Here's the Projects I Haven't Had Time to Post about Lately

My friend saw a hat I made and asked if I'd make one for her too. She's a California girl and has been cold since she's been here in Kentucky at the rehab/nursing home. I think the color of this one looks great on her.

Poor thing really messed her leg up--

One of her nurses liked the hat and asked if I'd make her an identical one and another hat out of a different pattern in gray.

A little over a month ago, I made a scarf. I forgot what pattern I used but it came from one of the yarn companies sites like lion, bernat or one of the others (I think). I made another hat like the gray one but I used a flower on it instead of the bow-like trim.

Ray has been a bit slow with the bathroom remodel. We've changed the design of the shower tile layout a few times. He also doesn't like working with the subway tiles and had wanted to use 12x12 inch tiles but I pouted long enough to convince him otherwise. ;)

For some reason, many of the pictures I take in the bathroom have these orb-like blobs in them. Maybe we have ghosts?!

All the drywall has been finished as has the electrical being redone and ready for the fixtures. He installed a new dual flush toilet and had to remove it and take it back because there was a defect--when he did the first test flush water spewed out a crack that looked like a defect in the manufacturing. We got a different type and it isn't a dual flush but does conserve water.

See the little crack at the top on your left.

This is the good toilet. The drywall behind it is all done now.

I think I'm caught up here except for a pair of slippers I made. I'll put them in here later on. 

Take care y'all!


Sorry I've been gone for so long. My friend came to visit me and she ended up falling and broke 2 bones in her left leg. She had to go in the hospital and have a rod put in her leg. She is now in a nursing/rehab facility here. I've been spending a lot of time with her. We're hoping that in the next week she can walk the length of the hallway and then she can come to my house until she becomes more mobile and is able to go home. Her surgeon doesn't foresee her being able to travel until the middle of December. I have a few things I've completed that I'll be back later to post. Take care everyone...
