I finished the Julianna cardigan on the 16th (no photos yet). It definitely doesn't fit me, so I'll give it to Elizabeth at work if it fits her.
...

I started the Easy Breezy Cardigan with purple Microspun yarn, got the body almost done, discovered it really didn't fit me. It fit Patrice at work and looked great as a colorful vest (the Easy Breezy Vest!) to offset the neutral colors she usually wears, so I finished the bottom edging and sleeve opening edging and gave it to her as a vest (no photos yet). I started another Easy Breezy Cardigan for myself and am thinking it may be just a little too tight, but I'm not going to pull it out yet. [5:15pm I crocheted a few more inches, tried it on, decided it wasn't working for me, and pulled it out. I'm now considering taking this project to Kona with me!]

...

In spite of receiving the Quilter's Pack of sewing machine feet, I haven't yet tried to use one. In addition to my usual delay tactics when it comes to needing to be perfect at something or not do it at all, there was a heat wave for a few days that kept me imobile in front of a fan at all times.

However, it was a lovely day yesterday! I spent 5+ hours transplanting pot-bound plants, moving plants from here to there, getting rid of plants that weren't working for me, planting new ones, de-weeding, deadheading, watering, sweating, getting sore, itching...

...

Bill and I are leaving Tuesday morning for a 2-week vacation in Kona on the Big Island, Hawaii. I'm a bit antsy about what I'll do to keep myself occupied during the vacation! I can't bring enough yarn with me for 2 weeks, so I won't be bringing any. I don't plan to bring my sewing machine and all the tools and supplies that go with quilting. Mom suggested I could bring a cross stitch or other needlework project, but there's nothing I want to work on. So, I'm bringing a few books and am hoping my hands (and brain!) don't get too itchy for a project to work on!
