June's here

Today's the last rehearsal before the Confluence Chorus concert next Friday and Saturday. My carpool buddies have a meeting beforehand so I've volunteered to drive so that while they are sitting in a dull meeting I can go here to get in some spring color. We see the fields when we drive to rehearsal; it'll be really wonderful to see the flowers up close.

The Clapotis in progress. I've finished off one skein of the Blue Heron rayon ric-rac and have started the rayon boucle in the same colorway. It's coming along well.

I was able to get a picture of the Rogue with better light to get a more accurate image of its color. This is a little lighter than the actual tealish green but it's better than the one I took indoors. It still is waiting for me to have a moment to work on it.


I was going through blogs this morning and found this on M-H's blog. It's a pretty comprehensive checklist. What you do is show the list, highlight in bold what you have done, highlight in italics what you plan to do (in my case, what I'd like to do), and leave plain everything else that you don't plan on doing or have an interest in doing. I put it in alphabetical order to make it easier to work.
