Shower done!

I got to take the new tub/shower for a "wet" run.  Meaning I took my first BATH in probably 20 years.  So nice and CLEAN.  The new hardware works wonderful.  Foot friendly.  Can turn it on and off with a  The handrail is a new idea for us and it was very useful.  Had to finish quick because Jerico will be home tomorrow and the shower rod should "MAYBE" beat him by a few hours. 

Next is the rest of the walls and plumbing.  The old plumbing is a rusty nightmare.  It will be wonderful.
Thanks Bill!!!

Flamingo Mitts for Laurie

My niece has a thing for Flamingos like I have a thing for frogs.  I have them out blocking.  I can see I need to shift one of the thumbs.  I actually put the thumb in the same spot but made it so you could wear them on either hand.  I like the colors finally. Tore them out 3 times.  First to change the pink and second because they were to small/tight.  Hopefully these work and Floyd (her plastic flamingo) will approve and allow her to wear them!!!

Another day Snowing

Posted by Picasa
Lots of knitting happening.  On my 3rd go 'round on the flamingo mitts.  One nearly finished, #2 about half way.  Ya, I know I usually knit both at once but I didn't have long enough needles.

Also, making a potato chip scarf.  Out of a Noro looking acrylic in hot pinks to purple. I usually only work on it at "Church of the holy stitch" meetings cuz I can't gab and knit at the same time.

Yes, I am enjoying the snow...hanging out in my PJs. So far, we still have power and I did manage to go grocery shopping yesterday so....we're good.

Bills latest Project.

New plumbing and new tub surround in the works. Quick before Jerico get home from work. He should be home in 3 weeks. Hard to believe how clogged the old plumbing was. Its a wonder we had any water flow at all.

Pyrography....woods a fiber?

I asked for a wood burning set for my Birthday.  These are 2 of the ornaments that Bill made on his lathe and I decorated.  One now belonging to my friend Pearl, who got it in an ornament exchange.

I've also done a few boxes and several bracelets that Bill made.  Lots of fun!  I can see that I'm going to have to clear my old pottery studio out do this in.  Not the best smell for "in the house".

On knitting.  Working on Jerico's sweater, Laurie's mitts and a potato chip scarf.  Pictures when I finish the scarf.
