Good-bye to IHSW, Part 1
Well, it turned out to be an interesting weekend. First of all, I woke up Saturday morning feeling quite a bit better - still stuffed up but not as sniffly. Then, at about 1130, the power went off - not just at my place but all of Prince Rupert was down. Still have no idea why, but for 6 hours we were disconnected from the outside world. So, what do you do when nothing electrical will work and there is gorgeous sunshine streaming through all the windows? Find a comfy chair and stitch of course.
First you have to pull your project bag out from under your helper.
I find this the perfect size for small projects. The top compartment holds the floss, the middle one the fabric and a small hoop if I need it and the bottom one my scissors, spare needles and ORT bag.
So Santa/elf went from here
And the sweater sleeves did get started.
That's 6 rows of ribbing, so I'm half way through.
Not a huge amount for a whole weekend, but enough to let me know I am on the mend.
Now to blog hop and see what everyone else was up to.
