It's been a while. I have taken a break from the yarn bomb tree. I have a piece in progress, and will probably post it tomorrow after I figure out what I'm going to do.
It's been a busy week. First, our refrigerator died. It isn't that old, but apparently there's a class action suit against LG for this model. It is discontinued, and has problems with the compressor. So, we bought a new Samsung one, which was delivered yesterday.
We also had some branches taken down from a very large maple tree. The branches were starting to look like they would probably come down in a good wind or ice storm. So, we had them taken down.
You can see two of the cut points above. We also had two dead trees taken down. The company was very professional and unbelievably fast. It was all done in about an hour! Everything was either put in a chipper, or hauled off.
To those of you who said that basil is hardy and mine would come back after a cold night, you were right! This is starting to thrive again.
My rose bush is starting to droop with weight, so I relieved it of some of the blooms. Aren't they lovely? I think that this is their best year. And my father's prism captured the morning sun to give a cheery spectrum effect.
After a few false starts (translation: No mojo, kept messing up and ripping out) I am finally getting somewhere with my shawl.
This gradient is going to look perfect, I think.
Have a great weekend!
