The weekend has arrived

So glad that a new week will soon be here. Too many off things last week. I did this and that yesterday but  not much to show. I made a nice start on the repeat snowflake and for that I am pleased. This is on the plan for sometime over the weekend......
One of the Tilda dolls ready to have a body cut out. The fabric is a light peachy color that was given to me by Dianna. We traded off some fabric a while back. Just have to think about the clothing fabric and I have plenty in my bins to choose from.
I also happily  unfortunately  (I say but do not really mean) found a pattern for a tatted trinket box. I am really going to try to hold off with this one.  Anyway, I have the snowflake to finish and still working on re-arranging craft storage.
I want to pass on a "new" blog...sort of. Becky Noland who is a clever and witty gal has resurrected her knitting blog, She also has her Etsy shop and her stitching blog, stop by and check them out. I am sure you will like what you see.
Wherever you are, I hope you are in the "well zone". So many people are either with the flu or pneumonia or other. I am really trying to stay healthy after that lousy cold I had. Our weather is once again moving toward the unseasonal temps of mid to high 70s. My garden is not sure what to do; continue blooming or take a rest.

this picture of Alien was taken on the 7th. I finally attached garden twine so it would not attack me every time I opened the door from the garage. I marked where is coming from to where it is going and how much was in a blob.
The next picture was taken on the 10th
Can you see the blob big it has grown and the twine is beginning to disappear?...Do not know what it looks like today yet as it is still dark out there. I tell you, this Snail Vine grows a foot a day! in all directions. It is still blooming too. Today or maybe tomorrow morning is skim the pond day for sure. I should do laundry, make the bed too and change the air filter and I want to tat and sew! Did I mention I want to bake too?So ambitious......
Well, my coffee is finished and Corn Flakes eaten so on to domestic tasks. Nice to have you visit with me. Thank you for your kind words and friendship. Hope to chat with you again soon.

Gracie: That plant is amazing, what do you do to keep it under control if it grows a foot a day do you trim everyday or less? just curious.
A tatted trinket box sounds lovely.
I mad a Tilda Doll a while back I just love the designs, I hate turning the legs and arms for stuffing.

Looking forward to seeing the new doll.
Glad that you are staying well too.
We have Mile-a-Minute growing all over our hedge, that stuff is vigorous too!
