Under the weather

And this is some weather to be under! It's very hot and humid here (and everywhere, it seems, unless it's flooding! My, oh, my!) First I got a summer cold and then I got strep throat on top of it. I'm fine, just tired. I sat last weekend and worked on finishing up bookmarks. I have ten done now. Here are four more sequined ones. I finished up the other six with a tassel and ribbon backing, too.At my recent birthday party, my sister-in-law gave me this lovely wool shrug. We didn't think to take a photo with me wearing it. (when I get one, I'll post it) It's gorgeous. The yarn in person is just wonderful (two yarns, actually, held together throughout). There are two elbow-length sleeves and a lacy edge all around. I'm always amazed by her knitting! Thanks!

Beautiful Shrug. The colors are great. I admire people that can knit and other talents I don't have:)

Ooooh I love the color of that shrug. it looks so comfy.

A belated happy Birthday. It looks like you had a good one.

I hope you are feeling better soon. I know I am fighting the summer cold something feirce. Still have the sore throst but so far the cold part is staying away. :)

I hope things settle down so you can get some stitching in soon.
