I didn't mean to take the last few days off as I did have some posts I was going to write up. But, I just haven't been wanting to even look at my laptop and instead, have been working around the house and chipping away at some other projects.
Despite all of that, I also started two new knitting projects. Both happen to be lace projects, which is something new to me. I am always looking to increase my knitting skills and these both fit the bill.
One is my first project for Camp Loopy, which was planned. Cast on was at 12:01 am today, and I was up because of a thunderstorm, so I did cast on and knit the first round of the repeat. I love the colors of this yarn (Lorna's Laces) and it is a dream to knit with. This project needs to be done by June 27th in order to be eligible for the contest and the bonus prize at the end of camp. I have no doubts this will happen.
Anyway. That's what I have been up to the past few days. I have more posts in mind to do this week, including my work from drawing class last week. We made kites (!!!) and flew them on Friday. I am very pleased that mine flew like a champ. I always wanted to fly kites as a child, but could never get them in the air. My parents weren't much help either. I could go on about this more right now, but I will save it for later.
I also won a contest that Candi was having to pick topics for the monthly quilt challenges she has. Part of the prize is being able to host the challenge you proposed, so in June I will be hosting a hand quilting challenge. More details to come later this week.
Chad and are are no longer going out of town tomorrow, so I now have a completely free day. I spent most of the day today cleaning the house, including the tasks that I dread, as well as baking, in anticipation of not having time tomorrow. So now I can spend the entire day sewing and knitting and not feel guilty about it one bit!
See you soon!
