Sosae Caetano invited others to join her in posting about works in progress on Wednesday. I do get excited seeing what others are creating and it encourages me to complete my long list of projects, so I decided to try to join in. On the right sidebar I have links to others who are participating as well and I hope you will visit them.
The first picture in this post is of the moreno blanket I am knitting. I have posted about it before, but it has grown since the last time I showed it to you...honest =) It is just simple straight knit knit knitting. Most recently I watched Downton Abbey, and the State of the Union Address while knitting it. I bought it as a kit from Morehouse Farm which is across the Hudson River and a bit south of where I lived for 15 years in Saugerties, NY. I think that this February would be the perfect time to finish it and decide whether I am going to keep it for myself or gift it to someone. For the photo I positioned it below the beautiful cotton blanket Shari crocheted and I won from her blog, Lauren's Closet. She sent it to me around Christmas time along with a beautiful ceramic angel wishing Joy to the World. I treasure Shari's generous gifts and she inspires me to want to complete more and more yarn projects.
Since tomorrow is a special time for some to give hearts and flowers, and our Oregon weather is a bit gray and misty, I thought I would share my first outdoor blooms of the new year with you, rosy red camellias! I love that the bush is so close to my front window it benefits from the warmth of the house and rewards us with lovely blossoms in the middle of winter.
So Happy Valentine's Day, Family and Friends!!!
I am grateful for your part in my life.
Love with Hugs from,
