HOW TIME FLIES


Oh my stars, has it ever been a long time since i posted anything.

yes, i am still on the planet and busy sewing tops, quilting and of course knitting.
i have decided that ravelry- a favorite site of mine is as addictive as pinterest.
i can spend hours on either site, lately ravelry is chewing up some of my time.

nathan has been here for a week plus and how wonderful to have him home.
he and mr.p went to the big horn for some quality fishing time. now home for the holiday weekend.
we will be doing some grilling and having some family here for good eats.
the youngest came home too for the weekend......that sweet girl has switched to the night shift and has her clock all round backwards. today will be sloooow and nappy for her.
no problem though, that is the speed of my house----slow---relaxed---and please no one move too fast, it will hurt our eyes not to mention make us all anxious. the middle child [ the pie lady ] will be over later for some refreshments and good food.
she has been crazy at her newly acquire coffe-pie shop-------so so happy for her.
stop by her place this weekend if you are in the hood of laporte, 
she will be open this sunday too!

SPRING and LEAVES OF GRASS







my beautiful spring flower beds are not to be this year
the pictures above are the only spring flowers that have survived the last 5 snow storms,
[ last week's being the worst for flowers].
i did however with all our cold weather finished Leaves of Grass.
this was the most challenging knit i have ever done,
also the most satisfying! i love it ! I used an aran weight yarn so i have a beautiful pi bed spread.
if i knit it in a fingering weight yarn or a lace weight i would have a shawl to wear around town,
perhaps the next time i knit this pattern.
