I succumbed to the siren song of Speckled Egg, and couldn't find ink pads anywhere, so ordered the whole thing. So now I have two Speckled Egg Distress Glaze, but I'm not worried about that. A few weeks ago I discovered the Distress Markers had gone away. And when I got this I think the Distress Stains with a dauber have gone away as well.

But today most of the crafty related action is outside. I had a pile of yarn that was dusty, so I have been giving the skeins a bath and then dry them outside. Also washed the last of my shawls. The towel is drying because I used it to get water out of the shawl lol. And to the right is my solar cooker. Only the last two times it has failed me. I think the reflective surface needs a good buffing.

Drying hack, use the silver side of the tarp and knit wear (or crochet wear) dries in a jiffy.

This is what it looks like when I am winding a skein and I go in the wrong direction and have to unwind everything lol. The knitty noddy is the stick like thing on top of my tea cup pot (which needs a plant in it). The bag in the chair is a gorgeous brown fleece that needs washing. And just through the chair you can see Archie Cat.

Archie has been enjoying the days on the porch. He is a 15 year old toothless mouser, who has bigger dreams now of squirrels and chipmunks lol. Since fall is approaching, they are busy gathering the acorns in front of the house and run along the porch just on the other side of the screen. Archie is not a fan of screens. Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty peeks.
