we took the items for the State Fair in yesterday
its just down the road a piece -- usually we can do the round trip for this purpose in a couple of hours
heh, not so much
they are in the middle of a major road reconstruction project and we crawled along for what seemed like F O R E V E R ! (which means when we make the next two trips down there -- for the viewing of the fair and the pick up of stuff -- I'll be getting a map for an alternate route!!)
the up side to that is I got a lot of knitting done on this next project -- which I started in the car on the way down there
I need to knit faster, however, because I'm dangerously close to not having enough yarn in the one skein I bought to finish it --- AAARRGGGHH!!
(faster, must knit faster! -- and with my fingers crossed)
another block for the baby quilt is complete!
this is "the puppy"
the right hand side of the fantasy quilt is filling right up!
I have only the bottom edge of the big redwood tree left to attach -- so cutting of branches might actually happen today -- most exciting
but first there is lawn mowing to do
and this evening I have a guild meeting -- one that I'm really looking forward to
