The Puttering Weekly Link Round-Up

The time certainly is flying by. It's difficult to believe that it's almost May! This has been a "puttering" week for me. You know... nothing great accomplished, just a little of this, a little of that, finish up the final steps on several projects and begin several more with those first two steps.

When I get a chance, I've been sitting in a big white wicker chair in my living room, reading and keeping an eye out on the neighborhood since I'm sitting right by the huge picture window. I am getting quite a bit of reading done (finished Rosamund Lupton's Afterwards which is a fabulous book!), but I'm also enjoying scaring a black cat that (I discovered) likes to leave "deposits" beneath the window. I can also see when the mail carrier is bringing goodies to the door, and be quick to run out and scare off a young Gila woodpecker that's shown a penchant for drilling at the metal window frame of our bedroom window at 1:45 PM while Denis is sleeping.  I know... interesting wildlife around these parts, isn't there?

The case I made for Denis's Nook
Denis says that I'm going to turn into a curtain twitcher, but there's little chance of that. One, I'm talented enough to be able to sit there and see what I want to see without twitching the curtains, and two, with the sun getting ever brighter and hotter, I won't be opening the drapes in there much longer. In no time at all, I'll be spending the afternoons in the pool!

Before I head off and start listing this week's links, I thought I'd show you one of the projects I completed this week. The photo shows the cover I made for Denis's Nook Simple Touch. I used the herringbone stitch for this project because it makes the canvas look like a lovely piece of woven cloth. If you're interested in such things, you can click on the photo to see it in more detail. Now, on to those links!
