My dear friend Caitlyn just challenged me to post to my blog, everyday, for the next 30 days! I’ve agreed. There is so much to share with you, my friends… it is going to be difficult to pinpoint a starting place.

Do you like lists? I LOVE lists. I make them all of the time. Lists for groceries and bills, books and dreams, friends and plants…you get the idea. So here is a list of items I will be sharing with you this week:

1. Chickens in their tweens.

2. Quilt of loooove. (my darling husband even helped me pick out the fabric!)

3. Vintage reproduction crochet and knitting projects. (Which I have been fiendishly translating and tweaking into new patterns for your enjoyment!)

4. Our urban farm. (Well, our garden really…but a farmgirl can dream, can’t she?!)

5. New sewing projects, including tips for your amusement.

6. Embroidery!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog everyone, and I hope to see you here soon!

i have been slowly, but ever so surely plugging away at this shawl. the pattern is called “kimono” from interweave’s book, “folk shawls”. the yarn is by fleece artist, blue face leicester in their moss color-way. i like it a lot so far!
i especially love the garter stitch edges…so pretty!
i was getting sooo excited about easter this morning, i decided to buy some egg dye… and was struck by the humor printed onto the label of the vinegar bottle:
“fit to be dyed”
good stuff.
as a testament to their love of Design (yes, with a capital D) my mister’s brother bob and his fancy wife jill, gave us this uber chic set of bowls as a wedding gift!
(we debated for a while whether or not they were cups or bowls, finally after checking out the website…we discovered that yes indeed-ie…they are bowls) just looking at them on the countertop makes me feel oh-so-modern.
i love the melon-like colors…
happy spring!
