I'm half way through the last repeat of Dayflower Dreaming, then I will start the knitted on edging. I haven't made anything with a knitted on edging so this will be a new experience. For a re-cap, I'm using some of my first handspun laceweight from 2006 and I believe this was started around that time.
Summer is usually when I work on cross stitch, piecing quilt tops and seed beading projects. Even with the AC set to 75F there are days my hands sweat and itch when I work with yarn. I pulled Villa Mirabilia out of the box and put several more stitches on her. This was also started sometime around 2005 era. There is still quite a ways to go on this.
I'm pulling out old projects to cure my terrible case of the wants, as we all have at times. I'm still drooling over Cupcake Fibers SW BFL/nylon batts. Duane was going to buy one for me for a late Valentine's Day but just couldn't manage it from the ICU. I've been eyeing Crown Mountain Farm BFL Walpurgis for quite awhile now. What are some things that have been giving you a case of the wants?
As promised on Friday, here's my picture of bright spots a midst chaos. I think the doily goes well with my Venetian Lady cross stitch.
An update picture on our last batch of parakeet babies. The darker one next to Mama Myrtle is one week and two days old. They start getting down feathers at about a week. We are very curious what the colors will be. Mama is green and yellow with a bit of teal and the Daddy is a powder blue. An egg has hatched about every other day. We are up to four babies and I think there are two or three more eggs. Am I a bad bird mama for hoping the other eggs don't hatch? I will post updates more often since this is the last batch of babies for quite a long while.
The rehab center called and rescheduled my interview for Friday morning. Paws crossed I get the job. They are the only one out of the hundreds of applications I've been filling out to call for an interview. I'm down to applying to convenience stores and fast food restaurants. I'm almost as sick of filling out applications as I am the oppressive heat.
