It’s a Waiting Game, Many Starts But No Finishes


PLAYING THE WAITING GAME

Grandbaby #6 has all of us on pins and needles, waiting for his much anticipated arrival, which could be any time now.  His poor mommy has been through the mill these last few days and weeks with long and strong Braxton Hicks contractions, pregnancy fatigue and just plain old impatience, with all of us more than ready for a meet and greet with Baby Shepherd…..did I mention that he is the lone boy in the grandbaby lineup, with five princesses and now, one prince.  I see a lot of spoiling in his future!  Stay tuned!

What may be the most unattractive scarf ever — good thing this is just a test drive of some yarn that came in a “grab bag” from Lion Brand.  Yeah…….no.

FROM THE POTTERY STUDIO

One thing that has been moving in the finish direction has been my recent pottery projects, a series of blue and white glazed pots, which I’ve become a bit obsessed with.  Here’s a sampling –

Blue Celadon, Cloudy Blue and Glossy White on B-clay

It’s all I can do not to geek out over these pots, but I’ll spare you.  Apparently, not everyone shares my enthusiasm for mud (and fiber). ☹️
