A Friday Finish and A Round Up

After almost a month, I finally finished up my February Breed Study and skeined my lovely finished 3-ply Shetland! I ended up with 82 yards of light worsted weight yarn and absolutely love the color… such a rich red.

Oh this red … I love it !

I haven’t really been doing too much in the crafting realm these days, but I am working on the mate to my sock, which I hope to have finished soon. I also started my little sheep embroidery, which I am absolutely loving and having fun with making it my own. I have no idea how this will turn out, but once finished I plan to keep it in the hoop and hang it up on my wall.

Our garden is beginning to grow and we have the first signs of tomatoes!! This particular plant is a Husky Red Cherry tomato, which forms a long cluster. I can’t wait to see what they taste like. I have also been drying lots of rosemary, dill, oregano and mint, and our house has smelled wonderful. My husband said our kitchen smelled like an Italian kitchen when I was drying the oregano, and it really did.

I have also been busy drying calendula flowers for creating salves. This weekend I will be making my first official calendula salve with beeswax, I’m excited!

As you all know I haven’t truly blogged in about two weeks and my apologies but with a change in my work schedule and just plain life itself, I haven’t had much extra time to devote to being online. Now that I have more of a routine in place, I will be more consistent with blogging and thank you all for being patient with me.

What have you been up too this week ?

  1. I think it’s busy for everyone everywhere right now. Work has been kicking my butt too, so I completely understand! Glad you’ve been able to find at least a little bit of time to work on things you enjoy. I hope to finish up one project this weekend, get the house back in some semblance of order, and maybe do a little outdoor clean-up in between storms.

    1. I think so too Anne and hope you are able to slow down a bit too!! Sounds like a productive weekend for you. We are planning to pot a few more peppers this weekend, they will be replacing lettuce that I will be taking out … it’s ready to eat. Enjoy your day and weekend 😊
