Dark Side of the Moon

After knitting the cowl disaster, I am going for something easier.  Socks.

 

The yarn is called Dark Side of the Moon #4 by Must Stash Yarns.  Its OCD yarn as it comes in two perfectly matched mini skeins so both socks can be exactly the same.  This excites me more than I care to admit.  I don't know if they make this color any more, but I do love the two perfectly matched mini skeins.  Be sure to check them out, there are some lovely colors for knitting.

Floral Tapestry

I took a Floral Tapestry class by Kevin Womak.  The pre-class work was to cut out flowers.  I started muttering after I cut the first five flowers.  I was only going to do a tiny bud vase, but I kept cutting.  I got to class and Kevin was so inspiring I went nuts.

 

This is where I ended up after class.  A beautiful wall hanging that is all quilted.  All I need to do is trim it up and add the binding.  I am really glad I kept cutting.  If you ever get the opportunity, take any class you can from Kevin.  Totally worth your time.

Lone Starburst

The Lone Starburst Quilt top is finished.  

 

The  pattern is designed by Kimberly Einmo.  Now it goes into the "Quilting" queue.

 

For some reason, I have a lot of leftover diamonds.  What to do, what to do?

Amaryllis

David is so happy with these amaryllis.

 

We are lucky and they come back every year.

 

I guess they like having a giant Southern Magnolia for a neighbor.

Rainy Day Visitor

I had a visitor during the last rainstorm.

He didn't stay long.  Safe travels little turtle.
