I finished the first of my Hudson Bay camp blankets that I started back in October. I love the deer fabric on the back, wish I had more of it. I had to beg my daughter to come outside and hold the quilt up for pictures when there was a brief 25 second window in between rain showers. The last storm that came through was a doozy, and we lost several branches off our birch trees due to high winds. The yard was a complete mess afterwards. So I spent yesterday raking and sweeping and tidying only to find out we have more of the same coming in tonight. Guess I could have waited but the sun was shining and it felt good to get outside in the fresh air.
Its hard to believe that just a few months ago the ground and vegetation here was crispy, dry and crunchy. Now our small seasonal pond which collects the runoff water is full, and there are mushrooms sprouting all over!
The last picture is a three pack of blank journals that I bought when I was out Christmas shopping. I have dedicated one to crochet/knitting, one to quilting, and the last to random ideas in general, although it seems to be leaning more toward gardening at the moment. The crochet/knitting has come in handy already, as I am logging in my projects listing the hook/needle and yarn type. I am notorious for grabbing a crochet hook from a half finished project to start something new, then come back to the old project
Of course it could all be much simpler if I just stuck to one thing at a time (or bought a bazillion hooks and needles in every size), but where's the fun in that?
