for several hours, we had a lot of room but about 1/2 hour before the shuttle was due to launch,
The drive home was filled with the laughter of tired but happy kids....

What a day for golf; the guys took off around noon, temps near 87F. The girls did quiet, hang-around-the- pool, read and knit kind of things.......
This one has the same fabrics, just a different quilting pattern.
I cut up some panelled Christmas prints for this quilt-it turned out cute!

Abigail swam the length and then got out; it was a bit chilly she admitted!
I am enjoying keeping the crowd happy and kntting-the garterlac has become second nature finally, and I don't have to concentrate so much to make one!

talented lady who is a designer, knitter and quilter and also a Christian. She recently held a celebration for meeting last year's goals in knitting and passed along the joy by having a flurry of giveaways; I am the happy recipient of her Elizabeth Shawl! Nyki approves. She used sock weight yarn and beads to knit this shawl, it is just so elegant! Thank you, thank you! (You can find many of her pattterns for sale on Ravelry and at KnitPicks.)

Some of it went quickly, other parts took a bit longer. Bill ran the grinder and scored the parts so Dad could remove it bit by bit.
Soon after lunch, they had three new windows installed! Hooray! Tomorrow , Dad will tackle the inside molding and finishing wood.
I finished one wrist warmer-this is for my sister who hopes she won't need it here when she visits in two weeks! Mom is making hers for herself for their early morning walks when it is still a bit nippy in the 50's. (BFL yarn with merino thrummed fibers)
The binding is on the quilt ! I laugh at the irony of this quilt's coloring-it is a kit from my parents for Christmas-throughout the years with Bill, I tell him not to wear beige and grey together; this quilt blows my hard fast rule-he loves to blow my hardfast rule; this exception only applies to quilts and not to outfits, Bill. Trust me on this one.....
We put the last screws in the second vegetable bed. Today, Bill will give me a lesson on painting with the sprayer to get them painted so ...
