Hey there" here it is the third of august already!And although I seem to be running all the time I am not accomplishing very much. I have been admiring all of the knitting bowls on the net lately and got to thinking that if we had a ceramic store in town I could probably make my own. soooooo I went through the phone book and nothing was listed under ceramics which is not unusual around here. soooooo I did the next best thing" I saw my boss on facebook and asked her and she happened to know as her granddaughter goes there" sooooooooo off I went this morning and she had one knitting bowl " which I took and painted it three coats and then three coats of another paint around the bottom of the bowl. I used a glazed paint so am reallyyyyyyy excited to see it once it has done its time in the kiln. While I was sitting there waiting for my paint to dry " I thought why not kill two birds with one stone as they say" and so I called an old girlfriend who used to work with us and has since retirid. I am always planning to call her and meet for lunch and life seems to get in the way soooooooo we met and had lunch. It was nice".
I also stopped off at michaels for some yarn so I was all set to start working on a new basketweave pattern that I found the other day. I decided on bright red since the studies seem to say that babies like bright colors. I have started it and have about five rows done so far. once I get all the knit rows completed and start on the pattern I will try and post a picture of it. That goes for the bowl too. I could kick myself as I had planned to take a picture of the bowl in its various stages but there was a little girl there that was taking up my attention most of the time so I am afraid I completely forgot about taking out my camera.
Well the deadline for the friendship swap sign up is tomorrow so hopefully I will find out who my swap partner is. I am getting anxouse to get started! Untill next time take care"
