I added a couple more increase rounds before separating for the sleeves - I was worried it would be too tight. But if anything, it is now a little loose. Which I am fine with, as that just means I won't be uncomfortable in it:)
I've had some screwups with the lace pattern - the most recent one being I managed to drop 2 stitches 6 rows back or so. But I got them weaved in and am back on track - hopefully it won't be too noticeable when it's done. I'm going to go a couple more rounds and if it looks too bad, i'll rip back. If not, I'll keep going.
Have a great day - hope it's sunny wherever you are!
PS - Michelle - we are currently feeding Jessie's pigs Honor Show Chow - but it's rather expensive ($17 for a 50 lb. bag). If they weren't going to the State Fair and our County Fair, they would be getting a grind and mix feed from our local feed mill at $6 a bag. I'm just thankful that we can get by for now with the $17 a bag feed - last year the stuff we had to feed her 2 pigs was $40 a bag - and 1 bag lasted 6 days!!

Tyler had a blast, the other 7 boys had a blast and I didn't have to clean my house or cook for this to happen:)
I've been taking care of calves and helping Jessie with Punx:
Who we weighed yesterday and our friend Jason SAYS they are right on track for State Fair the first of August. This is really killing me (the hoping they both make weight). Jason and Todd both told me last night to shut up and have a glass of wine. They must have more faith than I do that both of these pigs will pack on almost 200 lbs. in the next 95 days.....
Yes, that is my stream Barlie is playing in. There was a frog in there you see. And I really don't want to know what happened with the frog.....

Amazingly enough, that cabinet has probably twice the storage space that the old hutch has in it. Jessie was properly HORRIFIED that I would put that chippy old thing in the kitchen - it should be nice and new. I'll have to work on her love of junk apparently.....
And while I was splashing paint everywhere? Jessie tried out her new-to-her sewing machine (a JoAnn Fabrics purchase in a mad dash on Friday night) and made herself some new pillowcases:
Which will be on their way to a good friend to get a crochet edge put on them if my luck holds this afternoon (I am single needle challeneged after all). She also started to make herself some new curtains for her room out of one of my vintage sheets. Of course, then she tells me last night she really wants her room painted bright blue and not pink anymore because pink is too girly.
Guess I will have to get moving on her room here shortly and make her another quilt. One that is not so pink and girly......
