    September 2020 Monthly Chatter

    Hello! I am a bit tardy of all things that happen on the first of the month! LOL

    Well, the kids are back to school (in person) and doing well. I’m (nearly) done with 2021 budgeting (thank goodness) and I’m watching Harry Potter with my son. For the... 10th time I am guessing. Maybe more.

    Please let me know if you have a September birthday so I can send you a crown made by

    Be sure to share what you are working on, or if you just need to chat.
    Tell me something good!!!

    I finished my block for the 3rd week of Tunisian crochet, and just loving it.

    I have ventured into making a shawl, taking things we have learned, and expanding just a touch. Here is an early peek:

    I really need to tuck in the ends. There are a bunch from my changing my mind in the pattern so often. :-)

    Oh my goodness, that's going to be so cool. You're going to be so proud to have used all of your new found knowledge on a pretty creation! It's so fun to learn (& master) new things!

      Yikes, I feel like I'd better hurry and get everything done before winter. We're down in the mid-50's at night already (49 Thursday night) and back to long pants & tops. How did this happen so quickly?

        They certainly do, I watch them at their house, so whatever they want to play is what we do. I just got the baby down for a nap. Our son and daughter-in-law are three for three when it comes to girls who fight sleep.

      Well, as much as I am trying to reduce my WIP’s, I do have two new projects I started this week:


      This is a two strand tweed with a wool/rayon blend. Both strands are light fingering.

      I pulled out some baby yarn from my stash and decided to practice weaving some more. This will be one of two scarves that I'll make for my twin granddaughters. I made one for their older sister and they both said "not fair!" I think I have the basic weaving down, not
      perfect but I'm ready to learn more complex techniques. A visit to the Woolery web site is in order

        Thank you everyone!

        I think it went into hiding when I started masks.... lol I am almost 1/2 done with the assembly. I’m glad I pulled it out. It is slow going, but even slower if it is hiding. ;-)

        I'm not much of a runner, but I would have beaten your daughter to the house.

        KnitsWithHorses No worries, we have all sorts of the good snakes here also. I'll take spiders, bugs, wasps, mice, etc. but snakes are just not my friends. I come upon them sunning on the rocks & down in the swamp area and they startle me every single time. I don't really have nightmares (any more).

        Isn't it crazy how some cameras can completely change colors? My daughter is a professional photographer so I have learned a few strategies but unfortunately just plain old good picture taking skills have not found me.

        Steph - I get the truest colors when I take things out to my porch. It has good natural light but not glaring sun. I also noticed that the background color makes a huge difference. I was taking photos of something on an orange foam tile and the color looked totally off.
