Terri and I are making the Babette blanket. Hmmm....does that say anything about our stress levels these days? I don't know about Terri, but with attempting to sell our house in today's real estate market, you can only imagine what my stress level is! My yarn for Babette arrived Friday, but was held hostage in the package bin because the key wouldn't work! Talk about stress! I left a nice note wrapped around the faulty key for our postman in hopes he would see it Saturday and bring the package to the front door, which he did. I quickly tore open the package and got my beautiful Cascade 220 out to admire! What an array of colors!
Terri and I both substituted Cascase 220 wool for Koigu, which was way more money than I wanted to spend! We got the yarn for a great deal at Alpaca Direct out of California! I orderd the yarn on Wednesday and it arrived Friday! It will take me most of next week in the evenings to get it all rolled into balls, then I'll have a nice project to work on every evening while Mr. Squash and I catch up on episodes of our favorite shows!
I spent most of Saturday packing up more stuff around the house. It truly amazes me at what we have accumulated! We're picking up a truck from Budget Truck Rental to clear out our storage room and move it over to the Squash House next Sunday. I'm hoping the kitchen will have the counters and floors installed and appliances moved in - cross your fingers!
My blogging will continue to be sporadic for a while. We're very busy at work for a change and in an effort to keep my studio neat and tidy, I just don't have much to show for myself lately! I have to say that what I see everyone doing out there in blogland continues to inspire me and give me hope for getting back to some serious quilting soon - and I thank you for that!
