Accomplished ! !


Another finish ! ! ! 
Another les Abeilles ! ! !
Took me seven days from start to finish ! !

This is a shawl rather than shawlette.
It measures 58-inch wing span
23-inch spine.

Now this pattern is going to the back of the pile.
Time for another pattern.

But, first here it is spread tip-to-tip.


Now a new pattern.
It's going to be Multnomah.
Actually, I co the first day of September and bo the 28th of October.
Will post a pic as soon as I get it blocked.
I'm warning ya,
it's gorgeous

` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` ` 
Also, had my haircut this afternoon.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

In the meantime, here's our first Blooming Christimas Cactus.



Looks like there are more to come.


Moving this inside after being outside all summer doesn't appear to have stunted it at all.

Now, if I can keep from over-watering seems we'll have blossoms for a number of weeks.

Today's temp is JUST PERFECT ! ! ! 
Right 'round seventy degrees F.

  1. You continue to amaze with with your talent! The shawl is lovely and you did it in only seven days?! Wow!
    I cut three inches off my hair. I am slowly working up to a bob [Maybe}.
    The weather is perfect here too! I love not having the a/c on or hauling in firewood.
    I cast on another Elizabeth Cowl. I think it's going to be my number 1 gift this year!
