The colors are changing at our house. Here's what our street looks like:
It still isn't cold yet, but we take the basil plant in at night. We often get a light snow in September, but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe soon.
The demolition continues. Today Tom is putting up a barrier to keep the demo/construction dust on the "job" and our of our house.
It will have zippers to allow us access to the part of the house behind the barriers. We have moved into our guest room downstairs.
During the demolition, we discovered this iron pipe and another one. May be a problem:
Common Threads met this week. Here's a look at Karan's latest quilting project:
Her son got married recently. She passed out pieces of fabric for people to sign, and the patches are going into an Irish Chain quilt for the newlyweds.
Janet made a quilt for a friend who had to go through chemo. She's doing better, but the quilt will still be a comfort. The fabric and star blocks were left over from earlier years.
She often puts Minky on the back, and this one is no exception. The plushy fabric really shows off the machine quilting.
In the meantime, my Dogwood Blossoms is coming along:
The BO for the armholes will come right about where the sleeves stop. Then I will check the sleeve length and add some if needed. The armholes will be steeks, which means cutting the knitting. It doesn't make me nervous anymore, thanks to the Classic Lines Cardigan, which was my first steeked project. (Note: I have deviated from the pattern to make a dropped shoulder, rather than the cap sleeves. This style looks better on me.)
Missing baby photos? Here's a pic of Soren (and his mom) taken during his first trip to the Farmers' Market!
Stay tuned for the answer to how we deal with the surprise pipes, more crafty projects and baby photos.
