A Garden Dibber!

Yes, a garden dibber-check out the link for more details but it is a stick for planting seeds or bulbs!  And because you were the only one with a right answer, Jessica, I am sending it to you! I even tried out my new birthday present--a woodburner tool!
Yes, today is my 65th birthday!

While in the garage workshop, 
I put the finishing touches on the latest snowman!  
He's a table one at 6";  made from a camphor branch. 
 (no splits in this one!)

I whipped this off--an interesting knit
 but my carried yarn shows through too much for my taste! 
 I got it out of my system anyway! lol
Now this I enjoy and I have another pair on the needles
 because I can't stand the pain cold weather gives me in my hands especially!  In black, they look like real biker's gloves which the pattern is modeled after!  ( Tough and Toasty)



  1. A very useful too. Congrats to Jessica!

    The snowman looks very pleased.

    Merry Christmas to you and all your family. Hope you have a wonderful day of celebration.

  2. Happy Birthday!

    I just love your snowmen!

  3. Happy Birthday to you! I had never heard of a garden dibber before. Now that would be a useful tool. (If I ever have a garden again!)
    The ball ornament looks nice. I don't think anyone except another knitter would see the yarn and I wouldn't have noticed if you didn't point it out! :-)
    Mr. Snowman also looks so happy and cheery. You are definitely on a roll with them.
    Do you have big plans for your day today? Cake? Chocolate?

  4. That is so clever!! I love to see my bulbs pop up in the spring. It's so exciting. Last year was underwhelming so I think I need to plant some more. I wish I had thought of it earlier. I guess it will have to wait until next year now.

  5. Glad you had an enjoyable birthday! Does the snowman still smell like camphor wood, or does the smell get lost under the varnish?

The irises are everywhere!  So beautiful! The rocks I brought home from Lake Ontario;   mostly granite with jasper, quartz and basalt. Being...
