Hello friends! The end of May and beginning of June has brought a lot of rain in our area (like most of last week was nothing but rain) which is good and bad. Good since we get some lazy stitching days while the kiddos play or movie treats. Bad because we’re stuck in the house the majority of the day, which tends to make us all get on each others nerves a bit. Thankfully we’re having a sunny, dry day today and our spirits have been lifted by the outdoor play.
I’ve made a lot of progress on the Oden blanket, I finished up my first skein and already joined the second. The second skein seems to be full of knots😔 which meant I spent much of my morning stitching time untangling and winding into a ball. Otherwise it’s working up like a dream.
This week my garden fairies came out and got a fair amount of progress. I took it off the snap frame when I walked into the room and my dear littles ones were holding it and tossing it about. So to avoid unnecessary stains I decided to just use a small hoop and take it apart after each session storing it in my sewing box.
I even found a way to keep my chart handy with my son’s easel. You know what they say about necessity. 😂
