Danish Doll Hat

I finished it last night.  I think it turned out well.


We had frost this morning.  The geese didn’t seem to mind.  They still managed to eat the neighbors grass seed.  I think these are Canada Geese.  Delmarva Geese don’t get up this early.


Doug had already brought in the summer flowers.  Now we’ll have leaves all over the house all winter.  Whoopee.

Yeah, The Sun is Out

Noro sockI finished one sock.  It was fun to make.  The yarn is a bit wonky, but it should soften after washing.The yarn is 30% nylon so I am assuming they will last.  The yarn over have me worried.  Maybe I will give them to someone and let them worry about it.

I spent a long time going through the new software and moving things around to where I liked them.  I have a better understanding of what it can do and I am beginning to like it.


Mother\'s Day

I got this from my children.  It’s really great because it is actually five potted flowers that I can plant outside and enjoy for months to come.  Do they know me or what?

I have never been big on Mother’s Day and they know it, but sometimes I get something neat like this and that what makes it really special.  When they were little, I didn’t really have any money for extras.  We celebrated birthdays and Christmas and I made them up for Halloween.  I told them that I knew they loved me as much as I loved them and gifts were not necessary.  When they started school, they brought me homemade cards that I still have ‘somewhere’. 

Are those walls too pink?  They make me feel happy.  It beats the crap out of the nothing color that was up there before.

Isn’t this a great card?  Socks are very important to me.  I have two drawers of them.  I can’t stand getting my feet dirty. 

Flower Mart Day?

PeonyPeoniesNasturismI’m not sure.  It’s always on Wednesday in May.  It’s around the Washington Monument in downtown Baltimore.  I went a few times when I was little with Nanny.  She was so much fun.  We were always taking buses and streetcars.  I had no idea where I was going most of the time.  Sometimes we went shopping, but often we looked at houses.  My mother said they moved a lot when she was growing up.  Nanny made me feel special.  She taught me how to embroider and how to sew.  She often cut things out for me because she said I always looked like I was in pain.  Actually, this was true because I am left-handed and I never had a pair of right-handed scissors until I was an adult.  She also tried to teach me how to crochet right-handed, but she gave up.  I finally learned left-handed when I was in my late twenties.  Nanny loved flowers.  These pictures are for her.  I felt loved and I loved her.

We rode down to Bethel this afternoon and this is some of what we bought.

The peonies that I brought from the other house seem to be doing very well. I can’t wait for them to open.

More later.
