More sewing this week – another little dress for Izzy:
Although I’ve mentioned that my class this semester is "hard", in that I’m impatient to get through it, the work is not terribly demanding. There’s not as much reading as some classes, so it does leave me lots of free time. I spent last weekend doing some rearranging in my sewing room, so now things are a little more organized and I can enjoy my sewing.
This is not to say that knitting has totally taken a back seat. I’ve made quite a bit of progress on the back of Torgier:
This is an Elsebeth Lavold design, in Silky Wool, for hubby. I do love the Silky Wool and I think hubby will like its lighter weight.
I’m getting very excited about next weekend! Lorette has invited me for the weekend and a visit to the Madrona Fiber Festival!! Kris from Sonny and Shear will also be visiting from Orlando. John and Lorette are the most gracious hosts and I am really looking forward to it. The best part – Maggie has been invited too! John said he would be willing to puppy sit while we attend the fiber festival. She can play with Riley and Lorette’s new corgi – Llewy. This should be quite interesting. I cautioned Lorette that Maggie is pretty well behaved around here, but she is a puppy still, with puppy manners. But she said to bring her along. We’ll see if I ever get invited back after this. This should be a good experience for Maggie. We really want to get her used to traveling and this is a perfect opportunity to visit with some dog friendly company.
Maggie is excited, but for now has other things on her mind. Who is this other puppy and why won’t she play with me?
