At least on my list of things to accomplish. I didn't get everything cut out, but with the accompaniment of a book on tape, I got much of it done. And stacked...and hopefully not forgotten.
I sewed up a pillow for my bed and discovered that the pillow insert was too small but I was so desparate for something to be completed that I stuck it in there anyway. LOL
And progress was made on what I am calling my Dreamsicle socks. It's yarn that was dyed with diluted Kool Aid left over from the yarn I sent my Dye O Rama pal. I'm liking it a lot. Certainly not really self-striping, but so far just an interesting blend. Oddly enough, occasionally I see a faint hint of aqua. LOL something went amiss for sure. Hopefully it will just appear as a shadow. And since they are socks, maybe nobody will be that close to my foot :-)
In other news, my washer seems to have developed a major problem. It washed just fine until the last load and then when it entered "spin", it made horrid noises and by the time I got out there it was smelling like burned rubber. Ewww. Fortunately it wasn't a load of towels so I was able to get everything rinsed and wrung out and now I'm trying to do a load of handwash at night before I go to bed. I hate our laundry...it's really kind of icky but will work. But an answer must be found because well...ya know...I love to felt stuff and I can't see me plunking quarters in a rather grungy washer over and over LOL. I looked in the newspaper but didn't see any appliance repairmen listed. Wonder if I can figure this out by myself?
Time for work...byebye
