Kitty in a Box

Kitty thinks she's hiding in that box, but I see her.

Tiny Treasures

After the first crocuses of spring, my next favorite spring milestone is when the hostas pop up through the soil. I could have a whole yard full. The last picture is a peek at my messy little windowsill above my kitchen sink. The girls and I went for a walk and we picked white and purple violets, dandelions, and fleabane. The little green vase is one I had when I was a little girl. I have no idea where I got it. I found the little gold and blue ones at a yard sale. It works out perfectly for three children who like to pick little flowers. When the sun shines through the pretty glass, it makes even my messy little windowsill pretty.

Fire-Red Infinity Scarf

Pictures just don't do justice to this beautiful yarn. I got it from my friend. A few years ago she got some sheep so she could learn to spin wool. This wool is so soft. It is hand-spun and hand-dyed by my friend. The color is a beautiful vibrant fire red with orange highlights.

Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by.  Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.  ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
