Just an update

Well, I'm still trying to figure out the frame color for Magical Night. We're thinking pink. The problem with pink is that I will have to go to a frame shop to order the frame and it will cost more money.

I have not started the tomato socks yet. I have not even wound the yarn.

I am almost halfway done with Fire. I don't know why I started with the top half. This is making it harder. If I put the beads on, I won't be able to use the stand and I'll have to hold the frame. I've decided on the frame color -- brown.

There was a comment on the radio this morning about how it was to be about 90 today and how people believed that it wasn't hot until it got over 90. Sorry, 90 is plenty hot.

I had a communication class yesturday. The instructor had everyone give their name, why they were there and 1 true and 1 false statement about themselves. They rest of the group had to figure out which was true. They guessed mine wrong. I said "I have a degree in accounting and I spin."

On a plus, we are done with camp for the year.

There is still no budget and we begin work on the 2010 budget next month.

Some motivation please?

I haven't gotten either Magical Night or Carousel cleaned and framed yet. I'm waiting for an opinion on Magical Night -- for the frame color that is. I did buy some backer board. I wonder if I have enough dental floss....

Fire Element progresses. It would be progressing better if I hadn't run out of #4 braid in color 61. And I don't need that much. I hate having to order just one tiny spool of braid.

The budget does not progress. They were discussing it this week. Of course, they will take a break for the weekend. What's up with that?

I have finished the Fraggle socks. I decided to pattern both toes. I will get a picture up eventually. I'm having computer issues. I have received the July yarn and pattern. It has not been wound or started.

A rundown on my issues. I got high speed on my home computer. The little box is to have 4 lights. Well, sometimes I had four lights and sometimes not. This was intermittent. I notified the company via email at a point when I had 4 lights. Then, there was a time period of about 2 weeks when I did not have 4 lights. Then, I noticed on Monday morning, that I had 4 lights again. I can't figure this out.

The way things go...

I have finished stitching Magical Night. I chose not to add the moon, trees or sparklies. My fabric was already sparkly and I don't really like blending filament that much. I still need to frame it as well as wash and frame the Carousel.

I have started a new project, Fire Element -- from Enchanting Lair. It is progressing well.

The Fraggle (Ravelry link) socks continue. I am almost to the toe on sock #2. And, I received an email yesturday that the next shipment is on its way! Happy Dance!

My morning glories are not doing too well. Between the Japanese Beetles (grrh) and the idiot landscapers, the main group look like they are close to death. For some reason this year, the landscapers came through and mulched and then came back at a later date and trimmed the ugly shrubs. Well, when they came back and trimmed, they cut up my morning glories.

The budget does not progress.

We have a camp meeting tonight to go over the costs of camp. Fun.

It's that time of year,

when my grocery bill doubles or triples.

Why -- because I'm hitting the produce stands for fresh fruit and vegetables. Yummm.

My favorite summer fruits:
Black Raspberries

My favorite summer veggies:
Green beans

Do you get the impression I really like fresh tomatoes?

If I had MY druthers.....

The legislature and the gov would be locked in with no catering service if they hadn't come to an agreement by June 15. They've taken a holiday break?!
