A good week

It feels so good to feel good. I didn't realize how low I had been until this last week when I finally threw off the crud that's been making the rounds of the office and the immunotherapy I've been having for my allergies kicked in last Friday. I had a great weekend last week, felt really great all week this week, and was energetic enough to tackle the mess I have in my kitchen this weekend. I'm hoping this is the start of a long-term trend. I'm tired of being unable to do what I need to do to keep my house a healthy place to live.

Now that the Queen Anne's Lace is complete, I feel great about tackling on more lace but not on such a large scale. One of my spring projects is to construct a pioneer woman's outfit: dress, bonnet, and apron. For the apron, I'm knitting up a lace edging to attach to the bottom. It's from The Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffmann and I'm doing it in bamboo crochet thread on size 1's. I'm liking how it's coming out and how the thread is behaving. Now to do 3 feet of it.

Have a great week

Wow, a Sunday apron? Way cool! Are you going to be doing historic re-enactments?
