See the pretty sap? It is really pretty. I forgot about the pinecones until I noticed smoke...all throughout the downstairs. It took about an hour to get all of the smoke out, and the great piney scent lingered for hours. Rob and I loved the smell; the kids, not so much.
Anyway, right now, I'm left with all these pinecones (and this is about only half of what I brought home). They're still on the cookie sheet because I don't know what I'm going to do with them! I keep searching the house for some kind of decorative basket to put them in, but I haven't found one yet. They really need a home soon.
And right now, on another part of my dining room table, is the zig zag quilt. Does anyone have a recommendation for quilting thread? Because I'm using a brand-new spool of Coats & Clark machine quilting thread and it is breaking constantly--just like all the other spools of C&C machine quilting thread that I've bought in the past. Constantly re-threading the machine does not make this enjoyable for me!
And right now, I'm knitting these as fast as I can. Seven down, five more to go, and then it's on to the mini-mittens.
And right now, I'm wondering what is the best way to repair these jeans. The quickest way will be an iron-on patch on the inside. Or I could just take these out of the rotation.
