I'm glad to be back Yarning Along. Last week I had nothing to report. Not a single thing. It was so very sad. But I've managed in the last couple days to get a few stitches in and I'm feeling a little better. (Don't ask when I think I'll be able to finish the lace section, I'm not sure I can handle thinking about how long that will take.) I'm really liking the project though and my frustration is entirely about not being able to work on it more. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
And in spite of having no time to read in the last 2 weeks I started yet another book. That's what happens when, for once, Mama takes nothing with her to the library for preschool story time and baby miraculously sleeps - Mama wanders until she finds something to read. Which is not difficult in our wonderful library. So my main books at the moment are The Union Quilters by Jennifer Chiaverini and You Are Your Child's First Teacher by Rahima Baldwin Dancy. If I can't be working on my own projects it's fun to read about quilting. And I do love historical fiction. And there is something wonerful about reading books that agree with you, isn't there? :)
So what have I been doing while I can't knit or read (books)? I torture myself on Pinterest.
And in honor of my mom's birthday today, one of my favorite photos of the two of us. Happy birthday, Mom!
