Fresh air and a whole day to play.......

The windows are wide open, the air is fresh and crisp.... I am waiting for my grandchildren to come visit........ it is so beautiful outside and I have the whole day ahead of me......... I pulled out my wooden tray that holds some of my many projects..... hmmmmm.... I think I will knit some cuffs, maybe add a flower or two..... a button, or maybe a rose from some muslin that has been dyed pink and stamped with a french word or two.....
What are you doing today?


When my daughter and her children get here we are going out for dinner (the Dutchman, his cousin and I have birthdays) to celebrate and then off to see "Alice"!!!!!!!

where the wild things are....

Whether you have ever read the book or not you will want to see this movie..... I loved it! It reminded me of when children used to play with their imagination..... the times when you played outside.... all day! I am not sure if it is meant for little people to watch, it's more of an adult movie that takes you back to your childhood. The characters are so interesting and the costumes amazing..... I am definitely going to buy this one....

A Gift for a Friend.........

I am having lunch with a friend today, I always try to take something little and homemade......
At five thirty this morning I leapt out of bed when I realized I had forgot all about my lunch date....... ahhhh..... what to do?!!!! Then I remembered I had this wonderful pink teacup and a small scrap of beautiful pink wool, it's okay........ you can always make a pin keep for a friend. I know I love to get them and there are so many ways to decorate them.
This made me wonder, what do you do for your friends when you need to whip up a little gift?
I would love to know what kind of things you create!!!!

I added some hand dyed muslin roses I had made a few days ago.......
Made a little strawberry for a sweet touch..... love those little strawberries....
