Oh dear, did he think you were preparing for a cleaning frenzy? 40 minutes? That's like 30 hours without stopping!

Li ,
The shawl is beautiful and I know how much hard work went into it.


I love it. What color are you making mine?


That's so awesome. I don't think that I'd haver the patience to seem all those pieces together.


I can't believe how quickly you made all the "squares". You must have been seriously in love. I find the problem with piecing is that you can't take your eyes off it. May I suggest a book tape? Kate Atkinson "One Good Turn" a simultaneus addiction.


Well, your "Whatever it is" is really pretty, anyway. Nice to know it could be multipurpose!


Hi Li: That stich and color is lovely together. That would be so pretty as a shawl or even adorning a special credenza with silver and crystal accent pieces. It is terrific. Hot tub is moving right along. We had a special platform with tiles and concret put in. The electrical is in place. I am in the process of getting a permit approval. The tax department approved it with the wish that maybe they can come join us in our hot tub. Too funny. Hopefully, if all goes well... (Not easily) none of this has been easy, we will be floating in it on late Monday. We have five cars in this family and I am always filling them up or taking one or the other to the service place. It is a full time job as the kiddies are too busy working or whatever to be doing it all of the time.


Can I say tedious? Yes, and that's why I doubt I could ever make something that lovely.


Oh, oh, oh .... that's so stunning. I love it. I don't envy you the sewing, but oh, oh, oh! I wish I could afford Noro Silk Garden sock yarn (in a big amount, not just one skein). I've just found the most perfect pattern for it. Sigh.
