a funny thing happened on the way to Wednesday... (you know, that thing that pays for the fiber and yarn). Here it is Friday already and I never did get the WIP-It Wednesday posting done. What can I say...

Here's the picture that I intended to post on Wednesday:

Reflection Shawl. as of 6/25/10

The shawl is coming along. The issue I reported earlier about the knit row that seemed like it should be a purl row? Totally a user error. Each of the pattern sections are separated with this knit row. Since I purled the last separation row, I went ahead and purled this second separation row to be consistent. It's a design variation, not an error. LOL!

For Eye Candy Friday, we have garden pictures. (Big surprise) First up is the last little plum on our plum tree:


We got at least a dozen this year. (At least that's how many I've seen. Who knows how many the Husband has eaten!)

And because you knew you couldn't get by without apricot pictures:

Blenheim Apricots, 2010

This year the tree developed these sap growths all over. I'm sure it's not a good thing for the tree, but they make for some very interesting pictures. Here's the end of one that hangs down about 10 inches:

Apricot Sap

Up this weekend: Some sleep would be nice! Also, the Daughter is coming home on Wednesday, so I need to get her room ready. She'll be home about 6 weeks and I need to make sure she has room to store her clothes! Out goes the loom stand, the loom, and the stitchery stand. There's a quilt top on her bed that's ready to be basted, so I better finish that, too!

I'd like to finish the Blue Hosta yarn I started last weekend, I need to clear the decks for Tour de Fleece 2010, which starts on the 3rd.

We'll see how much I actually get done...
