Last Week At A Glance πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Funny story…funny, weird – you decide 😁

Two, three nights ago I dreamt about this very post. I dreamt the title, that I wrote it, the pictures were there. It was so vivid, that I honestly thought it was done.

And I was a little bit sad 😒 that no one liked it!

So today, while scrolling through all your wonderful posts, I wondered where my ‘Glance at last week’ disappeared to.

Well, you know the end of that story. πŸ˜†

So…without further ado – here it is (I hope πŸ˜‰)


I finished writing the pattern for my next workshop. It’ll be a ‘Lacy Scarf’. I decided to introduce three different stitches that make a gorgeous lace pattern.



Michele (my partner in crime) and I met to set the date and talk about the details. We agreed on everything, so that was done fast 😁 and we got to enjoy our lunch while visiting with our friend Lili 😍

We forgot to take a picture…so I give you this. Just pretend it’s us πŸ˜†


I decided I need new sneakers. That’s easier said than done…ugh! I must’ve tried on every pair in the store. A big shoutout to my friend Carole – she was very patient. 😊

Just as I was about to give up, I spotted a pair -in my size!!! – at the bottom of the clearance shelf. And they fit, and are very comfy! Score! 😎

One question remains though…why do all ‘Asics’ in 3 different sizes (6.5, 7, 7.5) fit the exact same way? Just a tad too small πŸ˜• It’s quite puzzling.

Then, of course…Lunch! πŸ˜† Good thing I only eat salads 😜


Just an ordinary day πŸ™‚ Dog walking, ‘breaking in the sneakers’ speed walking, and – no, not lunch 😁 – grocery shopping.

I finished the picot edging on the last sample scarf while watching the latest ‘ Garage Sale Mystery’. Those are so much fun! Do you watch?

The workshop flyer! I almost forgot to tell you about the flyer.

Here it is…

We have a few places in mind where we could distribute them…wish us luck 😊


Started as a pretty normal day…until the kitchen sink clogged up. ☹️ Without warning- it just didn’t wanna anymore. Pffft

And nothing worked. We plunged, and poked the clog with wire. I even bent a wire hanger out of shape…nothing. Snake wouldn’t fit. Drano didn’t do diddlysquat.

Just as we were about to call someone, hubby poked it again…and there it went. Whatever it was – it’s gone.

I did get a little bit of crocheting done. I started to look into Freeform Crochet 😍

It is so much fun. Pretty perfect for yours truly! 😁 Last years Puzzle Poncho had a few elements in it, now I did a sampler of different Scrumbles

Very promising! Don’t you think?


…is Farmers Market Day! Michele has a table at one close by. She sells her son’s wonderful artisan breads, and had the great idea to make a little display for our workshop.

Looks great! Doesn’t it? I would wanna sign up 😁


After a yummy lunch at the Casino Buffet, hubby went to poker and I played with Freeform Designs 😍

I’m really loving it! ☺️

That’s all! Overall a pretty good week I’d say. πŸ’ƒπŸ»

I’m sending you Smiles πŸ™‚ Hugs πŸ€— and Love πŸ’— for a wonderful week!

      Thank you, Tracy πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸŒ·
      You turned me onto the picots – I shall be forever grateful 😁
      That bread is as good as it looks! Being from Germany I’m a bit of a bread-snob 😜 So I’m very happy that this deliciousness is close by now 😍

    You are going to have an awesome turn out. I wish I could attend! Love anything with bread, so a announcement with bread is a perfect pairing

      That would be awesome! 😍 I don’t know how far away you are, but eventually I’ll have 2, 3 day retreats…we’ll – dreaming about anyway…so maybe that’ll work out for you 😊
      Thanks for the positive thoughts! πŸ™‚πŸ’•πŸŒ·

    Loved your ‘dream’ story. LoL As for trying on sneakers, I hate shopping for them. I don’t know why I have such a hard time finding something that fits and feels right but I do. I must have oddly shaped feet or something. And how exciting about your workshop. I would so attend if I was nearby!

      That would be wonderful, Yolanda 😍 Maybe one day when we have 2, 3-day workshops we’ll get to meet! That one will be on me 😁
      Yeah, sneaker shopping is no fun. I don’t remember it being that difficult! I don’t think it’s our feet…all my old sneakers fit fine, and are much more comfortable 😩 And why 3 different sizes fit the same I will never understand πŸ˜•
      My dream was quite weird πŸ˜† wasn’t it!? My mind is probably telling me to get back to a regular blogging schedule πŸ€“
