WIP Weds: Things are finally calming down


The craziness that has been my life is finally subsiding :0)

Our first local “Music in the Park”

Just before the sky dumped. 5 Mins later everyone hiding under shelter trying to stay dry :0)

Ok, so the sky opened and dropped Lake Ontario on our heads at intermission. I planned ahead rain poncho for camping, golf umbrella, fleece lined wind jacket = snug as a bug in a rug… till it was time to move to the car = soaked, oh well. What music there was, about 1 hrs worth, was great, I did get some knitting in, and the 50/50 draw was $155.00 not bad for a first night of the summer season. I hope this week will be dryer.

 My teaser from Friday, a little further along.

Thought I needed one of these on a showery day. Have you figured out what it is?

    You have a lot of WIPs in the works! You must have more time than I do. I am wondering if your teaser project is the rope for soap on a rope or some kind of leash?

    What do you mean the draw was 50/50? We’ve not yet made it to any of the summer outdoor activities, which is a bummer. I’ve already missed one Shakespeare in the park, for some reason they started well back in May when the weather was still plenty nasty. I even had on a fleece indoors again this am. Errrrrr Your list of wip’s is impressive!

      The 50/50 draw, you buy a ticket and the one that is drawn gets 1/2 of the money collected and the hospital gets the other 1/2. Great fundraiser! I have seen $400+ one Thursday. Worth getting a ticket :0)
