Rainy Day Activities!

 It has been a rainy weekend-very unusual for us to have rain all day let alone three days in a row!   Bill mixed up some cement to fill in the hole where the old power line pole used to be.
 It filled in nicely and then cooler weather gave it some good drying time.
 I was digging around in the sewing room and found this pile of preprinted Autumn vests which I cut out,
 I pulled the linings out of the stash and had fun putting these to rights all day.
 I think this one is my favorite.  I like the scenery.
 I finished this pair of Nordic mittens for Bruce-I enjoyed this knit so much
I immediately started another pair!  
(Bruce's pair is a free pattern from Ravelry called Andalus Mittens and the new pair is called Icewine Mittens.)

lovely mittens, thanks for the links, I just fell in love with the joie de printemps from the same designer:)) and I think it's very fair that you get rainy weekends like that as well:)) we don't want to keep them all to ourselves over here....

We had rain nearly every day for two wekks so it was great to see the sun yesterday!

Looks like a great cementing job.

Lovely mittens. I fell in love with stranded colour work again when I took an intarsia workshop at Camp! LOL

I am so in awe of how industrious you and Bill are. Great job filling that hole. Love the finished mittens and will be reading with anticipation for the finishing of the ones just started!
