I am so ready ....

to rest my feet after a busy Memorial Day Weekend.

Believe me, my youngest grand daughter, JD kept me on my feet most of the time.

And of course she was a big help with my garden.

But now I am really ...

ready to put the spaghetti on the blocking board!

Now which shawl should I finish next?

Building Blocks for Baby ...

In Blanket form.

LinkUsing Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton. Such light, soft, cool yarn!!

Now that the squares are knit it's time to block. And if I can get this done soon, maybe I'll also get one shawl done for the month of May. The spaghetti I'm knitting comes to mind. But I'm only half way done and it needs to be at least 64" long.

We'll see. Another baby gift to cast on soon also. But I need SOCKS!!!

Just not enough time in a day wouldn't you say?

I think I have Spring Fever!

The past couple of weeks I've been working around my own front and back yard cleaning up, planting, mulching and mowing ...

Then I spent Mother's Day Weekend in New Hampshire and did a lot of walking and taking pictures just for "Artistic Inspiration" in the countryside. In a little place this side of Heaven ...

On Mother's Day morning I hated to say goodbye to my favorite daughter & the family.

But we're already looking forward to our next trip up North. Soon, very soon I hope.

So getting back after that wonderfully relaxing down-time with nature, I'm now back to knitting spaghetti ....

And seriously;
Life is Good!!
