Today's paper declared September 2013 the wettest ever, the recent 6.16 inches beating out the 5.95 record set in September 1978. And guess what? It's still raining! Besides that, there was a tornado early yesterday (very rare here) in Pierce County and snow in the mountains! So, what to do, but stitching and knitting? (Of course, I could do some housework. Not!) At the moment, I am stitching on a Block of the Month started in 2009. It's called Verandah View from Willowberry and will eventually be a small quilt. Block one is all stitched.
And I've got a good start on Block two with only eight more, plus the rest of this one, to go!
From our veranda (er, patio) all you can see besides raindrops and soggy plants is our fall blooming clematis, which has finally produced some blossoms and
the strawberry-like fruit of the Korean dogwood. The birds and squirrels usually make short work of them, but I guess they are taking shelter from the rain also.
On the knitting scene, I'm part way up the right front of the cucumber sweater and hoping to finish that soon. It's about time though to head to the UW hospital to knit with the Antepartum patients. Have a nice afternoon! See ya later!
