Auf Weidershen August
Tomorrow is September 1st. Isn't that wonderful? This summer has gone pretty fast, I have kept busy. Lot's has been happening. As you see, Alex purchased a truck, one he has been looking for. It takes up alot of driveway real estate. But he's happy.
Miss Mew had a birthday- she got these lovely roses from her Aunt Louise.
I saw this sewing machine a while back on Sonya's blog, and purchased one from a fellow on Kajiji. This is the Singer Slant-O-Matic, also known as the "Rocketeer"- cool, or what? I have all the attachments, and it sews perfectly. I also picked up a 411G, which is the same machine, made in Germany, for Laura, but she has to wait for Santa to lug it down the chimney.
I made these fingerless gloves from some handspun- this matches a scarf I've done. I am having sleeve issues with my handspun sweater, so I put it in time out while I did these. Everything is okay now, and I hope to finish it this long weekend.
When I'm not spinning this gorgeous BFL from Fat Cat. This is a variation of her Sugared Beets, only with a different red added.
Kitten-Chow was wondering if a handspun Turbo mousie might be in the offing. I guess it depends on his behavior from now until Christmas.
