The carpet we laid ourselves last year grew and needed a bit of stretching and kicking-our DIY guys to the rescue! We moved most of the furniture out of one side and then Mom and I knitted while the men worked. It was a complete success!
Then back at my house, this is what transpired! We are due for a big freeze tonight, tomorrow and again on the weekend. To protect our flowers, we put up tarps to make a windbreak and keep the frost off the plants.
Throughout the yard, there are these ghost bushes with a blanket!
The porch has an eerie blue glow!
We even hang them to protect the pool side potted plants!
A mild mid 30's drop is okay for a night but these few nights will be too cold for too long.
We hate to lose a plant or have to wait months to see if it will be able to recover from the shock.
I managed to grab some studio time! I wanted to touch base with some of the projects I had barely touched at their inception! I arranged these nine blocks to my satisfaction and then added borders to float them a bit.
I spent too much time putting these clamshell pieces together but I am getting the hang of it now! The white looking pieces actually have silver dots on them so it adds a bit of sparkle to this center for a quilt.
I like what's happening and while it is not a snappy quick project, it is going to be nice to work on.
The cold weather brings these guys up for a gut full of cracked corn!
Better fill up, it is going to be a long night!
The evening brought some knitting pleasure-my dyed, hand spun superwash merino for a pair of socks for my grand daughter, Abigail. She has grown so much, she needs a new pair of 'Grandma'
socks! I tell her I knit love, hugs and prayers into each stitch!
(The night is already 31F and that means a l o n g night of freezing for our yard....)
