Last week got away from me. I have started going to the gym again. By the time I get up, have breakfast, get out the door, do the class, run errands on the way home and get home, half the day is shot.
Today I tried to attend my first ever AquaFit class. I got there in plenty of time only to learn the pool was closed of maintenance. Argh! Since I wasn't appropriately attired to work out (I only had my bathing suit on under my clothes), I came home an thought I'd finally take a couple of pictures and get a blog post in.
After being inspired by Alda, I did some cross-stitching last week. I completed the Peacock Feather Eyeglasses case project from the current Just Cross-Stitch magazine.
I have a couple of other cross-stitch UFOs that I could fairly easily complete in short order and will get at them.
I have knit a hat for my entry for the 2013 Brooklin Fair. I have not had very good experiences entering my hats/tams in the fair in previous years. However, I did see this pattern, the Arabesque hat, from the 2011 Interweave Knits Accessories issue, and was intrigued with the horizontal cable work.
I bought yarn at the Knitter's Frolic specifically for this project - Lady Slipper Alpacas 40% alpaca/ 40% wool/ 20% mohair in the olive colourway.
The new headboard for our old bed arrived a week or so ago. I had trouble getting a good photo but this gives you the idea. There is definitely a 'scroll' theme going on.
We'll definitely have to wait a couple of more weeks. The empty tray on the top right is where the cat likes to sleep in the afternoons. However in the mornings, he likes to loll in the sun in the east-facing window.
