WIP Wednesday!!

It's been a while since I've posted on WIP (work-in-progress) Wednesday!
I don't know why this picture would only load sideways?? It a super soft blanket for a friend who is due with a baby boy in about a month! I made it with this inexpensive cotton boucle yarn from Knit Picks, called Crayon, and I LOVE it! I was a little apprehensive about ordering cheap yarn without seeing and feeling it first, but it's what the original pattern called for. I love working with the yarn and I'm going to be ordering more!

Kylan told me he wanted to give Everest a knit snake for his 2nd birthday (in June). The finished snake I knit a couple years ago for Kylan:)

I finished Kylans sweater vest, he loves it! He wore it today and kept telling people 'look at my sweater vest, my mommy made it" it was too cute!!!

So that's it for now. I've been dreaming of getting my sewing machine out, but I don't have a great place to set it up & that makes it easy to keep dreaming about...

muddy days

The weather has been perfect...sunny for a few days, rainy for a few days, more sun, more rain...the garden is very happy and most my seedlings want to go in the ground! If all goes well we should have a few more garden beds built this week! Our yard has been quite muddy! Fun, messy, lots of laundry, but fun:)

One of the new beds, really just an effort to make a flat contained area. The metal and wood are all reused from structures we took down on our property. I transplanted some starts and started some areas by seed. It's been up for a few weeks so it looks different now.

G's been working on a little fort with a slide:) I'll get some better pictures when he's done...

We had a few days in the 80's and I could feel summer in the air! We even had our first veggie BBQ for the year and dinned outside. It feels like we have so much going on and I have too many thoughts and to-do list in my head! I am trying again to get into the habit of stretching and meditating at night before bed! So one more post & off I go-

Happy Easter/Ostara...

Hope you had a beautiful holiday!



Made a little progress in the garden, started lots of seeds, but hopefully not too many. At night my wee lil seedlings are warmed on our tile floor heating and set outside in the sun during the day. (Dreaming of a greenhouse!) Geoff build a large garden bed last week with scrap material, I'll try to post a picture once we plant it up:) Our garden is still a mess, so it's hard to get a decent picture!

grow tomato grow!

ah... my babies:)

Covered in bird netting because some little critter keeps digging in the soil for seeds!
As always, I can't wait to plant!!!!
