5 Senses Friday & Much, much more...

an almost finished baby room
aeon flux
little flower buds on my tomato plant

baby powder
smoke from the never-ending burning of this state

hugs from great friends
Alison's hiccuping belly

great 80s tunes
Jany and Ali banter
laughter at my baby shower

lots of cake
french onion dip a la Mom
water, water, water

Alison's pink and purple socks are growing quickly - I'm just about to finish the heel on the first one. And suprisingly enough, my attempts at dyeing self-striping yarn are producing stripes. Big wide ones that we love.

I went to store #3 in search of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in White and was once again faced with defeat. So I bought some Jiffy instead. Its fuzzy and acrylic, but the same weight and I'm hoping it won't stick out like a sore thumb, but I'm out of stores and need to finish this blanket. Notice the ethereal ball of Jiffy next to the not-so-fuzzy Wool-Ease square.

And lastly, remember my brilliant 'middling' idea?? I started piecing together some parts of the blanket and it's not as bad as I had feared. A good episode of Survivor and I've got 8 squares attached to each other. Watch The Office with Wayne and there are 6 more done. So slowly it's coming along.
