As you can see, I’ve completed the basketweave portion of the stole. I now start on the cherry blossom section. I expect that this side will go a bit faster than the basketweave portion as that required so much concentration!
It is not readily visible on the picture, but each diamond section has a hematite bead in the very middle. I am really looking forward to seeing this blocked out.
Bug has taken to playing in the car when she gets the chance. She came inside today to have lunch, and I smelled something strange. I kept thinking that maybe J came home early or something, because it smelled like him suddenly in the house. I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. Then I realized that it was Bug. So I asked her if she put on JJ’s cologne while she was in the car. She said “Yes! Because I love my JJ, he smells SOOO good!”
Announcement: Anyone who knows me knows how big a deal this is. I ran over a snake with my lawn mower. GO ME! I am shaking so hard!
