Spring lasted about two days and summer has arrived full force. Although it did snow in the mountains around us yesterday. At the house it only got to 67 as the high. Today it will be mid 80's with WIND and more WIND. So we will have blow dryer weather for a while. Hot and windy.
The last couple of days been trying to stay busy. Working on puzzles. This one was fun. Every piece had three to six different colors on it. Also have done a couple of 150 piece ones - they take less than an hour.
Also got the Bissel wet dry cleaner out. Was embarrassed to discover how dirty our kitchen floor was. I mop it all the time but guess I wasn't doing a very good job with just the mop. I wish this has a stiffer brush though instead of a cloth brush. So now have a clean floor and will use this and the mop from now on.
I finished the third pair of earrings. These are sparkly pastel colored beads. Turned out pretty. I checked how long it took me to make just one. About 1 1/2 hours - including ripping out and redoing some. Thinking about doing one in black, white and gray and maybe red.
Think I mentioned we have another great granddaughter on the way. So I've been thinking about making her a quilt. The other nine got quilts so...I have had the pretty checked material for a long time so though it would be pretty with the little girl/lady embroidered pieces.
So I did one of the embroideries - it is a series of five. It has many, many stitches in it. And the thread kept breaking from the intricacy of the pattern. Drove me nuts. Thought maybe it was just this pattern, but tried one of the other ones this morning. About 1/4 of the way done I just stopped. Not worth the aggravation. So rethinking quilt.
And I heard from the stained glass shop this morning. They tried to order my glass but the glass company that makes it is out of the particular glass I need for my window. So have to wait to see if they get it back in stock. So that is on hold for a while.
