We are having the bricks on our house repointed. If you are like me and aren't sure what that is, it is having crumbling mortar removed from between bricks and replaced with fresh. This should take care of any leaking we had from where the previous owner had gutters put on and they drilled into the mortar and cracked it to attach them. :-\
Anyway, there is a point to this.... I took today off so I could be here when the masons arrived. Well, after getting them started I could do anything I wanted. If feels so great to get a bonus day off to catch up on things. I vacuumed the layers of cat hair off the rugs, floor and furniture. Not that I would trade my babies for any others,
I do wish they didn't shed so much. As soon as the vacuuming was done a wrestling match ensued and you would never know I had done it at all.
I then moved on to finishing up a couple of things. Here is my pair of socks from Marden's yarn. I just love a good deal. I now have about 14 more skeins in 3 colorways to make socks for probably the rest of my life.
"My name is Tami and I have a stashing problem." I know the picture doesn't look like it, but my socks really are
the same size. I then put the borders on my second doll quilt. I'm really getting into these quick little quilts. Thank you to Lucy for the inspiration
which I guess she got from Dawn. I saw her post and decided that would be a great thing to do with the scraps from my Puss in the Corner
doll quilt. Just quilting to go. I see the wall going up my stairway filling up. :-)
