So, I am finally able to show you a picture of one of the super secret projects that I have been working on for a while.
This is on a Cal. King sized bed. It is about 100″X100″. It made me really hot working on it towards the end (imagine, having that ENTIRE THING on your lap. In July. In Florida.). I made it for my friend Cesar’s 50th birthday. We celebrated last night (even though his actual birthday was over the weekend) with dinner and presents. He also got a beautiful Arts and Crafts rocking chair from his wife Pam. So we were joking that he was set now that he had his blanket and his rocking chair.
It was a fun night and it was good to see everybody that was there again.
Last night Tech Support started off a conversation with, “You will never believe what I found in the grocery store here.” I should, perhaps explain, that the Hubby is currently in Sweden for work, so that start to a conversation could lead in a lot of different directions. So I made a few guesses and of course I didn’t guess correctly. So finally he spills. He found YARN in the grocery store. Yep, YARN. I think that I want to move to Sweden. I told him that he had to get a picture of this and last night he obliged.
It looks as though the bread section is just down the aisle from it. How cool is that? I got very excited over the though of being able to buy your groceries and your yarn in the same store. This is why the Swedes are the bomb. Seriously.
When I got back from the wool spectacular in New York, I had a lot of mail waiting for me at my little post office. One of the items was a clear cover for my Macbook (Finally!). I also got some Wedgewood china that I bought on ebay a little bit before I left. Let me explain. Wedgewood had a pattern from 1997 until around 2002 I think called Sarah’s Garden. Hello! I am Sarah and I am a horticulturalist. PERFECT! Of course, it was discontinued before I got married, but I already had some pieces and I got a few from the wedding and I have been hunting it on ebay ever since. Well, it’s been a good hunting season!
I got a lasagna pan.
A set of nesting serving bowls
and 8 of these bread and butter plates from 2 different sellers.
I am guessing that somebody got divorced as there was a pretty complete set up for auction and because of that the prices stayed pretty low.
Now I am preparing mentally and packingly for the next trip tomorrow. It feels as though I just got home!
