Same at five grandgirls on the hoof and one grandboy still in utero. This is what 39 weeks looks like
Best daughter in law EVER!
Stay tuned! Her due date is TODAY!
ON THE HOOK
Ginny’s Patronus Cloak continues to grow……
This cloak may be my biggest crochet project ever, with this kitchen window valance running a really close second.
and, if you’ve kept up with me over the last few weeks, you remember our new four legged resident here at Casa Coleman – Dixie
Being the puppy she is, some of my fiber and several needles and hooks have taken it on the chin, necessitating the purchase of replacements. I got lucky this weekend when I went to buy replacement hooks and found this nice set of Boye ergonomics on sale at Wal-Mart. I prefer wooden needles/hooks, but until Dixie gets over her appetite for wood, I’ll be sticking with something a little sturdier. 🙂

PLAYING THE WAITING GAME
Grandbaby #6 has all of us on pins and needles, waiting for his much anticipated arrival, which could be any time now. His poor mommy has been through the mill these last few days and weeks with long and strong Braxton Hicks contractions, pregnancy fatigue and just plain old impatience, with all of us more than ready for a meet and greet with Baby Shepherd…..did I mention that he is the lone boy in the grandbaby lineup, with five princesses and now, one prince. I see a lot of spoiling in his future! Stay tuned!
ON MY NEEDLES
A new pair of socks
Knitty Deep Fall 2011
Fiesta Baby Boom Glacier Mist
What may be the most unattractive scarf ever — good thing this is just a test drive of some yarn that came in a “grab bag” from Lion Brand. Yeah…….no.

FROM THE POTTERY STUDIO
One thing that has been moving in the finish direction has been my recent pottery projects, a series of blue and white glazed pots, which I’ve become a bit obsessed with. Here’s a sampling –
Blue Celadon, Cloudy Blue and Glossy White on B-clay
It’s all I can do not to geek out over these pots, but I’ll spare you. Apparently, not everyone shares my enthusiasm for mud (and fiber). ☹️
