I'm so glad that my husband is home! He was away this week on the west coast for business and I missed him greatly, as did our boys.
Tomorrow we will start to put our home back together - two weeks after hurricane Irene passed through. On Wednesday the township cleared the tree off our fence & out of the yard. Jason will repair the fence and we'll move the swingset back into place for the children to play on once again. I will work on the tasks that I've ignored through the week as a temporary single-mother - vacuuming and swiffering. What did we call it before that contraption came along? sweeping - but I loathe the dust pan! I love my reusable swiffer broom/mop with microfiber pads - it's green (always good) and does such a nice job on the floors with very little effort (my kind of cleaning).
I am also going to be working on photographing a table set up for a juried craft fair that I'm trying to enter. They would like to see how my table set up would look as well as photographs of my work. I will get that done in the morning so that I can hopefully get it into tomorrow's mail.
This week I've been crocheting up a storm!!! I used the mustard organic cotton yarn to make a hat, cowl, and mittens! Each piece took more yarn than the last! Each piece is currently available in my shop. http://www.woodstreamdream.etsy.com/
Besides the house work and work to enter the juried craft fair, I will be working on finishing a project for my mother this weekend. Once that's done, I'll be working on stitching a few more felted flower pins. In searching for the vintage buttons for the cowl, I found more vintage buttons with shank backs in my grandmother's sewing kit. I am delighted by what I found and have new inspiration for creations!
I thank you for reading my blog and hope you have a blessed weekend!
