The something old is Me. I turned 65 and I feel it in ever bone and muscle in my body. Whoever said these are the Golden Years is full of you know what. It's more like the Tarnished Years in my house. Hubby is doing good. We had a visit to the Infectious Disease Doctor and and he wants some labs done to see if the meds are working. Let's pray they are.
I have an update to show you and some new things I've started. I also was in a yarn buying mood and came across 2 that I just couldn't live without......you know how that goes, right?
First off is an update on Snow Days. I have the house all finished so that makes me feel like I've accomplished something. I just love how this is turning out.
My sister in law in Pa. has a friend who came down here to visit with them and requested that I make her a purple shawl. I had two yarns in my stash that I think will make a pretty nice shawl for her. They are a dark purple and I don't know if you can see in the picture, but the one in the back has a gold thread going thru it. I'm going to use that yarn down around the bottom of the shawl to give it some pizzazz.
Then the two yarns that I purchased....
This one is a hand dyed yarn that I purchased on Etsy from Knit Circus Yarns. If you like gradient yarns, she has some fantastic color combinations but the name of this one is what drew me to it....
La Vie En Rose.
This one is a Louisa Harding yarn called Pittura and the color is called "Monet". Trust me, the picture does not do this yarn justice. The colors are like jewels and it's just stunning.
I was brushing Vallie tonite and found 2 fleas on her so off she went to get a bath. She hates being blow dried but since it was close to bed time I made her do it. She's laying here not looking very happy at her mommy right now.
I am making some more of these small project holder bags. I find they are perfect for holding all the threads, buttons, scissors and anything else you need to stitch a project.....and they don't take up alot of room. It's hard to see but I embroidered my monogram and some flowers in green to match the green flowered fabric.
Well that's about all that's going on in my world lately. I suffer from depression and for some reason, these last few weeks have been terrible. All I want to do is sleep and that's not good so I make myself go places even if it's only to window shop. Peyton is busy packing up for their move in a few weeks so I don't want to bother her. They are actually moving closer to us so I'm very happy about that situation. Depression is a very crippling disease and I hope none of you suffer from it.
Have a fantastic weekend with family and friends and stay safe...
