Hi my sweet peeps. Hope everything is good where you are and that you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was so so. I've been having back problems again. I've had a bad back all my life and sometimes it acts up. This week was one of those times. It's better now and you just go on with your life hoping the next time doesn't come around.
I have sad news about the Lavender & Lace Angel of Light was I stitching. I discovered I just can't do large projects anymore at all. Between the shaking and the lack of concentration....it just didn't work out. I sent everything to the lady I was doing it for in hopes that she can find someone to finish it. I do have some small projects I would like to do but I just can't think right now about doing them. I started a new shawl. This one uses a yarn called "Cotton Flowers" and it's from Germany. It is a 4 plied gradient yarn that is cotton and acrylic. It's wonderful to work with. Here are some pictures of what the skein looks like after working on this for about 3 days and the other is what I have finished so you can see the gradient colors.
This yarn starts out a very pale yellow, goes to minty green and ends up baby blue. The shawl is already pretty good size and I'm about half way finished.
Sad news about my baby Vallie. She has to have surgery on the 13th of July. She has developed a wart on the inside corner of her left eye and it has to be removed. Thank goodness they don't have to keep her overnight because she just wouldn't go for that. I drop her off about 7 am and pick her back up about 5 pm. I'd appreciate a prayer or two for my furbaby. I'll be a nervous wreck till she's back home with her mommy and daddy.
Now I want to introduce you to a new member of Peyton and John's family. Her name is Belle and she's a rescue. I wasn't too sure about her at first but she fell instantly in love with Peyton and every time she walks by Little John she licks his cheek. The Vet thinks she's between 6 mos. and 1 year old.
Well that's all the news hereabouts so I just want to say thank you to all of you ladies who read my blog. I've met some wonderful people through this blog and I thank my lucky stars for each and every one of you.
Blessings for the week, Barbara
