On the days I think I’ll get the most sewing done . . those are the days I get the least amount of sewing done it seems. Part of moving to a new location means getting a new CPA and getting all set up so Vince had asked for recommendations and found one for us and we had our initial meeting/question/answer session this morning. Then we went to lunch at a new Mongolian place in town and ran into my quilting friend, Doris, and her husband, who works with Vince and who are both from Nevada, MO. How cool is that? (Both that we ran into them in the restaurant and that they’re from Nevada!) Doris and I talk and laugh like we’ve known each other forever and the men just sit there and act like men! I think Vince sometimes gets frustrated that I can talk to anyone and anything and enjoy every minute of it.
After we finished eating, Vince was heading to Home Depot and I said “Will you please drop me off at the AT&T store?” He always knows that’s going to cost him money. Chad got a new smart phone not long before we left MO and in a freak accident, that really wasn’t his fault, it drowned so I told him I’d get myself a new phone and send him my Samsung Captivate that I got in May. Got that done and then I came home to sew and this is how far I’ve gotten with my January Palette project.
The above photo was taken outside. Bet the dirt/grass was a sure sign, huh? The photo below was taken inside so you can see the differences in the colors from outside to inside.
Most of the comments disapproved of my choice of green but I still like the darker green better for this pattern. At lease one comment said my choices were “flat” and I don’t see that either but . . that’s what makes us all different. As you know, I mostly always use brights but for this design, I just happen to love these colors!
There’s a football game on tonight – Clemson and somebody. Vince got a Masters from Clemson so I’m sure it will be a noisy night here. I’ll sit and knit while watching the game. Wait til you see the socks I’m working on now. Love them!! And, they’re lime green! And, they have cables. Thanks Denise for such a fun challenge! There were so many patterns I’d been wanting to make but it was so easy to make plain Jane socks. I’m having fun sewing and having fun knitting . . life is just plain fun at my house!
