I bought a beautiful skein of hand-dyed rayon yarn from my local yarn shop. It actually is 1,200 yds of beautiful blues. The shop owner and I laughed about it being a yarn cake because of the high yardage-LOL!! I found a kimono-type sweater pattern and I started it last night. This is as far as I got:
Today while John was raking up some straw from the seeding of the backyard lawn, I was in the house making a birthstone bird nest necklace for a customer. She has 2 sons and their birthstones are blue topaz and sapphire. I used some Swarovski crystals for the "eggs". I think it turned out really pretty!
After making the necklace I decided to have a cup of hot tea this afternoon. It is chilly here because of the rain. The showers are really making our flowers pop! Here is some coral bells in the front garden.
This Saturday has been a really good one! Jenny brought Owen and Jack to our house for a visit!! What a great visit it was!!!
Hope everyone had a great Saturday too!!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
