First of all thank you all so much for telling me your hobby gene stories.
These were so interesting. Aren't we lucky?
Someone a long time ago said to me that she was often bored. Bored? Are you kidding? My backlog of projects is so large that I really hope there is such a thing as reincarnation. I am definitely going to need it.
On that note the pickle obsession continues. Bunny, I have some watermelon pickles started and soon as I finish writing this I am going to get up and finish them. Yesterday I made some banana and mango chutney:
I also finished my latest pair of more-ease-real-waistline-
Project Runway-Simplicity pants. Adding the extra at the centre front as Kay suggested .
They are great!
Just great. I have finally com
e up with a set of pants patte rn alterations I think I can a pply to any pattern, Simplicit y at least, and make them fit me!
Well that was easy.
Only took me 35 years.
You might wonder where the picture is.
Well once I decided that this pair, even though they are made in Kona cotton which is all I could find here, were good enough to wear, I put in an invisible zipper - which broke just after I had put it in. This is the first time that has ever happened to me.
So on the way to the golf course today (I am actually having a good time now we have applied the No Advice Rule and the promise that I can buy saddle shoes to golf in - I have been waiting since I was 8 for those to come back in) I am going to have to get a new zipper at Hobby Lobby.
It is going to be a bit of a rush because late tonight my mom and niece will be arriving. That will probably mean a transfer to knitting as we are going to have to do a catch-up on the whole family, that will be going on for days and will be round up only once we get to the all important question for each person, "who are they just like?" Once we have made a match for each personality characteristic and someone else in the family we will be done.
They are here for 10 days and we should have a good time. My mom needs a rest and we are going to be doing Disney World with my niece etc.
In the meantime for those of you who haven't been to this beautiful
part of Florida here is a pic ture of the local neighbourhoo d:

And here is what got stuck under our back gate yesterday:
My husband opened the gate and let him get out. Mr. Rascal has of course been in this position for the last 24 hours, and is likely to stay like there for the next two weeks:
Now back to pickle-making.
