Better late than never!

My beloved Jack had surgery Thursday for carpal tunnel and a tendon in his thumb. Add to that lack of sleep for a few days and by Friday I was too wiped out to post.  Jack is doing well.  Here he is setting a fashion trend!
We had a very lovely sunset the other night.  So much pink and orange.  They say it is from all the smoke from the wildfires in the Northwest.

I have been playing this last couple days with the Solaris Shawl by Kim Guzman.  It calls for lace weight yarn but I am experimenting with size 5 cotton.
And I made a test square for a pillow I plan on making. I am pleased with it!
Finally hung the valance I made.  It makes the window look perfect.
This afternoon I caught Sylvia being a silly girl on the sofa!

Thanks for visiting.  Huggles and blessings.

I so hope Jack is feeling a bit better, sending him huggs (if that's allowed from UK), love your square for the new project.

I hope that Jack is feeling just the thing now that his surgery is over!

Ouch, I hope Jack is feeling better now!

I really like the cotton you're using for the shawl. It feels very Halloweeny! And you've picked some nice substitutes for the river rose pattern too.
