Well, for one thing, there's QUILTING going on, at last. Yesterday I started machine-quilting the antique remake, but as promised, no pics till it's done. May I just say that the Bernina 440QE is a fabulous machine. Not using the BSR for this quilt, but the diagonal quilting looks wonderful and I'm totally in love with this machine.
In other news, I've knit my first sock-and-a-third. Used Grumperina's Jaywalker pattern from the net, and it's been really fun, though a bit daunting with those teeny-tiny (US Size 1!) needles. I'll make more socks, I'm sure, and I have some gorgeous Jo Sharp tweed yarn that's hankering to be a sweater, at some point.
And here's what things are looking like in Exeter, these days. As you can see, autumn is in full dress, and the colors are gorgeous. When we go back to California in a couple of weeks, we'll have full spring there, so what's not to like?!
And on a sad note, the six steers went off to market on Tuesday. I took this pic through the slats of the truck once they were loaded. DH got splattered with steer bleep shortly after this pic was taken...after he'd spent 3 hours chasing the one escapee up and down the paddocks till he got him penned! Turns out this one steer was actually an intact bull! So glad I didn't know that when we were strolling through the paddocks!
And that's the news of the day from Exeter.
