Hi everyone. We’ve been feeling better this week. I managed to finish knitting the hat to match my neck warmer. The hat pattern is the Benefaction Hat, a free pattern by Knit Picks. I modified it, as always. No stripes for me. I’ve started on the fingerless mitts now.
It’s been a busy week with lots of people. We’ve had a lot of company coming and going. I spent Tuesday baking and hosting a games night for our young friends.
I’ve been mentoring a young lady who is going to be a vendor in a craft and bake sale this weekend. She is quite excited. We spent yesterday here baking…she baked, and I coached her. Truth be told, she knew how to do it. She just needed the recipes! She spent today baking at her home. We are ready to go. Due to bad weather her mother is stuck in another city. We offered to help out in this case. Should be a fun, but long, day tomorrow. Hopefully her mom will be home before the end of the sale to see her daughter in action.
I sold a couple of big furniture items this past week, which has made for a busy time here. We’re taking furniture apart, moving it between floors, and then reassembling it. Slowly, but surely, we’re whittling down the mess in this house. Suddenly I realize how crowded this house has been. I don’t know what I’m going to do in the next home. I simply have to decrease the amount of hobby stuff I have!
We had an in-depth conversation today about how heavy certain items are and whether to sell them or move them. The old IKEA bookcases came up. They are heavy and cost a lot to move. But the new IKEA bookshelves aren’t as sturdy. This is a tough call, because sometimes the older ones aren’t strong enough for my needs! If we had to put them in storage as well as move them, well, it just wouldn’t be worth it. On the other hand, what would we replace them with?
I changed my Instagram account from private to a business account this week. If you’re looking for more information on my rug hooked items you can check over there. Also on my Facebook account. Search for JLT Studios in both places.
