a break in the action

After many days of swimming (beach, ponds, stream, friends' pools), outdoor performances (Aztec Two-Step; a Macbeth show that got rained out but we enjoyed the pre-show Ecofestival anyway; and Talcott Mountain blues fest),...
free movies (Silver Screen, Bookworm Wednesdays, and cashing in a xmas gift card for HP flick), and spectacular skies as intermittent sprinkles and storms rolled through,...
it's time for again embracing the good stuff waiting for us at home. We've been (happily) socializing non-stop for a while now, but I'm working extra this week and Jesse has a bit of a summer cold, so we're now (equally happily) spending more time with our library books, back yard, and projects at home.

Leah recently joined a children's textile arts online group. In between the fingerless gloves/gantlets she's been making (pics to come soon), she's also doing the monthly knitalongs through that group. Each day they send a few more rows of a pattern that can be knit in cotton as a dishcloth/washcloth/lightweight afghan square or, as I did with the Dragonfly and His Food pattern above, knit in wool as an afghan square.

Thanks to Lori at Of Faith and Fiber blog for including me in the Rockin' Girl Blogger awards! I don't do orange, but her Socks Formerly Known as Sizzle most DEFINITELY rock!

Hi Debbie

Sounds like you have been enjoying your summer. We've been busy (as you can tell by my lack of blog posts). Working alot more than usual. Ick!!!

Anyway, do you have a link to the textile group that Leah belongs to? I thought Nicole might want to check it out. You can e-mail me at magnicmax@cox.net.

Hi Debbie, I'm glad to see someone else under the age of 75 enjoys the Silver Screen shows at the movies. A dollar for popcorn and a great old movie. The best!

Hope all is well. I started a new job at the Marlborough Library!

Coffee sometime?
