Yesterday was another warm day. The high was 30.5 or 87F. Today there is a chance of showers and cooler temperatures.
Our neighbourhood had a visitor for the better part of the day. He hung out in a tree across the fence from a young couple’s house and we assume he was eyeing up the winter pears. This picture was shared so we knew this was really happening.
This is the first bear to wander in to this particular neighbourhood in the past 5 years.
Canning didn’t happen due to the fact the Spousal Unit had to give blood and was gone for over an hour and then I had to leave 30 minutes later. I did sew on a lining for a dress throughout the day.
The skirt is now attached and the back skirt pieces have to be removed for a minor adjustment I forgot to do. Once that is done, it can be completed.
I got out another dress and sewed the bottom skirt with fringe attached to it to the top part. It looks great.
I had a fabulous visit with my friend when I gave her the quilt batting. We talked about the north country, what communities they have been in, fabric stores, and more. It was wonderful to talk to someone who knew the area that we lived in for so many years.
I found the buttons for the last two tea towels and once they are sewn on, I will take a picture of all the items made from the cotton/hemp yarn. I started the Baby Surprise Jacket last night and have 11 rows knit on it. Baby yarn and 3mm needles = slow knitting. I have to remember this is for a new born baby. I did have to go back one row last night as there was a mistake. I didn’t count properly. All odd number rows have have increases or decrease or both and I count carefully.
Today we are canning pears and peaches and I have adult tutoring in the afternoon. If there is time, I will sew on the lining but I am not certain that will happen.
