Today was overcast and chilly (27 when I went out at 11 a.m.) with about an inch of new snow. I ran into a snag when knitting yesterday ... I am working on booties for baby O ... So I stopped at the Stitchers Crossing to ask for clarification first thing.
Luckily, the pattern meant what I thought it might mean (writing clear instructions is obviously difficult judging by how often they _aren't_. I had ordered a pattern the last time I was in - it features lovely autumnal leaves - and that had arrived.
I decided to buy another pattern by the same designer, too. She is a local quilter/teacher named Judy H. I quite like her style. :). On a whim, I bought a kit to make a small drawstring bag (origami style) for my grand-nephew who loves penguins.
I took an urge to go out driving on my own for lunch so I fired up my Maps ap and went to Culvers for a very good cashew grilled chicken salad. I thought I'd drive into the downtown area to visit the art museum. I got distracted by all the new buildings and scenery, though and just drove around sight-seeing for a while instead. :)
I moved away from Madison in 1978 and there has been a fair bit of change since then, on campus and off. I had fun finding some old familiar sights and many new ones.
Baby O is eating, sleeping and growing apace. My daughter is healing less quickly. Sigh.
