Rainy Day and Grandma's Garden
We have been enjoying a few rainy days and tomorrow has promises of more. No complaining here the ponds are filling up and the pastures are even holding water. Everything is green and the trees are putting on lots of blooms. Spring is here!
While the rains come down in the evenings I've been finishing the binding on the Give Ye Thanks and have it almost completed. To rest my fingers I have been pulling loops on "Grandma's Garden" a 2012 project by LJ Fibers. It's a two part series and I have finished the first part and will continue with the 2nd part when it arrives in October.
It was a very fast one to hook. I love the colors in this project. Laurie does a fabulous job dyeing the wools.
Sloan has been playing on the porch riding his bicycle and playing with a puppy someone dropped off and we found it hiding in a big pile of wood in the pasture. He has named him "Biscuit"....I will have to take a picture of the two as they have become great friends. Along with daily checks on the cat that has 6 kittens that has made her little family's home in Danny's tractor we have been dodging rain drops back and forth to the barn. Well I guess you could say never a dull moment around this little farm.
Time to clean up the wool dust and hit the hay! Tomorrow a little boy returns for more fun and I'll try my best to finish the binding on the Give Ye Thanks....then back to hooking on the Big Farm Scene rug....after that it will be time for something small :)
