I love having kittens. They are such joyous creatures. They are also dogged, determined, relentless, and totally focused about poking, prodding, or toppling anything that catches their interest. No matter where you stash something they find it. Here is Olive in action. The blue bar is just to show you that the floor lamp is tilted. Away she goes - Yea! Team Olive! Jump! You can make it!!

Last weekend there was girlfriend visiting. Kimberley and Marion. My Celtic Festival Cohorts. It's rare to have them visit and I was honored.

There was sadness in my heart when I realized that I had let my sewing machine servicing go WAY too long. It was weird and rather hard to have both my regular machine and the serger gone at the same time. I decided that I could do some prep work while they were gone and had a mini meltdown when I remembered that I had also sent my scissors out to be sharpened. Thankfully, everything is back and doing just fine. Which is good because...

...while they were out a box of fabric arrived.

Now I can start my stealth sewing now that my babies have returned to me.

I loved the Fleece Artist Scotian silk/wool yarn that I used for the Vine Lace Vest that when I found 5 skeins of it on sale I went a little bonkers and bought all of it.
I'm hoping to make this coat from it.

These two lovely books (the one on the left containing the coat) arrived yesterday. I'm intrigued by brioche but also somewhat intimidated. I've also started mooning over Dale of Norway patterns and have a few patterns coming soon. I think I'll start with a hat so I don't just overwhelm myself with stranding.
Question? Do you ever worry that you'll die before you knit everything you want to?

Speaking of knitting: More Fleece Artist wool being turned into a top down cardi for moi. I just never get tired of the colorway or the yarn.

This Barbara Walker pattern took far longer than I had expected. I like the result though. It's for the afghan that is being made for the owner of the coffee shop where my knitting group meets.

Just for Fun.

Omar, being the smart pupster that he is uses the treadmill to look out in the garden. He noticed a young buck eating grass (OUR GRASS!!! The Nerve!!) and did a great whole body bark. Must learn how my camera does videos.

Look! Real sunshine falling right out of the sky! We have been very rainy this year. Okay, so it you live on the east coast you have lots and lots of snow. We have rain mostly so a little sunshine is much admired. Tomorrow's forecast - 90% chance of rain.

Will I knit everything before I do? Umm, no, since I don't knit?

Will I sew everything I have fabric for, or acquire fabric for? Well, if I make the rule that I can't die until I finish all my sewing, why, I shall live forever!

Does this make me a Sewpire?
