I like this week’s mosaic. Sometimes they aren’t particularly colorful, but this time is really satisfying in that regard. My favorite aquas and minty greens make an appearance, with a few pops of red for visual interest…
It was a nice week. Here’s hoping for an equally nice weekend!
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Instagram 📱: Aaaand we have lily liftoff. Four of them popped open this morning.
365 📷: 2016 163/366 – I am regretting only geting a tiny jar of this candle when we were in Ocean CIty. It’s soooooo delicious. I keep thinking I’m going to set my nose on fire for the amount of time I spend sniffing it!
Instagram 📱: What a beautiful #sundaymorning! There’s such a nice breeze blowing, and the neighborhood is quiet. As long as the insects continue to leave me alone, I could be content to sit here reading and breakfasting all morning 😊
365 📷: 2016 164/366 – It’s just not a weekend without a bit of tuna on an everything bagel…
Instagram 📱: A little #knitting in the sun on this beautiful evening🌞
Instagram 📱: I am kind of crazy for this candle right now. I bought a little jar in Ocean City last month and it’s already almost gone! So I asked @surfs_up_candle_ where I could get a big jar locally, and she led me to @the_rebecca_collection, and as of this morning I have a lovely-smelling candle to burn and a nifty gift shop to return to sometime. 😊
365 📷: 2016 165/366 – The dining room is in a state of flux and has been for a few weeks. I forget what the table top looks like…
365 📷: 2016 166/366 – I hope this isn’t the start of a pattern, but just like yesterday’s photo, today’s is an image of something that really needs to get done around the house. In this case: weeds in the pavers.
Instagram 📱: I’ve just torn my house apart, looking for my notes on the first 3 Porthole Cardigans I knit last fall. No luck. All I have is this copy from the one I just made. I hope I didn’t have any crucial revelations with those first three, because if I did, they are likely gone forever. Ah, the joys of #patterndesign! #pdc #pdcportholecardigan
Instagram 📱: I need to buy more yarn to finish this cardi, and it’s more expensive than I expected. Now I have to decide if I’m going to love this sweater enough to justify the price, or if I should start over with something cheaper. It’s times like these I wish I was independently wealthy😉
365 📷: 2016 167/366 – It pains me to give up on a project this far in, but I have decided that while I love this sweater pattern, and I love this yarn, I don’t love them both together enough to justify what it would cost to finish knitting it. So, I’ll be unraveling it soon, repurposing the yarn for another project, and re-starting this pattern with something more appropriate for my needs.
Instagram 📱: That sweater that was causing me angst last night? I made a decision to start over with different yarn. Yarn I don’t currently have. So in the meantime, I’m starting a new #crochetmandala from @byhaafner ‘s awesome #mandalastocrochet book. This one is the #sayitwithflowersmandala 🌼
365 📷: 2016 168/366 – My 2nd nephew just graduated from high school. In a few months it’s off to the Army. Congratulations, Joe ☺ ♥ [Taken at my parents’ house.]
Instagram 📱: Good morning, Instagram☕ I’m sleepy today. If I could sit here and peacefully #crochet and sip my #morningcoffee for the next few hours, I totally would.
365 📷: 2016 169/366 – Finally made it to the farm for some strawberries. I left them out for munching, but I think there will be enough left to use in some kind of delicious baked good yet-to-be determined.
I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
