Brrrrr...I have the furnace on. And I think I lost the tomato seedlings, all of them. The green pepper seedlings are doing okay and so are the remnants of the tobacco, but the tomatoes...not so good. I guess I'll have to go with plants from the store after all.
I've been thinking of doing a raised bed as we're under deluge right now and no telling when the ground would be dry enough to till. But buying dirt isn't inexpensive. And I would need something to bolster up the sides. I've got some 2 x 2s but I'm not sure they are tall enough. We do have fencing but I still need something to border all the dirt. I'm sure concrete blocks are expensive, too. Time is ticking away and I have to decide soon.
I finished up the vest for Bette. I hate the neckline but at this stage, I also hate the whole vest anyway and can't care enough to redo it. She wants it tomorrow so she can take her Mother's Day pictures in it. I suspect she'll be disappointed in it. I know I was.
I'm working on the Helm's Deep shawl and really liking it, except I'm using acrylic which won't block so the lacey parts look a bit wavy but I think the weight of it will hold them open enough when on my shoulders. I think I gave up on the christening dress. It's not like I was knitting it for anyone...just a way to improve my skills. I also got my pencils out this weekend and am working on some basic stuff. I might get my acrylics out next week but it's too dark and damp right now.
I also got my kick spindle out last night and did some spinning. I had forgotten how relaxing that is. I must take the time each day to work on that. Although it's taken me about a year, I'm almost done with the Welsh Top which I plan on dyeing. It's a sturdy yarn so probably not good for anything next to the skin, but maybe an open-weave jacket or something. Maybe something crocheted. Something to think about anyway. Then I might look at getting something softer to spin next time.
I've got laundry to do today in addition to cleaning. I got behind because of the flu/bronchitis so right now the work load seems so overwhelming. If I can handle it one step at a time, maybe I won't get so stressed out.
Off to make my bed and get the clothes out of the dryer.
