Kitten Season

One of the 4 kittens born last May had her own kittens at the end of April.  It took a bit of finagaling to catch the family, but they have been safely ensconced in my bathroom for about 10 days.

Winery Adventure

I went on a very fun adventure this weekend with a friend.  We went to Masia de la Vinya for wine tasting.  We had a great "bartender", the wine was delicious, the company was excellent and the day was beautifu.  Somewhere around taste #5 I started to relax and feel like myself again... I may need to become a middle aged drinker after all.

Kidding! But seriously, how cute are we?  This is out on the patio, drinking local sangria and listening to live classic rock.  I think this was during the James Taylor song.   We had a great time. I highly recommend it.

After wine and breadsticks and water and time we hit the road back home with only a couple stops - one at the bead store for some beads to match some of the yarn-crawl yarn, one to get my nose pierced and one for a delicious burrito late lunch.  Pretty much a perfect day.  I didn't even touch my knitting.

...Saves Nine

Still stitching.  The bathtub doesn't show too well against the linen colored cloth but the outlining will help (if I ever get there).  Big swaths of one color make progress speedy.

A Stitch in Time...

Not entirely sure why my knitting / spinning desire has been usurped by the urge to work on counted cross stitch, but there you have it.  I even got some work done today at the laundromat.

All the green and gold is complete now and I added more white last night and today. More white, more tan, more backstitching and more blackwork border and I'm done. 

Then it is on to the coordinating second pattern.
