I managed to make a mandala in memory of Marinke Slump (Wink of A Creative Being). This was the only yarn I had that wasn't taped up in a box and my colors were limited. The white yarn I repurposed from a ball jar cover I had made a while back. I wasn't able to block it so I just hung it up with some two-sided tape on the fridge. That's why it's wonky.
I used a pattern from the latest issue of Simply Crochet Magazine.
Size 3.00 mm hook
Yarn is Hobby Lobby's Snowflake wool yarn and a white baby yarn.
We've had hot and muggy July days this week, although it's not been as hot as it usually is this time of year in the 100 to 105-degree range. We've had low to mid-90s and super-high humidity. I had to keep wiping the lens on my camera because it kept fogging over.
Sleepy dog on the porch days.
Momma Dove is still hanging in there and sitting on her pretty little eggs. There are two perfect-looking ones in there. She was sitting up there weirdly with her tail hiked up on the fence when I snapped her picture.
I'm trying to use up all our food in the freezer. I roasted a boneless turkey breast and made some french fries yesterday. Surprisingly, it was a great meal! We're down to a pound of hamburger, two big boneless pork chops, one chicken pot pie, one Mexican dinner, two boxes of potstickers, and some frozen veggies.
Time is winding down.
