Hello MONDAY! My new Susan Branch book came on Saturday so by Sunday, late morning, I had consumed it. I do love Susan's chattering way of writing because it's so friendly AND orderly. Each page is gorgeous.
I am ironing at the moment. Every time the iron beeps (shutting off) I get up and iron again.
Last night I ate popcorn, watched news, and knit (Bill is in Romania). I like the turtleneck collar I decided to make instead of the tulip-y one the pattern called for. I hope the alpaca yarn doesn't make my neck red and itchy. The last thing I need is another rash.
I have quite a knitty station behind the sofa and I keep looking at the short striped sweater on the needles and thinking, "FINISH that, Pom Pom!"
Well, it's good to have a bunch of stuff for making at the ready, don't you think so?
In Susan's new book she tells about how she came upon Gladys Taber. What a GT ambassador Susan is. Is that how YOU heard about Stillmeadow?
See? I'm working on the board! I need to buy some rubber cement today and begin arranging and adding pretty stuff.
My sweet friend Betty sent me a lovely letter. I could stare at her watercolor dafs ALL DAY!
I guess I'm a sucker for a free yarny calendar. I ordered from Knit Picks for the first time. LOVE it!
I am not completely sure why I chose the dark lilac/purple yarn. I am pale and it might make me look even paler, but I think I am in the lilac mood already.
Hey! Can I see YOUR grocery list? Here is mine. I have been eating stuff out of the cupboards and refrigerator while Bill is away. Today when I took my sourdough toast out of the toaster I spied . . . MOLD. Ruh row!
And then I went outside in my jammies and captured a pansy!
And TWO lovely dafs!
My neighbor's crab apple blooms
And the beginning of this piggy plant that if not kept in check will RULE the garden
These two softies came over to say hello! Wiggle worms!
Spring has sprung even though it is a grey day. I used my better camera today and I think the key to my regular blogging is a real camera instead of my phone. I grow weary of my phone because I find it so attractive and I keep checking things which is a trapped way to treat a phone.
So, before the iron beeps again, I bid you farewell until I find pretty things to show you in the very near future!
Thank you for visiting. I love it when you pop in.
Check out what Mr. Badger is doing! He's at MK's and she took him to the river! Bliss!
