Today is Saturday and I have no idea what to get myself in to. Hello....have you ever felt like that? I have so much yarn....so many cross stitch patterns....but I have nothing to do.
I do have something very interesting to show you. The other day I was stopped at a red light here in Orlando, and I noticed a strange object on the left hand side of the cross street. There stood the weirdest bicycle I've ever seen but then I realized it was one of those old time ones with the huge front wheel. I was curious to see how this person was going to get on that seat that was so high off the ground. I didn't have long to wait for they got the green light and off she took. See the long bar that goes from the small back wheel to the top of the big wheel....well she just ran up it jumped onto the seat. No Way!!! I was so stunned that I was surprised my picture turned out okay. Here's what I saw:
I really have no idea how she rode this thing....yes it was a woman.
I do have a finish to share. I purchased this cotton yarn a few months ago and just couldn't figure out what pattern to use and then I came across this V-stitch pattern that was perfect for it. I call the shawl "Chocolate Covered Cherries" because that's what it reminds me of. The cherry in the center with the white/pink cream surrounding it with a thin shell of chocolate. You can see all the different gradients of colors that are in this yarn and I think it's beautiful. I own another shawl similar to this one, so I'm putting this one in my store. You can find it there if you are interested.
I did finish another shawl but it hasn't reached the individual I made it for yet, and since it's a surprise, I'll wait till she receives it before I post about it.
The Good Lord has seen to it that we have started our rainy season and we needed the rain badly so we now have showers everyday. The only bad thing is that it makes the grass grow and you know how much I hate yard work down here.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
