I made a sock for Fall:
The other one is underway. Mr. Lucy was laughing at me for taking a picture of one sock, but I was excited and had to share. It's my second pair using the Embossed Leaves pattern, which I just like so much. The yarn is Lorna's Laces and the colorway is called Aslan. I may have bought this yarn just because of the name. I'm not much of a beige/brown person, but this colorway is actually quite pretty. I wonder if I can rake my rug?
Last weekend I decided to join up with the Apartment Therapy Fall Cure, and cure my guest house of all its ills. I made a lot of progress. I got rid of four big 3-drawer plastic bins. They were ugly and they took up a lot of space and they weren't working. As I was clearing out the drawers I kept coming accross fabric that I had totally forgotten about. Now it's all arranged on shelves and I can easily see what I've got. I'm such a sucker for organizing gadgets, but just because something is made to get you organized, it doesn't mean it actually will. I've thinned out my fabric quite a lot, but there is still so much! I'd better start using it. Here is a progress picture:
The main thing I want to get done, after I get all the junk cleaned out, is to paint everything white, and then I'm going to hang some curtains in front of the bookcases to finish everything off nicely. I'm sure I'll be showing more progress photos as I get things done. The TV may also get a new table and I have some other ideas percolating as well.
I'll leave you with some current chicken portraits:
That's Fuzzy in the first picture, and then one of the Silver-Laced Wyandottes and one of the Rhode Island Reds. They are looking like little chickens now, I've started calling them chucks at Yvonne's suggestion in the comments a couple entries back. I think that's a perfect name for them and it makes me smile. They are starting to make little clucking noises, although they still peep a lot. They like going outside and scratching around and they love the lettuce and cabbage leaves that I bring them for treats. So, the chucks seem to be thriving :o)
