You may have heard about the fires in Oregon and Washington. Or maybe not if you are avoiding the news, which I support 100%. The fires are not nearby but the smoke started blowing in on Thursday afternoon and looks like it will be sticking around a while. So, one more reason to stay inside. Seattle opened clean air shelters for people who don’t have an inside. And it seems people are taking this unhealthy air seriously because the neighborhood has been very quiet the last few days.
Saturday was really weird. There was a dull, yellow glow all day that felt almost apocalyptic. The pictures of Oregon and downtown Seattle are crazy. Fortunately the weather changed which was a blessing. A closed up house in hot weather would have been hard to handle (no air conditioning here).
While I was inside, not accumulating any steps on my FITB, I finished that donation hat. I am closing in on sleeve number one – three to go. I also stitched the binding on a quilt. And I made plans via text with some quilting friends to stitch and swap house blocks. During a little decluttering session, I found the yarn I bought for the Pheasant Pullover. The question is, do I need to finish all the sleeves before I can start another sweater?
I did play with my notebooks but no photos to share. Be sure to visit Katie – our notebook guru. And have a wonderful Monday. Take a few deep breaths for me.
