I really should be writing that essay ...
I bought miles and miles of this dark green wool fabric at the op shop a few months ago. Once I lined it, it made a lovely warm winter skirt, perfect for these chilly mornings, with woolly tights and long boots underneath. It was a tad dull though, so one night this week I embroidered some red circles onto it. What an improvement.
(About five minutes after I took this photo I leaned over the log basket to throw another log onto the fire and caught the embroidery on a stray stick. It took a good ten minutes and several bad words to flatten it all out again. Sigh ...)
My spinning continues, and continues to improve. The husband of one of the women in my spinning group made me this lazy kate in return for a six pack of beer.
See how he used recycled metal knitting needles for the spokes? Excellent.
This weekend brings lentil and barley soup, the return of the 15 year old from his TWO AND A HALF WEEK long camp (I ache to hug him - after he's had a shower that is), a looooong drive followed by a funeral followed by a looooooong drive, and a marathon essay writing session.
