Goodness the weekends go by fast don't they? I had a relaxing and productive weekend...and Ken, well he was productive but I'm pretty sure Saturday wasn't very relaxing for him as he continued to work on putting our torn up bedroom back together. He's making a lot of progress! (pictures soon)
Saturday I spent some time out in the studio dyeing some yarn for customers and myself. Those 3 skeins up there are going to become this cowl ,Stravaigin. I have been wanting to do some colorwork this winter, so this gives me a chance. I am really looking forward to getting started on this once I finish the Peace Cowl. Hopefully tomorrow.
I also spent some time getting to know my serger...once again. Every time I sit down to use it I have to re-watch the darn video on how to thread it. I think I have it down now given how many times I had to thread it over and over. I guess I should use it more often. ;-)
Sunday we took a drive down to York, Maine to pick up this beautiful old hutch...just look at that wood, isn't it stunning?? I just happened to stumble upon this on Craig's list while I was l looking at something else and fell in love with it, especially given that it was only 150.00. It nicely fills up a spot in my dining room that has been bare for a number of years now.
On the way home we decided to drive along the beaches of Southern Maine. It was some kind of cold out, but the waters were so incredibly beautiful! Soft shades of sea green and blue that was exceptionally clear. The water almost looked like the waters of the Caribbean if you didn't mind the blustery 5 degree weather and winds.
Tomorrow we are expecting a major snow storm along with a good portion of the Northeast. If you are in the path of the storm...stay warm and safe!
