So Many Pictures

I took so many photos of crafts and plants this weekend that I had to read yesterday’s post to remember what I’d already shown.

I completed this corespun yarn I began in February. I washed it and hung it to dry, then completely failed to count yardage before I wound it and began knitting. Oops! So, I’ll just try to get an idea of how many yards once it’s all knit up, I think I can because I am knitting it into another polar opposites scarf like this one:

One of the load of plants is in. This is the weepingest weeping japanese maple that Mr. Ink could find. It went into the garden bed I asked him to create last year to cover the gas and electric line to the garage. That little hill was eroding and I figured a flower bed would suit it so much better. It does! That’s the only plant that went in this weekend, the rest are all for next weekend when Miss Butterfly and I are gone. Mr. Ink is planning a marathon of planting that weekend. It’ll be fun to return to see what he accomplished!

In puzzle news, Mr. Ink and I continued working on Miss Butterfly’s puzzle despite the fact that she was with her dad this weekend. We did this puzzle the exact opposite of how Salpal1 suggested. We did all the fun bits first and are stuck with a massive slog of sky and roof now. It’s SLOW going. But, everyone still puts a piece or two in as we pass by the dining room table. Mr. Ink and I have begun working on the puzzle after breakfast for awhile, a nice pleasant new weekend tradition. Miss Butterfly and I sat with it quite a bit when she returned home last evening as well. I do believe that puzzles may be in our home to stay for awhile. (Miss Marja loaned us two more big puzzles for once we have completed this one.)

And, in project pan news, I ended up deciding to weigh almost everything I am trying to work toward using up this month in hopes that’ll give me a better idea of progress when I check in mid month. I am not having high hopes at all for the foundation choice though, after just a bit of extra sun this weekend I realized that I am looking rather ghostly today. I’ve got maybe the rest of this week to use it before I have to tuck it away for the summer, as I expect that much of our time in Alabama will be spent outdoors.

That’s it from here! More spinning photos tomorrow and the next day. For real! It was a lovely productive weekend, wonderfully low key. Much crafting was done!
