Modern technology is wonderful, isn't it?
I've been gone for almost three weeks,
but because I could write posts and schedule their postings in advance,
it seemed like I was right here in my Hidey Hole the entire time.
My husband, oldest daughter and I took a wonderful trip
to Europe and cruised along the western coast of
France, Spain and Portugal.
We also visited the Canary Islands and spent a little time in Morocco.
The sights were just beautiful and the memories are great.
Now it's back to reality!
While I was gone I did a little knitting.
Knitting hasn't been on my list of things to do lately,
but it's such a portable project for a trip where
space is a premium.
This pair of socks was made while
relaxing on the ship
and during the hours of flying.
I love how the yarn pooled for these.
I also decided to try my hand at knitting mittens.
This is attempt #3.
I'm not thrilled with it and learned some things,
but they will be warm.
The thumb is made with the "Afterthought" method.
Next time I make mittens, I'd like to try the gusset method.
Since I've been home I've done a little playing in my Hidey Hole.
A few weeks ago I posted about the tuffet
I made for my niece.
I decided that with some of the extra fabric,
I would make two pillows to coordinate with the tuffet.
My niece isn't much into quilts,
but something simple would work.
This pattern is from the book called
and was so easy to make!
I'll get these quilted and made into pillows
and then send them to her for her new home.
My mind is overflowing with thoughts and ideas of
projects I'd like to make this fall.
We shall see where I am lead!
Thank you to all who commented on my blog posts while
I was gone! They were so fun to read when I returned home.
