Much Better

After going into town and signing our loan papers at the bank today (-we are now officially average Americans-in debt!) I spent some time with Mom teaching ourselves to make hairpin lace.  It was touch and go for a bit but two pros like us finally made sense of the instructions and whipped out a few feet of this.  Tomorrow we will try to make it into a brim of a hat.....saga to continue!

I started a new pair of socks with store bought yarn-these for Mattew.

The men got the south addition all mudded today-wow, are they faster than we could think of being!

Bill had a last minute emergency door frame to build-gratefully, the men mentioned it was odd that we had no door to our master bedroom.........somehow it just got overlooked and as soon as Bill had it framed, they finished it with the sheetrocking!  What a nice addition to our addition!

A much better day today............


  1. Love that sock yarn!!! The colors are great!

    Good thing they noticed the doorway issue and that you got it fixed so quickly!! Phew!

    Big progress!!


  2. Hooray for better days...for fun new crafting projects...for a beautifully mudded room...and for 'workermen' who are paying attention!!!

  3. Workmen who think and speak up: what is the world coming to? LOL

    Hairpin lace - is there no end to the crafts you will try?

  4. I like the sock yarn color. Can't wait to see the finished product of the hairpin lace.

    I'm still laughing over the doorframe....

  5. Not having a door would, at least, keep it clean for a while. :)

    Glad it was caught, though.

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used ...
