Arab Tent progress

Image
Progress on the Arab Tent. Should be able to finish this page by next week.


And I thought it got to be cold enough to start working on afghans, but this week it went back into the 70s. So may do a knit shawl project with "it's a wrap". Need to refresh my knitting skills before tackling one of the blankets I bought.

Also ordered yarn for the crochet crowd summer CAL and a potential knit hoodie. And a case for my double pointed needles so they're not sliding around on a shelf.

Vacation is coming up at the end of the month, hopefully I can get some cleaning/organizing done.

DWTS Season 27: Week 3

It's most memorable year night. Get the tissues ready.

Mary Lou. Not bad. Had a bit too much posing at the beginning. Head in hold didn't seem like it was always in the right direction. A little high. I would've given 7s.
Milo. Not very sharp, still had the loose quality from his first dance that I was worried about. I was entertained, I also love that song. I'll give him the scores but to high.
Nancy. No hips. Very much step, pose, turn. I didn't see what Carrie Ann was talking about. Too high.
Alexis. It was pretty. Good lifts. I'll give her the scores.
Evanna. Not bad, but body contact was lacking that would make that dance easier. I'll give her the scores.
Joe. Footwork was messy. He looked like he was shuffling along on his toes the entire time and knees were entirely too bent. Too high.
Juan Pablo. Was expecting more hips from him. Not bad for a guy, but few places looked a bit odd. Don't know if it was worth a perfect score.
John. Not bad. The ri…

Aren't they cute?

Working on the Arab Tent now. This page, one more and a partial left to finish the row.


And I couldn't resist the HAED sale. If anyone knows where I can get a cone of 938 and 939 that'd be great.

DWTS Season 27: Week 2 - Night 2

Time for some gambling, Vegas night is here.

Juan Pablo. I liked it. They did some swing. His rise and fall was a bit hoppy but so was the music. I'll give him 8s.
Milo. Back was curved, possibly because of the height difference since his knees looked too bent. 8s for the posture but it was a good dance. 
Danielle. Not much Quickstep. She looked more lost than usual. Too high.
Alexis. No hips during basic salsa. Too high.
John. He walked through it, didn't see much jive. Cute routine, but not a jive. too high.
Demarcus. Song was an odd choice. His left arm seemed to be too high. Something was off. Too high.
Joe. He seemed behind on everything except the trick with the glasses at the beginning. Really obvious next to 3 professionals. Too high.
Evanna. She tried but things were just a bit off through the whole routine. Either too much or not enough. Too high.
Bobby. I was too distracted by what was going on behind them to really pay attention. But I have a feeling it was not ver…

DWTS Season 27: Week 2

Cute opening. Although I miss pure ballroom openings.

Demarcus. A bit fast for a foxtrot. I think he had his arms /shoulders too high in hold. It was decent, but something was a bit off for me. A bit high but may end up being one of the better of the night.
Danielle. Not very good. I know she can't see, but technique was non existent. Too high. 
John. Felt more Broadway than Charleston. The Charleston parts were off. The rest was cute at least. Too high. Barely 7s for me.
Nancy. I saw heel leads, bent knees, not closing her feet on the chasses, and not actually moving during chasses and lock steps. Not very good. Too high.
Alexis. A few hiccups surrounding the skirt and I think she should be able to point her toes better. Didn't really feel like an Argentine tango. Too high.
Joe. Better than last week, but he also had far fewer steps. And the few he did felt like dance by numbers. Too high given he didn't do anything.
Tinashe. I liked it. The tricks were good and it felt l…

DWTS Season 27: Week 1 - Night 2

I love pro dances.

Demarcus and Tinashe are safe. No surprise. Nancy is in jeopardy. Not really surprised.  Joe is safe. Uh, why? How? 
Kids were cute. 
Juan Pablo is safe Nikki in jeopardy. Thought so John is as well.  Bobby is safe. Hopefully he calls down a bit.  Alexis is in jeopardy. A little surprising, but she may not have connected despite the social media followers. 
Milo is safe. Thought he would get through.  Danielle is in jeopardy. A little surprised Gen how voters climb to other dancers with disabilities.  Evanna is safe.  Mary Lou is in jeopardy. Little surprised but she wasn't great.
I know hardly anyone from the cast of the junior edition.
Twist, John is actually safe and doesn't have to dance.
Mary Lou. Needs to work on her feet, she doesn't seem to bend her knees at all and makes it wooden. A little high but I'll give her the scores.
Danielle. She forgot part of the routine and got a little stuck. I'll give her the scores.
Nikki. Still no hips in…

Yay! No more pink for a while!


Although it's not until page 5 that I get the slightest hint of the subject of this piece.

Anyway, off to crochet pumpkins.
