Monica Shirt

I found this little tank-top shirt to make for the Aine & her cousins. I picked up some yarn and am finished with the front of one. I have already decided future ones will be knit on circulars - no seaming that way. It is a really easy pattern and knits quickly.

New Kicks

I finally spent my Christmas gift from my parents. I am now the proud owner of a pair of Bordeaux colored Birks.

Burn it Off

Yesterday I tested the theory that you cannot burn your fat off from friction. Apparently you just get major chafing burns. Oh well, I guess I have to keep running. From now on I will wear the appropriate attire and not just cotton workout shorts.

I LOVE gardening. Don't tell anybody! I love seeing our vegetables peek out and watching the kids spot them. I enjoy handing Eamon and Aine peas fresh from the garden. Their faces light up when they experience the tastes. I am amazed at how well our garden is doing.
Our winter garden was great, however it is currently infested with bugs. We brought a bevy of ladybugs home today and set them free this evening. Hopefully they can do their thing, and we can plant some summer crops there.Our spring/summer garden is beginning to be planted, and I hope for good results as well. We lost quite a bit to the frost, so I planted new basil.
Here are a few of my favorite pictures. I am really happy that the sunflowers bloomed.

Birthday Crown

Here is a felt crown I made for one of my nieces. It took me a bit to figure out the design, but I think it turned out nice. The verdict will come when she opens her present.


Not much has happened in the crafting arena since my lst posts. I made and threw away a pair of socks. I finished a purse for Amy's birthday. I have many projects waiting - just need to get started. I am alone today, so I should be crafting *shrug*
