A pink day



This little 36″ square quilt is now quilted and bound.  It will hang it in our room for a bit before a baby gets it as DH likes it.  And it’s nice to be appreciated.  Several of my readers also liked it.  It’s a strange thing – one never knows what someone will like – this is not one of my favorites.


This morning I decided to dye two shirts that I really like, but are a bit tired.   However I forgot to check the fiber content and because they had 40% poly, they didn’t take the dye.  So I popped some fleece into the kettle in three increments so that I will get a heathered affect.  It is dry now and sometime in the future, will get combed and spun.   It is off my first female Cormo sheep so will be soft.


Then there was a matter of someone needing a large patch and this is what I found for her.


Sometimes one just needs a dessert and we still have 6 packages of frozen strawberries in the freezer, so shortcake was made.

And because my brother is coming in Tuesday evening and I don’t want to look totally unprepared, we ran off to Lowe’s and purchased a shade and a curtain rod, both will be put up on Sunday.   I still would like to get a rug and may do that on Sunday as well.

    I too like the fishes. Very pretty dying job. Brothers like to be useful when they visit. You are a great sister to prepare things for him to do.

      Thank you. DH is doing the work. Brother will only be here 2 days, but this is a room I’ve been wanting to fix up for a long time. Now it is done.
