I am linking with Amy and her Five on Friday project. It is a nice way to sum up your week, and look for the positive.
The last two years I have gone to an art show in Tarpon Springs with my friend Cathy and we buy beautiful crochet beaded jewelry. I love what I have bought so far and wear them all the time. I don't treat myself all that much but I do this for myself once a year. Cathy found out she was not available the weekend of the up coming art show and we were both crushed. We look forward to this all year long. Cathy emailed the lovely Kristi of Denim & Pearl and she told us she would be in town for a Olive and Wine festival this past weekend. We took Little Buddy along with us and I bought three lovely beaded bracelets. I am in love with them. Now I am not sure why her prices are so high on her etsy store, not sure if it is an error because these were only $15 each, and the long wrap bracelets were her normal $35. If you want one I would email her and ask her about her pricing.
A few days ago I saw two of my strawberries getting nice and ripe. I went out this morning to cut them off and this is what I found.
Two missing ripe strawberries with some ripe strawberry residue on the ground, I think I know who is a big strawberry lover in this family and waited just for them to be perfectly ripe.......Max!
My flowers are blooming especially after a nice little rain shower early this morning. If I could pick these and give you all a little posy I would in thanks for your lovely get well wishes for Little Buddy. He is back at school today after three days at home. He lost a lot of weight and he is paler than ever but he is back to laughing, smiling and playing, hooray for that.
I started working on my new project Jordan by Vicki Chan. After a little issue getting the back and front center exactly in the center I am on a roll. I have learned to love crochet chart reading, I think it is so much faster. I love this pattern and hope it is a bit larger when it is blocked. I am already thinking of making another one, you know me I have to make at least two of something.
My loom has be returned from my SIL who apparently does not think weaving is for her. Maybe it was her teacher (me). Regardless I felt a loss when it wan't in my office/studio. I am happy to have it back right where it belongs.
Hope you are having a great day and please join Amy for Five on Friday for some Friday fun.
