It is Sunday. The Football playoffs are still underway. It was snowing in Buffalo which amazingly seemed to be worse for the home team than the visiting Bengals. In local news, the 49ers managed to hold on to their ‘one touchdown lead” to secure their victory in the last few seconds of their game.
The Cal Women’s Basketball team never did get their act completely together and posted an amazingly painful loss to Utah. I brought neither stitching nor knitting to the game and really wished I had something to blunt the waiting. In a slight balance, there was more than an excellent turn out from the Cal Straw Hat Band, so I could enjoy at least that portion of the late afternoon.
Otherwise – I have three project in rotation – the promise to my friend Shelia to put in a thread length a day on the Teresa Kogut Silhowitches which has been languishing for almost a year. The fabric is 18 ct Relic from Picture this Plus and the threads are Vamp from Leo & Roxy which that blinding green is Celery from Forbidden Fiber Co.
Then there is Heart of My Heart from Tempting Tangles – again a thread length a day. 18 ct something from Fortnight Fabric and PR-034 from Silks4U
and finally, the rest of my time goes into Fish ‘n Ships by LongDog Samplers which has now hit 77%.
