In just a couple of days, Sunday, is the holy day of Pentecost -- an important event in the early Christian Church, celebrating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and followers of Christ during the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot)... The gift of the Holy Spirit! Looking forward to Sunday morning church service! :)
Above... a page from my Bible with some art journalling, using watercolors and stickers. I go in periods of dabbling in Bible art journalling, and feel pulled in that direction again...
In recent days I've been knitting any moment I can on this--the Allegra Jacket, which I've not shown in ages. And it is FINALLY finished!! It's taken forever, this one... The awkward cuff-to-cuff construction has made it not the most fun project I've ever knit. It has been like wrestling with a lilac baby elephant... LOL! For weeks--months, really--I pushed this back in the work basket in favor of more fun things to work on... a reindeer colorwork cowl, socks... But I'm done!
The fit of this cardi/jacket is great--very comfy and cozy. I do love the lavender color of the yarn! And my new glasses are purple-ish, so match-y-matchy!
Using fabric scraps (from my vintage-style apron made last summer) I sewed up this simple, funky plaid & print knitting/crochet project bag. It is lined and with a drawstring. I love the handy outer pockets. I'm liking bags for individual projects, otherwise my project basket would get too messy with everything in a heap.
And something new is on the hook... a crocheted cardigan! More on this coming soon! So excited about this project!
We've been having WARM weather this week... a mini summer heat wave! Sometimes as much as 25 C/ 77 F...which is hot for here! Meals have been lighter--quick and easy--like this Pasta con le sarde... Pasta with fennel, sardines, anchovies, sultanas (golden raisins)... The raisins are an unusual taste and texture with pasta, but the hint of sweetness is a such an interesting contrast with the rich, savory flavors of this dish!
And our little Luna... just because... ;) I take photos of her all the time. This is a sweet one from this week...
TJ and I are taking today off, and making a long weekend of it. Hopefully some fun to be had, as it's been a lot of work and all sorts lately. Wishing you all a lovely weekend now! :)))
