The first day of Spring was more like winter again for us today! These sunflowers shivered throughout the day!
A lot of this went on through the day, too!
The weather threatened rain several times and even a few sprinkles dampened the project!
While I wasn't being a gopher, I finished the last of the 80 units for the Mystery QOV!
They are now bagged up and will wait for clue 4 this week.
While Matthew was working on the pool area, Bill was working on painting the ceiling in the family room. This room will be a bit upside down for a few more days because we will be painting the walls, too!I dashed into the sewing room
and recovered the patio footstool cushion
and then made a pillow to match.
I have a lot of this print out of outdoor fabric so I will make a whole bunch of pillows for the chaise lounges
and deck chairs in the lanai.
By evening when we had to give up on painting the pool decking because of rain, I was glad to be done with the clean-up and hit the couch, cat on lap and sock knitting in my hands!
I ran out of yarn (size 12 socks to blame!) for the second sock--so, here is another reason to knit toe-up--I unraveled the first sock at the top and used the yarn to knit up on the second until they were both the same height!
I now have a finished and matching,
pair of man-socks for middle son!
Too bad I didn't have them done before he headed home!
