I had Saturday all to myself. HM was at an all day golf tournament, and Son was at a friends birthday party for the day. I really enjoyed my day. I didn't cook. I ate salad for dinner. I love salad. HM and Son would not consider salad a very good meal! I had chocolate for dessert. I watched recorded episodes of The Office on the "good" TV, and of course did some sewing and knitting. It's really nice to have a day like that every once in while.
One of the things I made was a flower pincushion. It's a pattern from Better Homes and Gardens written by Anna Maria Horner. She designs beautiful fabric, and has a sewing book, Seams to Me, coming out this fall. She has a wonderful blog where she shares free patterns, and lots of great pictures. I made the pincushion out of some Amy Butler scraps I had left over from another project, but I intend to pick up some of Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party fabric just as soon as I can.
I started the Spiral Boot Socks by Veronik Avery from the Interweave Knits Summer 2007 issue. It is considered an "easy" pattern, which I'm sure it is, but I'll have more on that later.
Flair still needs sleeves. It's just too darn hot to knit a sweater out of worsted weight Malabrigo wool at the moment.
Today my nephew is coming to visit for a few days, so I baked some cupcakes for the occasion.
Just a Betty Crocker mix, but I did make real butter cream frosting. I better try one to make sure they are okay! ; )
