Am I the only one having a hard time being an adult lately? I just want to go play. First I want to go play with this:
It’s Prism Lace Wool yarn. 2,920 wonderful yards of it. I wish you could touch it. It’s wonderfully soft. I’m glad you can’t smell it. It reeks of smoke. I won’t tell you where I got it, but if the seller happens to read my blog, shame on you! I didn’t complain because I want this yarn. It’s exactly the colors I was looking for. The color is Blue Lagoon. I guess it will just need a good soak in Soak. It’s hanging outside on a deck chair right now.
I’m going to have tons of stuff to work on for Seasons of Lace. Signups are coming soon!!!
The other distraction is a quilt project. I’m participating with Nicole on a two color quilt challenge.
These are just a few of the fabrics I’m using. A lot of the fabrics are Nina Wedding by Anna Griffin for Windham Fabrics. It’s an older line that I’ve had stashed for a while. As much as I love color, I’m really liking this project. It’s going to be very elegant.
The pattern I’m using is from the current Quilt sampler magazine. This pattern was produced by Lillie’s Classic Quilts in Janesville, Wisconsin. You could order a kit here.
My third distraction is the gorgeous weather. I’m thinking I really should sit outside and knit. You never know how long the nice weather will last in Minnesota. Or, I could go buy flowers and get them planted.
I almost made the local newspaper last week. I can just see the headlines. “Woman Buried Alive in Laundry Room”. It’s all washed and dried now, but not put away. And I need to start over. And I really need to sort clothes in the kids rooms first!
But I don’t want to be an adult!
