Birthdays and Visitor

Well friends, my youngest child has finished up another trip around the son. He is now, as he says, a preteen.

He’s gone from a sweet little boy
To a silly comedian to be

We had a small celebration at home of course, with his last minute cake of choice. He changed his mind several times over the weeks and the week of, it was changed several times in one day. “Whoopie pie cake...no wait! Rice crispy cake…actually strawberry cake”

GF vanilla cake with homemade strawberry buttercream frosting is where we eventually ended up.

We recently had a surprise visitor, if you follow me on IG you would have seen our fluffy friend who made itself comfortable on our breezeway

Hello friend!

We’ve had another furry creature wondering around outside recently as well.

Soot has ventured out a few times, staying close to the house, and of course being watched ever so carefully by “Mama” Runa to ensure he doesn’t get into trouble.

I’m happy to say I have finished THREE crafty things this week 🎉 for this year, that is a rather large accomplishment.

Potted plant cozies

This one friends, I feel took forever. I don’t know if it’s because it got annoyed having to pick bits of plastic out of it while I spun or if it was because I have been down for months. I’m sure it’s a combo. I do know it’s not my favorite.

This is from the Atlantis and Poseidon colors I picked up last year in Virginia. 524 yards 😳 happy to have my wheel back to move on to other things.

Like the romney that has been sitting around forever or you know, the luscious 12+ oz of polworth/silk braids I picked up the other week from Port Fiber. Also there is probably 100lbs of wool sitting in tubs in my basement ready to be spun up.

One way or another it will get spun up I’m sure. The days are getting shorter and unlike the last two years I am no longer working, as the resort restaurant closed. That frees up a lot of time to spin, knit, crochet, sew, and hopefully weave.

Well folks I hope you have a great weekend and we will end here with a picture of last nights beautiful sky
