Aug 13 - Tennant Reunion

There were 55 in attendance at the Ben and Eva Tennant reunion this year. Great food, lots of fun, pictures to share. Babies to hug.

Meanwhile Back in the Kitchen

The cubbiehole for the frig is now enclosed and soon will have internal walls as well. This pix was before trimming the outside wall. It doesn't really stick up like that now.

In the meantime, I've learned some new craft stuff. Entrelac is a pretty fancy knitting technique. Here's a swatch I was practicing on. I've sent away for a pattern that I hope I'll be able to do and show you soon.

And here's a little guy I made for Grant. He's a frog complete with flies that he can carry inside. He's a little pouch for treasures. Flies are only the beginning.

And here are some flipflops for the cold, cold drinks so they don't sweat on your tables and to help your guests keep track of which color is theirs.
Cute, huh?

And Yet I Keep Crocheting

In an effort to keep calm in the midst of chaos , I retire to my room and crochet. Here is my latest. I found on-line a pattern for a 1940's style chair back doily thingy. It was in pineapple pattern which I like and I wanted to try it in yarn instead of thread and make it into a shawl; so I did. It's on the floor but I'll try to get someone to model it for a picture soon. It appears white but is really pineapple yellow ;)

A Work in Progress - a view from the garage

On Monday Lynn took the day off and worked on building the cubbie hole and getting water and electricity for the frig.

It was hot.

Now we have a floor and two walls, sort of.
