The new finish is on our Red Oak floors! Painting is almost finished. Progress is slow, but we finally moved our possessions back into the house from storage today. We are also moving from the basement to upstairs again. Unfortunately the movers took off for lunch before moving the old dresser upstairs to the second floor, and didn’t come back afterwards! Not sure how we’re going to get it upstairs. Hubby was determined to be sleeping in our own bed tonight and dragged up the mattress toppers, pillows and bedding. I helped, but truthfully, I’m not much help. I just don’t have the energy and stamina to be moving furniture, etc. these days. But I have been hauling up clothes and toiletries from the basement, and helping Hubby put the bed back together again.
I have all my sewing, rug hooking, knitting, spinning, stitching, quilting, and scrapbooking items on the main floor. My winter goal is to sort through it and our artwork. We have way too much artwork for a smaller house. We both have some we’ve grown out of, or that have done their time, and it’s time to pass them onto someone else. Hubby and I have decided it is another winter of decluttering. Time to pull out the whiteboard and create a plan again!
In knitting, I finished the Fundy National Park Fleece Artist yarn projects. I made a hat, a neck warmer, and fingerless mitts. It’s the third time I’ve knit the neck warmer and fingerless mitts pattern. I think I’m ready to go onto a different pattern for the neck warmer. I have a few free patterns from Ravelry.com that I am auditioning. One is the Sugar Plum Cowl by Leah Michelle Designs. Another is Asbraga cowl by Modish Knits. The third is the Growing Leaves Cowl by Meghan Macko. I won’t be knitting fingerless mitts from this last yarn – Fleece Artist’s Greenwich Dunes National Park yarn. Instead I will do a nice hat and cowl. If there’s any leftover yarn, as I’m sure there will be, I’ll knit another hat.
Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend everyone!
