A Full Day
The two rovings are all dried and ready for some spinning which will happen another day as I have run out of time!
Time to join the cats in their favorite activity, well second fav activity (the first is eating!) and go to sleep!

We Interrupt this Knitting
The pool area is awash with flowers-all my African Irises are doing their thing......
they are so delicate and would make a nice colorway for another dyeing day!
How is this for gorgeous-it is a daylily. Enjoy it , for it's a brief visitor!
Talk about inspiration for dyeing.....just look at this caladium leaf-it is about 15" long!
The morning glories are stretching up to cover the trellis-just so beautiful.
We are not lacking for flowers and that is one of the blessings of living where we do- flowers are year round!

Two Legged Visitors!
He is so downy, fluffy and cute!
Marsel even found some time to decorate a cake!
These are the four blocks we made for our participation in the Margaret's Hope Chest quilting charity. We will revisit this pattern, string piecing-we did one set of blocks orderly and symmetrical and then pushed ourselves to make the other set of four 6 1/2" blocks randomly-it was so hard! The request was for blocks in blue, green and yellow so we dug through our scraps for these colors and had a great time!
