First, I promised pics of the sweater a couple days ago. My second Tangelo, this one made with Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton. It’s a pretty periwinkle color. Thank you Isabelle for modeling…
I have been working on my yard, turning it into a garden and I wanted to lay pavers to create a walk. It wasn’t a job I was looking forward to doing on my own, but with the baby, my husband and I don’t get much time together to work on projects. Today, however, my mother-in-law came to play with the baby, so we got to lay the walk. It went quite well, and we finished in less than 2 hours. Now mind you, it won’t be featured on any DIY Network show, or anything, but I don’t think “Holmes on Homes” would be horrified by it either! Here is the full view and a close up with the flowers my Mother-in-law brought me today!
Also, today, while the baby played with grammy, I made her a little bonnet. It’s a simplicity pattern, and it was inspired by the blog Frog Creek Cottage. It’s a delightful blog that I’m thrilled I stumbled across, and look forward to her writing more. The bonnet is fabulous and looks great on my daughter, who seems to like it. Her dad has requested I make her one in a solid color so I think she’ll have one from some chocolate brown linen soon. The other great thing about the hat is that it goes over pig tails very well!
It was a full day, that ended with a nice dinner out with my husband. I’m thoroughly exhausted and going to bed now. It is a nice feeling to go to bed tired from a hard days work!
