the quilting on the turtle quilt is complete and it has been trimmed (and yes, I know, this is NOT a good picture of anything except the trimming)
today I hope to get the binding stitched to the back so I can work on the handwork over the weekend -- then I promise a better picture!
I'm working on a new pair of mittnz
this yarn has the most unusual colorway I've ever seen
for one, I would not have thought of running from pale tan through dark brown through a navy to a teal
and it pools in strange ways too
they are going to be nice mittnz though
another afghan square complete -- and this picture is the evidence that I have my scanner working again!!
for this last little while I've been taking a picture with my camera, but that doesn't give you the same depth of the knitting stitches that the scanner does
I'm happy to have this ability back
now you're probably asking -- what is that?
well, this is all that is left of our snow shovel
while the DH was shoveling the 7 inches of heavy wet spring snow out of the driveway a couple of days ago, the plastic scoop part broke
he put it in the recycle bin
I guess we can't complain too loudly, we bought it back in January of 2002 when we moved into the house, and it has been standing on the front porch through heat of summer and cold of winter ever since, and well, plastic does get brittle
the sad part is that the hardware stores here seem to think that winter is over (I know the CALENDAR says it is), but we're supposed to get slammed with another heavy wet snow again tonight
guess I'll be out searching for a new shovel today
