My Veteran's Day Post
It is a disappointing morning here. The gift pillow I have been working on had to be completely ripped out because my guage was way off. Thus, the pile of black yarn on my couch. It could be worse, I could have been a lot farther along than I was. In better news, I finished the body of the bunny. I have sew it together and add arms and ears.
Has anyone looked at Woolgathering? I am thinking of subscribing and am wondering if it is just the pattern or if there is an article or something along with it. I suspect it is just the pattern. It started out as Elizabeth Zimmerman's newsletter.
Yesterday I went shopping. I got some fun things. Fun fabric. It's for my sweet husband. I am going to make him a quilt for either christmas or his birthday depending on when I finish it.
In other news, the snow line has dropped dramatically here. No snow here, but yesterday the mountains had just a bit of snow on the tops. This morning the snow is down very low. I was amazed at the change over night. It rained all night here.
Today is Veteran's Day. A day to remember the people who have been killed in the name of stupidity, pigheadedness, and downright evil. Name me a war that DIDN'T include all of those ingredients. My Grandfather was in World War I and was fortunate enough to be kept in Canada as a hospital guard instead of going off to be gassed in the trenches. He got to see the horrors of the war every day. Men that would never breathe properly again, men who lost arms or legs. And he was fortunate not to be one of them.
Now that everyone is depressed from reading the last paragraph, I am going to off to bake the tastiest pumpkin cake I have ever seen..... Yum.
