One is Silver the Other Gold

I finished the socks.  As to the fish, one is silver and the other gold.  I was trying to remember where that phrase is from.  I googled it.  It is song lyrics about old and new friends.

So when you finish something, guess what, you get to start something new, right?  I started Just Nan's Strawberry Mouse House.  It's recommended fabric is a grey overdyed and I got that with the chart.  But I hate it!  I kept making mistakes plus it is floppy.  So frustrating.  I decided to change.  I think Hobby Lobby is getting rid of a certain brand of linen.  I got two packages that were marked down.  I just decided that the cream colored one would be fine.  And indeed, it is just fine.  One side is done and a second started.

I am much happier with this linen.

I've been to the Farmer's Market. They had strawberries for the first time this year.  Of course, I got some,

 The walking is done.  There is usually some sort of run or walk on a Saturday.  I'm always early enough that there is no problem.
I got to see videos of Claire's graduation from preschool.  So cute.  How can she be that old?  We are going to see them in July.  Oh, joy!


  1. Your stitching is always fascinating, unique, and a pleasure to see.

  2. The fish are cute.
    Love those JN designs, the Mouse House will be so cute.
