Sunday wonders - V

V is for Variety: the spice of my life. 

Yesterday, I became the Intrepid Lady Explorer for a day.  It was great fun and not as uncomfortable as I thought it would be.  I was glad I had some modern shoes to wear and we weren't hacking our way through a jungle.  Our parade got a bit straggly here as we had to stop for an unscheduled photo op.

And, later on, at the fairgrounds, our booth was on a nice grassy field.  Even better for the Lady Explorer to kick off her shoes and get down to some serious bean-bag tossing.

There was a great variety in the parade costumes.  This marching band never disappoints.

And look who came to the Show & Shine!   How many words can you find? Unfortunately for us, we couldn't play - those letters are glued down.  All over the car...inside and out.  Every surface is covered with words.

There's always variety to the day when I look into the knitting bag.  I'm still working on the turquoise week for that one.  But, my attention wandered in the direction of some pretty pink Japanese yarn that I had  found at the thrift store.  So, I cast on my End of the Summer Roses scarf using Ali Green's Chinook Scarf pattern.  One side is i-cord and one side is lace with stocking stitch in between.  Really easy and really effective. 

To me, it looks like the same color as these roses from last fall.

And then, a much-practised-for piano workshop this afternoon makes for a nice variety of activities this weekend.  I'm never bored.

What a fantastic costume! You did well.

The Chinook Scarf looks intriguing. I love the blush color.

That green grass looked very comfy on bare toes. Sounds like a fabulous way to spend a beautiful day! Good for you!
