My Christmas Cactus is really enjoying it’s summer vacation on the deck. And see, we are getting new “leaves?” At first I thought it was blooming again but it is the new leaves that are coming out red but will turn green.
And then I noticed that DH’s car could be seen between the branches as he left for the weekend. I took several shots but because of all the trees in our yard, this was the best shot I got of him.
With the house to myself for the weekend I started on projects that I had put off. The first was to organized my pictures. Usually I upload pictures when I am going to write a blog and the plan was to immediately put them in separate folders. But that seems to not happen and I had pictures from most of 2010, all of 2011 & 2012 and all of this year, too. What a mess. But after a lot of work, all of that mess is gone, except, of course, these pics.
I did do some knitting and am almost finished with my cowl. I only have 1 1/2 rows to go.
However I was stopped by this. Can you see the problem? It seems the safe place I put my knitting wasn’t so safe after all.
And Sadie just couldn’t resist investigating, while I was gone. I don’t have another pair of needles and the yarn store isn’t open until Tuesday but I will have a lot to do just getting that yarn back in shape.
As you can see there has been no quilting. I spent quite a lot of time working on my HQ but nothing I did made the tension better. The top thread tensioner seems to be seizing up, the thread sticks and then breaks the bobbin thread. I will be calling HQ help today or tomorrow.
For some reason I couldn’t make myself sew or prepare anything this weekend. It was as if, if I couldn’t quilt it there was no reason to make it. However, I know that is silly so I will get back to sewing/quilting soon.
And, since I can’t quilt or knit, I think I will read. DH brought home a new book for me: The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (J.K. Rowling). So it is going to be a good week for me, how about you?
