My week long back and forth to Daughter's house is finally over. Whew....I went through many, many bags of kitty treats. They know a sucker when they see one.
I think they will be happy to see the end of me for while. I am not as patient with the grandkitties as Daughter when it comes to them sitting on my clean dishes....ahem.
I've been busy making Daughter some kitchen linens just for my kitty sitting visits. Paper towels don't cut it and I'm not a fan of dishwashers.
Of course I had to stop into the craft store once again on my last trip up. I found some soft purple yarn for the Purple Hat Project that Kathy B wrote about. I'm not promising anything but I am going to give one a try.
More Aida. I gave up on my plan for a giant sheep sampler so the Sheep Virtues are getting their own fabric.
The Sheep Sampler-which is different from the Sheep Virtues sampler got it's own new case at Michael's-$4 on sale. I should have got another one for the Sheep Virtues. Darn. For the record I have three sheepy cross stitch projects going at the moment.
I also stopped in at Ikea three times this week. I always had lunch on my way up. It's an hour and some drive and it was nice to break it up with shopping. I love Ikea's veggie wrap and apple cake. Their sparkling pear water was also delish. I picked up some clearance $3 pillow covers and a cute little infuser tea pot. I am a sucker for little tea pots. I have more than I will ever need.
I am happy all the driving is over but I am going to miss my quiet corner in Daughter's dining room. Look at all the light on a rainy morning. It was the perfect place to work.
All those teeny tiny little lace stitches were a breeze when you can see them.
I want to thank anyone who ever sent me a project bag. Stuffed in my big bags are all the bags anyone ever sent me filled with all the things I couldn't leave behind. I am terrified of being bored so I always haul a lot of things to do.
For all my trouble this week Daughter brought me home a lot of chocolate from the Hershey factory. Mmmm......you can never have enough chocolate especially when you are tired and cranky. I know the only thing on my to do list today is...to take a nap.
