How is it Friday?

This has been a nutty end to the week (all good, just nutty). Wednesday I spent most of the day doing a deep clean on the coast house, as we have decamped to Eugene for a little over a week. We left Wednesday evening in two cars (me: dogs, cooler, hanging basket, miscellaneous stuff; Tim, bird, cat, tools, miscellaneous stuff). Yesterday I spent the morning putting down cardboard on our awful lawn to get ready for today's big event: THE BLOWING-IN OF THE MULCH! That is happening right now. Yesterday afternoon I went through my books in the office and took 40 or so over to the library book sale deposit place.

So there isn't much in the way of crafts to show you:

This is Knit Picks yarn and I wish the color changes were a little more subtle. I do, though, love the colors on this.

I had a bit of a card making frenzy on Tuesday (off to check if I have shown you these. The top one is meant to be off-center (really!) and is made with foil washi tape. The bottom two are my 'standard' iris fold Christmas trees which I really, really like.  I use origami paper for those and I think it does show the folds so much better. The washi tape is much easier though since once you have the first few down it sticks to itself really well.

And one sunset for our memories:

OH--if you like tiny needle work, Cozy Blue has some limited edition Christmas pieces on sale right now for a limited time (Christmas in July, don't you know). I've already ordered mine so go ahead and go nuts at her shop! Just to disclose, I'm not a paid promoter of her site, I just truly love all her work.

Have a great weekend!

Opening a tab to Cozy Blue as I type. Unbelievable sunset. You're so very lucky.

What a lovely sunset . That view is so interesting always. Gave away 40 books. That's wonderful.
I love evergreens so I love your cards. We , sadly, took down our 15th evergreen on the property that has died since we moved in 3 years ago. This time Zach could help us and it made it much easier but I am very tired.

You are getting pretty good at the 'transition travels'! lol
The mulch will be great when finished!

I'm laughing at the idea of traveling with a cat and a bird in the car together... but I guess if they live together, perhaps they are friends. Love your cards, specially the ornament one. I'm a geek for red, white and blue and that's what it looks like on my screen. And that sunset... simply gorgeous!
