Staying Busy


Hubby is doing his best to keep me busy and distracted. Yesterday he took me on a morning boat ride - not our norm - it was peaceful...


Our doggies love a boat ride!

Next he took me to lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant - I've figured out I can get Chili Rellenos  (my favorite!) without the cheese and stay on Whole30. So good.

Then it was back home for a nap for both of us - neither of us had slept well the night before.

I then spent the afternoon finishing the cutting of my Santa Swell quilt - ready to sew!


I've been thinking I need a project on which to focus in doctors' waiting rooms. My hand sewing won't work because I won't have the proper lighting - I really need good lighting with my bad eyes! I thought punch needle might work, but there are too many thread changes needed, and again...I need good lighting. I saw a really beautiful needlepoint canvas of a yellow lab - nope, again we have thread changes and not enough lighting.

This scarf jumped out at me yesterday. It's double knitted (I think that's the term) so each side is the opposite of the other. I'm not a knitter. But if I can get this started and figure out the pattern, I think this might be a good waiting room project.  You can find it at Purlsoho.

I ordered the yarn and knitting needles last night. You KNOW I'm not a pink girl....so I selected a gray and white color scheme - I figure it will match anything I wear.

So I guess I will become a knitter - haha!

Happy day to you...

  1. That's a lovely scarf. Bet it will be warm. I've had restless nights lately. I'd get up in the morning and the covers would be a mess. Then I realized I might be cold as the temps are getting colder. So I put a light blanket on the bed and today, the covers were hardly messed. Each day is a new day. A song of praise results.
    Blessings, Julia

  2. I know what you mean about needing light to do projects while waiting for Dr. appt; hairdresser (dye jobs!), etc. I just take a book to read now! HA Knitted scarf looks interesting...thanks for sharing link. Take care!!! And keep busy.
