When the sun comes out

The fog has finally left the area and we have sunshine once again!  The good weather gave me a burst of energy to run a few errands and do a little shopping.  When I came home I spread my goodies on the table, made myself a decaf cappuccino, and thought about what I would sew/crochet next.  I still have to finish my knitted slouch hat (on the decreasing part now, almost done), and add borders to the goose tracks quilt you see up there, which I'm making up as I go along.  I really hate thinking about what to quilt in all that white space. I just stare at it with a dumb face, then walk out of the room.  Oh well, no hurry.
The oven mitt was a Target purchase, to which I added some Liberty fabric yo-yo puffs.  It was the last stripped mitt they had, and I wish I could have bought more, because I think it turned out kinda cute. 
The wine cork plant marker is a Pinterest idea.  You just write the name of your plant on the cork with a permanent marker and stick it on a wooden skewer.  I have a pot in the backyard that's still full of thyme and chives, so I plopped it in there. After I took the picture, I forgot all about it.  Then my daughter found it a half hour later on the lawn chewed to smithereens. Apparently wine corks also make good doggie chew toys. Guess I won't be making any more of those.
Luna checking out Pinterest for more things to eat.


  1. Oh Luna. So cheeky. Great idea with the corks ; )

  2. That picture of Luna really tickled my funny bone! I did garden markers like that last year, but put the corks horizontally onto vintage forks. It was cute, but when things got growing, they all disappeared in the foliage. But I liked seeing what was planted that way.
    What are you going to crochet next?

  3. Ooops, and it such a good idea! Hope they other projects work better!

  4. Fancy Luna attacking the corks! She must have a nose for good wine! I love the look of your goose tracks! That is such a great name for a block, don't you think?

  5. Luna must have thought you made it just for her. :) The quilt is lovely as is the oven mitt.
