Good morning to all and happy Sunday morning to you! It’s a quiet morning here in our house, so I’m taking advantage of it to write my post. This past week has been a busy one for me but I did manage to sneak in a bit of knitting and spinning.
I am finding myself outside more as the sun is rising earlier and our garden, and other plants, need tending too. The sky has been a crisp blue of late, the sun is warm and everything is starting to grow and bloom. Yesterday we went to see my mother-n-law and we were so amazed how clean and clear the sky was, you could see all of Phoenix. It was quite beautiful!
For the crafting side of things…
I finished my bobbin of the first set of rolags I created and its resting on the rolags I will be spinning next. I have not decided if I will ply them together or separately. I really love the colors and I’m so happy I decided to separate the colors and hand blend them. I have made decent progress on my second sock and may get it finished this week. I am starting a small embroidery project, which I think will be quite fun and relaxing. And last …. I am repairing my husbands great-grandmothers and quilt. His mom gave this quilt to us a few weeks ago and I am so thrilled to have it. It is from my father-n-laws side of the family and was made in the 30s. We will also be getting another quilt from my mother-n-laws side of the family that was made by her grandmother. I love family heirlooms and will treasure these.
We did stop into Half Priced Books yesterday and I came home with two books by Daphne du Maurier that I have been looking for, which made me very happy. I thinking I may need to Read Rebecca next. I’m still searching for a couple of Mary Stewart books too and hopeful I will find the ones I’m searching for.
“I walked this land with a dreamer’s freedom and with a waking man’s perception – places, houses whispered to me their secrets and shared with me their sorrows and their joys. And in return I gave them something of myself, a few of my novels passing into the folk-lore of this ancient place.”Daphne du Maurier, Enchanted Cornwall
Looks like another lovely day here and I think I may spend my time outdoors soaking up the warmth of sun. I also need to clip a few calendula flowers for drying and clip a few herbs for tonights meal. I think today will be simply wonderful.
Have a wonderful day !
