Wolfie always finds a way to be right on top of what I’m working on. I almost had her buried under some material but when I went to get my phone for a photo, she moved. And it was the cutest photo too, you could just see her ears.
The summer storms have started with some force and regularity, with big thunder and lighting and a small creek running down my street. Lola is afraid of these storms so she tries to hide under or behind me. She’s so soft and cute I don’t mind. Duke can’t hear much and Anna is ambivalent. The cats whine to come inside and then make themselves comfortable on my bed. At least they all have a safe place to be, and I’m happy to be able to provide that.
Besides sewing I’m learning some new crochet skills! We’ve started a crochet-along at the library making a market bag. I’ve got 2 weeks to get the bulk of it done. It’s not difficult, just repetitive, which works for me because then I can remember what I’ve done. I need that muscle memory.
Thinking about all these beautiful things today and how lucky I am to have them in my life.
All is well here, keeping very busy, and some personal life changes happening. It’s all good stuff though.
I hope you are well.
Understandably, Wolfie is exhausted after all the thrift store shopping and t-shirt yarn making from yesterday. So we are taking a break and enjoying the nice weather and tending to the garden today. Lettuce and tomatoes are growing and the carrots need to be picked.
So excited the library hosted this event today! Lots of people showed up and we had a good time making t-shirt yarn. We even finger knitted bracelets!
So, of course, after I learned how to do that (so easy, BTW) I had to go out and get me some cheap t-shirts to try it at home.
And you know what happens after a person, who has cats, goes out shopping then sets the bags down before she can go through them, right?
Yep, that’s Wolfie making herself at home in one my bags of good stuff I bought at the thrift store. I didn’t have the heart to make her get out. She’s just so dern cute.
She’ll eventually leave, since being outside at night, or snuggling with me, is so much more exciting than sleeping in a bag all night.
Now I am off to make more t-shirt yarn!
Hope you had a fun Saturday!
I did leave the window open, as it is quite temperate today and I have long needed to air out the car. Since the hurricane has passed, our weather has been very clear, as that goes once a hurricane passes by. It takes all the hot air and humidity with it when it leaves, so it’s clear and a bit breezy and not as humid, so it feels more temperate.
Whenever I do leave the car windows open, Wolfie takes it upon herself to nap there. I suppose because it’s comfortable (look at the blankets!), the car is covered so it’s not a hot car but it’s comfy, and it’s calm, as there are no smelly obnoxious dogs to bother her (that’s her opinion of the dogs, of course.)
Clean up yesterday was not too bad, I have a small pile of yard waste that needs to go but that is it. And my backyard is pretty filled in and green. It’s amazing what a lot of water will do for grass, right? We’ll see how long that lasts.
I really like the handbag material, I wish I could find more. Since I found it at a thrift store, it’s not like I can go back there and buy more, I’ll just have to hope that I stumble upon it again. Such pretty complementary colors!
