in the middle of a cold winter,
My main gardener helped with the watering and mulching.
Checking on the carrots, I pulled on one that looked nice, and look what I pulled up.
It was over an inch in diameter and six inches long.
And here all this time, I wondered if they were doing anything?
Firstborn washed it at the faucet and ate it...saying it tasted "alive."
I pulled another, washed it and ate it. They weren't sweet enough and need a little more time.
I completed the first birthday outfits I had been working on, wrapped them up and gave them away.
The blue twill Children's Corner Baby Bubble pattern.
The very manly camo Children's Corner Johnny shortall pattern,
lined and piped in hunter safety orange of course.
What? You don't take pics of your pin cushion? ;)
The next little project on my craft table.
Two Children's Corner patterns combined together...an baby bubble idea from facebook that had me curious from the get-go.
I combined the bubble bottom of the 6 mo. Taylor pattern with the top of the 6 mo. Becky pattern.
It will have a little sleeve ruffle and button up the back like the Baby Bubble pattern.
If it comes out cute, you'll see it finished and if not...oh well, you'll never see it. :)
Oh, and that trip to the yarn store a couple Saturdays ago...
I had the boyfriend scarf pattern on the brain and bought accordingly.
It was on sale and by the time I knit it up, it will be considered stash...
and we all know stash is "free!"
For now, I'm working on my baby blanket, here and there, when I have enough time to finish a row or four.
I've just added the fourth "cake" of seven, a lovely robin egg blue.
I tend to make mistakes when I put my piece away mid-row.
Mistakes lead to wailing and gnashing of teeth and such.
The blanket is now as long as my lap and gets warmer by the row.
I think that is all for now -
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
It's hard to believe the end of January is already here...gosh, the new year just started.
