I'm working today and we have family stopping in for a visit tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing my SIL and hubby. They have a new Airstream and I'm hoping to get a tour. Plus, Dan is finally getting two days off from work which will be very nice. He has been working some very long hours with a lot manual labor while I spend most of the day hanging around the motorhome with the cats.
Spinning Forward by Terri Dulong
I'm still reading this book, but since I took a bunch of photos of my cats, I decided to tell you about what the main character, Syd does in this story.
|Dusty - you called? I'm special!|
Syd likes to spin her own yarn. Her specialty is yarn made from owners favorite pet's fur. She has a technique but doesn't go into detail except to tell owners to save their pet's fur from being brushed.
|Hitch - my fur?|
|Max - Hide! must Hide!|
|Squirrel - I'm old. I'm tough! You can't have my fur!|
Tell you the truth, I wear so much cat fur and go through tons of roller tape that the last thing I would ever want is a sweater made from their fur. So, relax guys. It's just a story.
|Dusty - Not funny to tease kitties!|
Oh, and the book has been okay. It is very similar to the British knitting series by Gil McNeil. Wife finds out she has been wronged by dead hubby. She moves to start a new life and pursues her love of knitting by opening a yarn shop. Finds new friends, love, and a new life. I think I like Gil's stories better even though she makes my fingers itch to start working with a crochet hook or to take up knitting...heaven's forbid! I don't need a new hobby. Gil likes to include lots of knitting projects while Terri tends to focus more about Syd finding herself a new life and life on Cedar Key. It is still a good story and probably not as dangerous for me to read.
On The Cutting Board
I started a new quilt yesterday. I did not realize how much I have missed the challenge of coordinating fabrics to match a quilt pattern, and the thrill of watching it come together.
I just love the bright colors I found in my stash. Hmmm, I might have to sell this quilt with a pair of sunglasses for the baby....
