I hope everyone has had a great weekend. Yarn has kept me sane this weekend. I woke up Friday and started getting ready to go to work. I heard a really strange noise and went to go down to the basement to see what was going on. Well, the basement was flooding. Yay!. I won't go in to all of the details. We got it all sorted out. Next on the fun list, my daughter had conjunctivitis and wasn't feeling well. I took her to the doctor and got her drops and medication. That night my eyes started burning. You guessed it. I have it in both eyes. Not just one, but both. Yesterday I just gave up on house work or anything else and sat down on the couch to work on hobbies. My eyes were burning and I didn't feel great, but I embroidered and crocheted all afternoon. I worked on my Granny Love, an embroidery project, a secret crochet project and my Sidewalk Shawl.
Here is the progress on my Sidewalk Shawl.
CAL with Everything Zen, a group I help moderate on Ravelry. Some of the others aren't adding the fringe, but I am going to. Here is another shot.
I have finished writing out the pattern for the bag I made and I will post it tomorrow. I will post Granny Love progress on Tuesday's Tallies. I will talk to everyone soon. Have a great Sunday.
P.S. Are you watching the Olympics? How amazing was yesterday? I was very proud of the British. Six golds, and how great is Jessica Ennis?
I have to mention our wonderful American Swim Team too. Our women are fantastic. Such talent and the American Men's Team? Michael Phelps, you are too great for words. Twenty-two medals, 18 of them gold.
I don't just cheer for the American team though. I love the Olympics. I was so excited for the Jamaican track and field. Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce is my hero. She beat an American to the gold. I was proud of our team for getting silver, but how fabulous is this woman?
