Taking a bit of R&R

After all the unpacking and the big move, DH Terry and I drove down to our condo in Florida for a few days of unwinding. We had put the condo up for sale so we want to still enjoy it while we still have it. We also, had a few dinner events with friends that we had been invited to, so we thought it was a good excuse to take a few days off. Terry will teach summer school this year so we will return to Macon on Friday.

I have been able sit and stitch and read which has been so very nice. I have made good progress on the Quaker Sampler from the Piecework magazine. My goal this year is to still work my WIP's and to work on Dutch Beauty. I have a few new projects that I will add once I finish a WIP. Quaker Christmas will step in after I finishe the Piecework Quaker.

Knitted socks with fun yarn

Hi all, here is my socks that I knitted during the moving process, the pattern was an easy one to follow and the yarn created the stripping. This was a nice calming
process for me during my relaxing times. I have more yarn and
hope to knit another pair this summer.

I have been stitching a little bit while unpacking and today is
the day I work in the sewing room unpacking and sorting.

Have a great day -- Roberta
