It’s kidney time in CT

While taking care of the kidneys, of course we make art! Check out the paper dress she made after school yesterday.

He made drawings of the seasons and a paper hat. New rule: if you’re watching TV you have to be doing something creative.

Lately I’ve been working on # 10s and #1 needles at the same time. This is a bit strange. Generally I don’t do 10s, but I couldn’t resist the pattern. It’s a post or two back-a gorgeous purple sweater for moi! I just started a couple of new projects. Here we go:

New socks! Some lucky male in my family will get this pair. The pattern is wonky though…a straight shot from cuff to toe, kind of like those crappy gym socks we wore in high school, so I’m going back to my old sock pattern and wing it from there. Should work out just fine.

And then there’s this gorgeous magenta thing! It’s a Vladimir Teriokhin design i found in Vogue Knitting with a to-die-for cable around the V neck, like this:

It’s going to be divine!

Another thing i am super excited about this week: my clivia is going to bloom! This is the first time I have been successful with a clivia.

So I’m celebrating!

Go find something to celebrate yourself!

    Hi, Martha

    Neat pictures of fashions galore! The creativity gene is very much at work, and it appears to have been passed on to the next generation as well. Color, blocking, balance, tailoring, etc.

    From this end, life is hilarious. Sophia is quick on the uptake, and Audrey is a close second. We read 5 or 6 books a day, from Seuss to Sendak and everything in between. Spectacular!

    Vacation is already half over, as the time whizzes past at a dizzying speed, but I delight in every waking moment spent with my wee ones. See you in about a week from now, with photographs.

    Cheers! Sheila
