A Good Week so Far!

 I began the rainy Monday by attempting to hand sew the binding on the quilt.  I immediately attracted a rainy day napper instead!  So of course I picked up my knitting instead...
I did manage to finish the binding and washed and dried it!  It is all packed and ready to deliver!
I knit my little skein of milk fiber into its swatch for the binder!
I made some goat's milk soap with lavender.  I used my first bar this morning in the shower-wow!  It is such a luxury.
The socks are officially finished.
I made a summer dress for a friend who had given me the fabric and asked for a dress in exchange!
Last night, I began the Field of Flowers socks but immediately ran into a problem.  The socks were way too large for a woman and since Bill doesn't appreciate flowers on his feet I had to re-size the chart.  This is my third drawing but I am ready to start it again in the morning!

    Can you imagine what Dad's giant feet would look like in flower socks -- talk about a field of flowers!!! :)

  5. Always busy, nothing stops you -- not rain, not cats, not even "too big" patterns!
