Summer break is here and I am loving it!
On a whim, Gary and I hopped in the car and drove to Columbus on Monday afternoon. He wanted to check out a store there and I wanted to ride along for fun. I dug out the hexies to sew on the way.
After shopping, we ate at this family restaurant, which was entertaining in itself. I'm glad we stopped in because the whole moment makes me smile, from the wood paneled walls to the bossy hostess, I would go back just for the atmosphere. Gary said his steak was pretty good, so was my patty melt.
We had an awesome lightning show on the way home. Luckily, we drove out of the storm.
Speaking of rain, we've had lots of rainy days, so I haven't worked outside much. Some flowers are blooming though, like the Canterbury Bells and Foxgloves.
I had to pick some peonies because they were flopping in the mud after all the rain.
All I've wanted to do since school got out is knit, which is bad for my pile of quilts that need finishing! I started a new knit project that I think will become a prayer shawl for church. The reason for the knitting frenzy? I just finished my scrap yarn blanket last night and I love it! It's the most soft, squishy blanket ever. It's all garter stitch and it measures 47" x 58.5". If I remember right, I cast on 160 stitches and used size 7 needles. This blanket is two years in the making, I'm really happy it's done!
