Her: making a friendship bracelet
I have paint colors swirling through my mind. Our favorite paint company is going out of business and I frantically (before it all sold out!) picked out colors for our next several projects. It’s just arrived and I’m amusing myself by painting a swatch a day so I can see each color in place. Today’s selection is “Delicate Peach”.
We had tuna salad for breakfast, which contained “Q-mummers” (cucumbers), one of my favorite baby words at the moment.
This is what life really looks like here right now! Always food in progress, always dishes in progress, clothes drying, the latest projects unceremoniously scooped from the dinning room table and dumped on the ironing board- which never seems to get put away, boxes of next-size and season up kids’ clothes sitting about, waiting for me to finish sorting them, people everywhere; hectic, cluttered and full.
Goodies in progress for the shop. One of the things keeping my hands so full of late.
I managed to leave the house wearing all clothing I like! Of course, we don’t have a full-length mirror, so photos of myself are uhm, educational.
A day of gathering supplies: for the shop, for upcoming birthdays, for home improvement projects.
He wants to sew himself a shirt.
Out past nap time, poor little love!
Back home with our bounty for the beef and veggie stew that simmered in the crockpot the whole time we were away.
Iain secretly bought Mairi Rose the tiny sewing kit she had been coveting. So sweet.
Beautiful fabrics, each one intended for something different, looking very comfortably harmonious all together.
Stopped in at Goodwill, hoping to find a bunch of mugs and bowls. We’ve broken so many lately. All it yielded was a single specimen to add to my collection of random, mismatched, floral pottery mugs. And this little enamelware bowl!
Which I quietly packed away, along side a tiny 25-cent pot. One to serve Seraphina’s birthday treats in and one as a gift to add to her kitchen set. Three dollars well spent (including the mug).
Later in the evening our dear neighbor stopped round with a gift. And inside…
Just what I was needing!
