Don’t you just love holiday food?
Our Easter Sunday started off with an awesome church service, celebrating Jesus resurrection. I love music. I always tease our pastor that it doesn’t matter if he can preach or not (an boy, can he preach!) because the music is what speaks to me. And it was awesome.
After church we, along with A Betty, went out for coffee. There was lots of the usual banter between all of us. Then we got down to business. We had six categories for dinner; beverage, appetizer, meat, potatoes. salad, and dessert. I numbered them and each family member chose a number, and whatever they picked, they got to chose what they wanted to eat. (Thank’s to Christina for the idea. Their family tried it on Valentine’s Day.)
So, what did we eat? Sparkling grape juice, stuffed peppers, ham, scalloped potatoes, caesar salad, and fruit pizza. This family can choose a meal!!!! It was all wonderful. Did I take any pictures? Nope!
Yesterday also included some knitting and a bit of quilting. I finished my Miralda’s Shawl. It looked very small. I was worried! (That’s a secure man that will model lace!)
At 11 PM, I decided I had to block it. Look!
It’s not huge, but it will do! It does have one glitch though, which really bugs my perfectionistic tendencies.
There’s a hole in it. I dropped a stitch and thought I had it fixed correctly. It’s gonna bug me. I think I’ll just take a needle and a piece of yarn and fill it in.
OK, here are the details.
Miralda’s Shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush
Whisper Merino Lace from The Woolen Rabbit, colorway New England Red
Size 4 Addi Turbo Lace needles
The verdict: The pattern is gorgeous. The yarn is fabulous. I wish it was larger, and the little hole bugs me. I’ll give it a B-. We’ll blame operator error.
It’s so ugly and dreary outside. I have about two crocuses blooming and that’s it. Gotta love Minnesota.
Here’s today’s project.
I had the blocks laid out on the floor and the dog decided to run laps. So it’s all pinned into rows and in a pile in my sewing room.
Ms. In Charge is starting her standardized tests today. We’ll see how I did as a teacher this year. I always told the kids not to stress over them, but now my reputation is on the line!
I’ll be back soon. I need advice on a quilt for My Hero’s office. I have the fabric picked out, but it’s not talking to me yet. And I’m knitting Maplewing.
