Today though is a little shopping spree at the Webster's.
I did manage to get a perfect fit on the Indygo Junctions Asymmetrical Tunic pattern.
This would be Version 3.0, complete with inseam pockets. This will work as a jumper too BTW which is how I'm wearing it out today!
I used a mid weight Japanese linen/cotton fabric I had bought last spring. I had a hate love relationship with this fabric over the last year, but now that it is made up, I not only love the fit and feel of the garment, I'm loving the fabric pattern all over again.
I was on an Indygo Junction roll. I wanted to raise the neckline on this Urban Tunic.
It was just too low for me to feel comfortable in, so I did a summer version with a substantially raised neck and am MUCH happier with the pattern.
It also offers a boat neck but I know very few people that one is particularly flattering on. Certainly not me! The grey linen pants are a new addition to the closet also.
The usual amount of cutting went on and very little weaving. This next week is going to be busy. My Mom's big move from cottage to apartment happens. There will be packing for a day or two and then the unpacking. We have pared down a lot. Some rugs and artwork will be coming here, and the rest with her. Busy, busy so if I don't touch base next week, you'll know why!
Did That Just Happen?!
You know I have to say, the hypocrisy is DC is mind boggling. The GOP not even giving Obama's moderate Supreme Court Justice pick a hearing for almost a year and then crying foul when the Dem's talk about slowing down their pick. Here is another instance. Where is the outrage that was directed at HRC for doing the exact same thing?
OMG, the flipping Russia thing and all it's little slimy fingers feeling their way out of what appears to be a very dirty WH. WE really do need an independent investigation and quite possibly one into the dealings of the FBI. We also need to see some tax returns, don't you think? And this all needs to be done before permanent damage is done to the environment and our contacts around the world, with like our real friends....
Let's wrap this up with something enjoyable. The Smithsonian's 14th Photo Competition. Some stunners there!
Parting shot: Post surgery R&R, new quilt and all.
