The past two months have just flown by! We finally got the house ready to be listed and it’s been on the MLS for a couple of weeks now. No visits from prospective buyers yet, but August is notoriously slow for home sales. We have an open house scheduled in early September, so hopefully we’ll get some traffic then. If not, I may have to put an ad on my cat!
The first weekend I wasn’t doing house projects, I finished my mom’s birthday quilt.
I hope she likes it, it’s a smallish lap-size and I tried it out while hand-stitching the binding – worked well for me!
This was my first time to use polyester batting and I really like it! I used hi-loft and it gives the quilt a nice poofy, bouncy feel.
Knitting has really fallen by the wayside. Everything I was working on requires constant pattern referral and/or charts, and I’ve given up the loveseat to SB while he recuperates from bunion surgery. I’ve been sitting in the arm chair, which isn’t large enough for me and my papers. He’s 3+ weeks post-op, though, so I think it’s about time I reclaimed the loveseat! I have been spinning though, and will post yarny pictures soon.
Ciao for now!
