Good morning. Goodness, I had me a burst of energy this morning and I put it to good use. By 9 a.m., I had finished my coffee, fed Pogo, got dressed, went shopping, came home and put everything away.
I had hoped to find a skein of yarn that I need and maybe some matching ribbon but Walmart just doesn't re-stock things when they run out. The craft department is deplorable and sadly lacking in merchandise. Needless to says, I did not get my yarn and ribbon, so I settled for picking up a few groceries that I needed.
Today's temps will be in the 90's and stay there for a while. I think we might start getting a bit of relief from the heat by Saturday or Sunday. No problem, Pogo and I are quite comfy. We have the A/C and a ceiling fan to keep us cool.
Speaking of Pogo, here's a photo I just took of my handsome little guy chillin' out. He's on the sofa next to me, just waiting for me to finish what I'm doing so that I can play with him.
Last night I discovered that the yarn I was going to be adding next to the doll dress was a bit too thick to use. I like Red Heart yarns, but some of their colors are not the same thickness as the rest of the colors. I don't know why this is, and it becomes quite annoying when you are trying to finish a project.
I couldn't go any further on the dress, so I started the under slip. I may as well make the under slip for the other doll too while I have the white yarn out. Tomorrow Pogo and I have to go out early to take Janice to work so maybe we can swing by JoAnn's (if they are open) to see if they have the yarn and ribbon that I need. If not, there's always the internet.
I dug into my archives to find this quick page for you. It's from four years ago, and I used Kyra's kit "From Heaven."
Here is your download link:
Joe has been keeping me updated with photos of the baby swans at our park. They are getting so big now.
Now I think I'll relax and do a bit of crocheting for a while. When I get my next burst of energy, I'll see about attacking my "clean out" project. Hmmm, I'll have to think about that!
So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
