May 28 - Slow Progress

I'm making slow progress on my hexagons, my crappy eyesight limits my stitching time to times when I can sit in the natural sunlight to stitch.   Hoping I can make them into a tiny quilt to put on top of my tiny drawers which are full of vintage buttons!  More on them another time.....

May 27 - Buttons & Coconuts

I found these fabulous buttons at my local yarn shops going out of business sale.  They were wicked expensive, much like everything else in that shop, but at 80 % off I was actually able to afford them without selling my kidney!   They are absolutely perfect for my w.i.p. Sawtelle cardigan, so I need to get knitting and finish it!  

Before I rush off I just want to thank you for popping by and sticking with my whilst I was a.w,o,l. There for a little while.  Your friendship and words of encouragement mean so much to me.  Thank you.

P.S.  I forgot to say, they are made from coconuts! How cool is that?

May 26 - Down by the creek.....

Spent the late afternoon hours yesterday down by Evitts Creek with Little J and his mates.  It was hot, humid, buggy and I swear there were snakes in the long grass watching me, but it was a brilliant couple of hours because the kids had a blast!  No pool fees, no trips to the snack bar and no running on slippery concrete. Note to self, do this more often!

P.S.  Little J caught that fish with his hand less than five minutes after we arrived!  He was kind and quickly put it back in the water.

P.P.S.  Speaking of snakes, we didn't see any at the creek but we have seen three in or near our yard this year.  Three more than I'd like!  Little J was even brave and saved one from the neighbor kids who put it in their pool.  I was proud, but did suggest next time he check with and adult to make sure it wasn't dangerous, even if was only a baby garter snake.

May 22 - Little Hexagons

Wishing I had better eyesight for these tiny stitches.  I can hardly see them even with my glasses on, but I am loving these hexies!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

May 13 - Old Glass

I'm helping my best friends 80 something year old father sell his electric insulator collection (He's a retired linesman from the local electric company).  He is a spritely as can be and has three times the get up and go I have - which now I think about it isn't hard!  Words cannot express how much I am enjoying my time hanging out with this lovely gentleman.  I never knew my own Grandfathers, and my own Dad is no longer with us, so I am treasuring every moment.  It's just a plus I get to see all this beautiful old glass.

P.S. This is an old lightning rod glass insulator with the metal spike that was driven into the side of the barn the lightning rod was on top of.
