I've managed to knit a bit on the Gladys sock-I did turn the heel at least!
(Little Tornado has been sick and the whole house has been turned on its head!
We do not sleep at night and since my 8 hours recharge is absolutely necessary to then make it through the day, it has been rough for both of us!)
I went to quilting for a few hours on Monday and managed to piece this lap robe top. It is made of men's suiting samples!
It has such a great woolen smell when pressing it!
I organized all the squares and have enough for three more lap robes.
I have to wait to finish these because I back them with polar fleece instead of batting and backing.
I will get to the store to purchase some yardage next week I hope!
This water iris is so pretty-it is in the pool area.
Right outside of the patio is a rain lily. It is pretty tangled through all the year but when the May (late this year) rains hit, the flowers are stunning
AND they smell delicious!
There are tons of blooms on one stalk so it is a real show-stopper!
The mandavilla is doing its thing-bloom after bloom in this bright red!
And the ground orchids are all in bloom-these little blooms are so intricate
and delicate looking but stand up to drought or heavy rains both.
A real survivor!
I might be blurry-eyed but I can still see the beauty around me!
