Wow, it’s Wednesday again? Already?
I must say, being accountable to my readers definitely helped me this week. What I really wanted to do, of course, was reorganize the spare room into a quiet reading room… which I did, sort of. But I couldn’t report back to you all and say that I didn’t finish what I said I would, right? So I abandoned the reading room for now, and finished the baby blanket. Thanks for keeping me honest.

And now, what you all came here to see…
Completed: Baby Blanket
This one took me about two hours. I’m obviously getting lazy – I used to applique the kid’s entire name, but these days I prefer to do one large initial. Anyhow, the turtle fabric is a jersey knit (t-shirt material) and the other side is something deliciously cuddly. Here it is, all folded up and getting ready to be gift-wrapped:
In Progress: the reading room
I don’t have a “before” picture, and I’m feeling too tired and lazy to take an “in progress” picture. But by next Wednesday, I plan to have done the following:
- put the slipcover back on the sofabed
- mounted a wall light in K’s reading corner
- backed up my old iMac and prepared it for use by K
- found, built, or adjusted a chair to the correct height for the kiddie table
That’s it. I’ll have pics for next week, I promise. And after that I’m going on vacation, so you can expect my works-in-progress to be more along the lines of portable projects – scrapbooking, perhaps, or writing some new songs (I haven’t done any songwriting in years), or maybe some garden planning.
