I was cleaning out a drawer a few weeks ago and found these seed packets. I have tried to get some flowers started from seed in the last few years, because it is cheaper and a lot more fun to watch them grow from seed. Also, when the rabbits eat the flowers I don't feel as disappointed. One year I was so excited to buy some flowers that I thought were just beautiful as I was planting them, but my excitement turned to sadness when the rabbits ate them all the way down to nothing, and they never came back. Now I have become less ambitious about planting flowers. It is still sad if the seedlings get eaten but I haven't spent as much money on them.
I started knitting a scarf that will either be for me or Maddie. This yarn came in a basket we won about a year ago. There was an odd assortment of yarn in this basket. Not much more than 2 small skeins of most of it, so whatever I do with it will have to be something small. This yarn is very very soft and I am pretty sure little Maddie will like it. I also bought the Spring issue of Debbie Bliss's magazine because I would like to make the cover shawl. I recently visited our yarn store on Main Street and they were so nice I wanted to purchase something. I just got the magazine and one $5 pattern for a child poncho for Maddie. I was proud of myself. I really have been trying to curb my spending sprees because we have so many home projects that are going to end up costing a depressing amount of money.
I also thought I would try to draw this picture we have in our bathroom. It is a little hard to tell from the photo but it has a three dimensional texture to it. I thought that might make for a challenge on the drawing. I may be in over my head though and have to try something else.
I am really hoping for a very relaxing slow weekend, because we haven't had one for several weeks, it seems. Hope your weekend is a good one and thanks for reading my blog!
