The other day when I posted pictures of the half inch hexies I was basting, Chawne asked if I needed an intervention. Well, maybe I do....
That project is not the only crazy tedious thing I've been working on. Back in December after Miss Petunia got her dollhouse for Christmas, she and I started working on a few things for it. First, we decided to make a braided rug. I found three different colors of crochet cotton, white, pink, and a pink/blue/green/yellow variegated in the sewing room. We braided, and braided, and braided. Then it sat for a while. Occasionally we would remember about it and braid some more. We filled a spool with braid. A few days ago I thought we should start stitching it.
We take turns stitching; I go around the corners but she is pretty good at stitching on the straight sides.
Other noteworthy items:
- M now has a triathlon racing bike and fancy shoes clamp to the pedals. I'm too old for that sort of foolishness. I wouldn't remember that my feet were stuck to the pedals and would fall over at stop signs. We went to the high school track where he tried it out and Miss P gained a little confidence on her two wheeler. The track was a big hit; it's much easier to ride there than on our dirt/gravel driveway.
Miss P's baby celebrated her first birthday (again).We'll use any excuse for a cake around here. P and I also made a baby gown for the baby as a birthday gift! Fun times.
A couple of evenings last week we went up to the lake to try to beat the heat and get cooled off at the end of the day. Friday, the lake water was so warm it was like swimming in bath water - not as refreshing as I had hoped but still fun because we all went together.
What fun family things have you been doing?
