Easter Weekend

Well Easter weekend was a very busy weekend. Mr80grit and I started it with a late lunch at our favorite restaurant. Good Friday services then back to our favorite restaurant. Really they do know us by name! Saturday was band practice, a trip to my parents to set up their computer as Mr80grit had done some updating and spring cleaning on it. Then back home for a nap then again to our favorite restaurant. Sunday was a very busy day, starting very early in the am and not ending until later. Sunday services, lunch at my parents.

While at my parents, I got my mom to Model my last shawl. It is the forest canopy shawl by Susan Lawerence. Raveled here

We took a lot of pictures and my mom was a good sport, walking on the unlevel ground with a back that wasn't happy this week.

Afterwards it was home for a nap, big mistake as we didn't go to bed until 1 am and Mr80grit had to work.

Yesterday was another beautiful sunny and windy day. Mom, Mr80grit and I went to lunch, were else but our favorite place. It is also my Mom's favorite too! Then we went on a research shopping trip for my mom. Then Mr80grit and I did some stuff for the studio as we had the computer worked on during this work break. While Mr80grit uploaded all the software I worked on the Grey Dawn shawl, I am almost through the basket weave part of the shawl. Of course, the day ended with dinner at our favorite place.

What a fabulous weekend, and no cold it is just the tree's pollen, we spotted the Russian Olive trees are starting to wakeup so that is one of the worst ones for me.


  1. Your shawl is lovely! Its sounds like you had a good Easter.

  2. My cousin used to have some Russian Olive seedlings, until I mowed them down one day. In my defense, he didn't have them flagged.

    Your shawl is beautiful!

  3. The shawl is gorgeous and it does remind me of a forest canopy. Not so sure it's as pretty as the cranberry one you made for me though :)
