LifestyleI worked a four hour shift Thursday night and yesterday morning and got a lot of overstock buttons put away. There is still a part of a big box left to go that arrived Wednesday. I am sure they will be waiting for me next week.
After I got home, we headed out to the garden center to get the fairy garden. It was an expensive trip but I have one area tentatively set up. This can change over the next few days. I started off with the house, which is solar powered. A gnome reading a book, mushrooms, and fence finished that section.
Next it was a gnome on a swing and another in a hammock in a small juniper. I may have to figure this one out.
The gnome on the swing is hidden.
Then a welcome sign and a pot of flowers.
I don't have a picture of the whole thing as you can barely see it. I may have to squish it closer together.
Elliott sat on me last night and was so content and happy. I took his picture and he sure doesn't look that. He is a hard cat to photograph as he always looks angry.
He was purring and totally relaxed in this picture. Almost asleep and looking mad. He wasn't that way at all.
SewingI spent a bit of time looking for lining for the doll's jacket/top. I found a piece of broadcloth in cream and a cotton in a pink print. I need to look in the box of linings. That means emptying half of the closet out to get to them. I did a quick sweep of the store and only saw broadcloth that fit the bill.
KnittingThe second row of border is crocheted on the afghan. I have started a new colour but the yarn is thinner than the other yarn used. Thinking on it.
I love the contrast and may do two or three rows of half double crochet and then go back to the lighter blue. The light blue is a double crochet.
TodayI am off work and need to shop, do laundry, clean and sew. I wonder if I will get to the sewing. It remains to be seen.
