The beauty of spring Tulips at Utica Square, Tulsa Oklahoma
This week has been a busy one. But that’s the way I like it..... part of the time.
Monday we had business in Tulsa that took most of the day. We did get to go out and eat which was a bonus. Other than that it was pretty much just a full day of just taking care of stuff. Was going to go to Costco, but my hip was bothering me so we put it off.
Tuesday I didn’t have to go anywhere other than I needed to get to the store and the post office which I’m glad I did because I purchased two of the last ferns I needed for the front porch and I got some happy mail.
I had ordered some yarn, like I really need anymore, but this was in cotton or cotton linen blends. Something I don’t have any of other than that to make wash cloths out of. I figured I was going to try a few different brands and see which ones I like the best for summer tops. This box here came from knit picks.
Otherwise, most of my day consisted of cleaning. But I went at a slow pace because I wanted to take it easy on my hip. It was feeling better.
Wednesday my dad and I both had doctor appointments. So usually when that happens, it’s pretty much another all day event at least six hours, over an hour of it is driving to and from my dad’s house. I took a sock WIP with me and was able to work on heels, which it seems to be what I had gotten stuck on. I’ve been making some good progress. It is Sunday as I'm writing this, but I’ll go ahead and show you what I have done for the whole week as far as working on the socks WIP’s
These 2 pairs I finished the heels, so now it's a matter the foot and toes. Also completed this half of the pair.
A little lace work on these shortie socks.
Thursday was "the man of the place" turn to have a doctors appointment, so again we went to Tulsa. After that we went by Goodwill and I just happen to find just one item but it was a good one. It was a pair of circular needle that were Addi's, which is a good brand. Got it for $1.99 when they’re regularly 20 something in the shop. Then after that we went to Costco after putting it off Monday. I did just fine, had no problems. Then I wanted to share what I’ve also been working on besides knitting in the evening. That is a wallhanging that I started oh my gosh at least 10 years ago.
This one I have been in love with since I started on it. I just enjoy working on it so much.... I don’t understand why it’s not done. I’m going to do some of the last embroidery on it and then after that will be the quilting
Friday and Saturday we stayed home and spent a good portion of each day getting more planting done. I feel like I'm behind on some things but things are growing along just fine.
Here is just a couple of the pots, everything is grown in pots this year.
We are getting a little slow start to warmer temps around here and that’s OK by me. Soon enough it will get hot and humid.
Today, Sunday I gave myself a break from working outside. I focus mostly on getting the snowman sewn together and you know what... I succeeded.
He is adorable isn’t he.
Now he just needs his buttons and accessories sewn on with a little bit of embroidery work, but that won’t take very long. It sure feels good to have him nearly completed.
This is the next WIP's I plan on working on.
This one is from 2015.
I'll share more about it next time
