In the quiet of the morning

Posted on Aug 29, 2007. 3 comments

Although it's becoming more and more rare as Maya gets older and busier I delight in the quiet of the morning. When the whole house is quiet, save for a fan, the soft snoring of the dog, and the sound of the rocking chair as I rock Miss Fickle to sleep. Sometimes she nurses herself to sleep but more often not as she claims her independence. I'll miss these quiet days.
Yesterday was the antithesis of quiet. Roberta returned from a 2 week visit home in Belgium. Maya was thrilled to see her honarary Auntie and put forth her best show.

First she offered up smiles, tilting her head back and forth, slapping the table to charm Auntie and the passing waitstaff. Then for completeness, she sprouted horns and a tail. Flailing about, throwing her head back and sobbing without hope of recourse. I find it amazing that babies run the gamut of emotions so quickly.
Speaking of quick the Mochi project is flying by. I've made a few small changes to the pattern, which I'll talk about later.

I can't wait to finish and set up a photography session.
I was finally spurred into action over my EPS Nordic sweater when I discovered elann was having a sale on Cashsoft.

I haven't been able to find the colors I've already used so I decided to try adding a navy and red stripe across the chest. If it is unflattering I'll turn the sweater into a child's sweater for Maya when she's older.
On an unrelated note I've been admiring the embroidery on Lusekofte sweaters. I'm looking for references on this type of craft, are there any good books on the subject? What type of yarn/thread is used for this embroidery? I'd be greatly appreciative of any advice on the topic.

    I’m no help on the embroidery, but I’ll keep an eye out.
    Isn’t it amazing how babies are?

    I think maya’s turn of emotions was because she was done with lunch and ready to go to costco. (space bags rule!!!!)
