A Day Off

We took a day off to go out to lunch and then to a Flea Market in Daytona Beach. We laughed and people-watched and had a great time. (This is the water covered fresco where we ate lunch in the Fall and said we would have to do it again..........we have now.)
Earlier in the week, Mom and I made these beaded and knitted necklaces. I made 2 red ones tho only one is in the pic-Mom hasn't made more than me...........! The knitting is fast but stringing the beads on gave us a bit of work! Pattern is from the 101 Designer One Skein Wonders book.
I have another quilt on the frame-this one really is the last one out of that pile of flannel I hauled out of storage-I just kept having a few scraps to put together again and again....!
I bought some fabric to make a Spring time tablerunner. I think we are cutting out the fabric today while the guys work. (They are just about finished with the wiring work and are going to start on something big and bloggable on Monday!)

Got my tax return surprise-a new Ashford Knitter's Loom. It even folds up and has its own carrying case! I am so excited to have the equipment to weave. I have dabbled with it in the past but have not had the right tools to do so easily. I can now put my abundance of handspun yarns to another use! Hoping to have a finished project to share soon!


  1. How awesome to have a portable weaver!! How do you find the time to do all of your wonderful needle and fabric work? It all looks so wonderful.

  2. Those knitting necklaces look very nice. Interesting design.

    Ooo! The weaving loom is very intriguing. I think I want one but I don't have time for the crafts I already have!!

  3. Lots of pleasing colors in this post! The necklaces turned out very pretty...the new spring fabrics look good enough to eat!

I know, I make so many hats but I hate to wear them--only in a blizzard will you find me wearing one since I got glasses--20+ years ago! lol...
