After the flurry of activity of the last few weeks, I told myself that I was going to take Wednesday off and get a couple of things done outside for a change. Well, Tuesday night it began to rain, and get colder too. I can take cold very well, and rain doesn't really bother me, I have been known to dig a ditch or two in the rain, but the 2 together really did a number on me! I managed to get a little firewood inside, cover the wood pile with a tarp, and secure the chainlink fencing around the new dog kennel I was given on Sunday. Then I made a dash for the house, showered and put on dry clothes, and drank a hot drink. The fences will just have to wait!
I turned my attention to the blankets that I had finished in time for Tuesdays mock up. I had just run them thru the dryer to set the color a little bit more and to shrink them a bit. I pulled them out and ran them thru 2 wash cycles (with color catchers). I am pleased to say that they washed beautifully!
I ran them thru the dryer til just damp, then I gently stretched them both ways, and hung them to finish drying.
I folded them yesterday, and they are waiting on the table for there tags.
It is a beautiful day outside today, I may get some fencing done this week after all.
