I’m at Starbucks this morning, writing this post. It’s hard being a coffee lover in our house on the weekends. To be fair, though, it’s hard for Neil (being a smell-of-coffee hater) on those rare occasions I decide to brew the stuff at home anyway 😜.
I do try to be considerate, though. Most weekends I just make tea. Or, if it’s a nice day, I take all of my coffee-making paraphernalia into the back yard and brew it there for a quiet outdoor breakfast alone.
Other times, like today, I leave the house. I am more in the mood to be out among people today than I am to be lounging around in my pj’s at home.
This week, creatively-speaking, I made much progress on my sweater (just some seaming left to do!), and put my Mod Floral Mandala pattern to work in a dramatically different color scheme for some kitchen table mats. I had a bit of sewing on the schedule for this week, too, but it ended up falling by the wayside. I need to get on that soon, though, so that I can convert the sewing table into a polymer clay table. I’ve got ideas that I need to get out of me and into the clay!
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…
365 📷: 2016 212/366 – It’s been a super rainy Saturday afternoon. I actually had to go looking for an umbrella for my walk to the mailbox.
365 📷: 2016 213/365 – I have barely moved from this spot today. Oh! the knitting I have accomplished. Not to mention the hours of Masterpiece Mystery…
365 📷: 2016 214/366 – Well, there goes a perfectly good pourover coffee cone (not to mention the pile of wet coffee grounds still in it).
365 📷: 2016 215/366 – I took the day off from knitting yesterday, and instead spent a little time with the crochet hook. I thought we could use a few table toppers in the kitchen. Both pieces used my Mod Floral Mandalas pattern. I’ll blog about them sometime next week and give you all of the details.
365 📷: 2016 216/366 – What a perfect night for some window sill candles. The humidity has gone away with the end of the heat wave, and we’ve having some beautiful breezy days and nights ♥
365 📷: 2016 217/366 – Every Thursday I plan to go to the Madison farmer’s market, and every Thursday I forget, or I make other plans. I finally remembered today! I bought a bag of the best kettle corn ever, and this is all that is left of it. I think I’m just going to skip dinner 😜
365 📷: 2016 218/366 – Captured an image tonight of the elusive nephew #1 creature. He’s headed back to college tomorrow. [Taken at my parents’ house.]
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!
