Amy picked some flowers and asked for a vase to put them in.


Two neighborhood kitties paid a visit. There was much hissing — from our kitty. The outside ones were cautious of her but seemed to want our attention — perhaps they smelled her food.


Sweater progress. I tried spacing the front increases evenly across each increase row, but they still ended up rather stacked — I’m going to rip back that much and stack them on the sides just in front of the armhole instead.



I got a $0.75 bag of largish checkers at the thrift store the other day. They came with what I thought at first glance was a cloth mat, but it was thin cheapie plastic. I happened to have black and red/white striped fabric lying around, so I made my own cloth mat. In my research into quilting (I’m going to attempt to make a quilt for Amy) I learned about strip piecing, and that made this project go so quickly. Now I just need two more red checkers and three more black ones.
