Even 29 Days Is Too Few!

Lately we've had lots of little birds at our backyard feeder but none as beautiful as this painted bunting we saw in Florida! One of our birding friends said they are quite rare, so we are glad that they are being pampered with their own food at the Corkscrew Swamp. Aren't they colorful?

Here at home we are seeing a few signs of spring like these busy moles. We've been told they don't hibernate, but they sure go nuts at this time of year. Thank goodness this isn't our yard! A bunch of the critters have taken up residence on the median of the road behind our house. Reminds me of Caddy Shack!

Not too long ago I received a lovely surprise in the mail from Pam, one of her cute CQ kitties. Isn't her stitching just exquisite? Thank you, Pam!

When we were in Florida, my sister mentioned she could use some fingerless mitts. Hope she likes 'em.

DD#2 asked me to make something for her friend's baby shower. Here's what I came up with. You may have guessed; she's having a boy!

And here for your viewing enjoyment is one last photo. DH believes Max is stating his opinion about tacos' effect on mommy-milk.

Can you believe it's already March and DST starts next weekend? Who speeded up the calendar anyhow?

Max doesn't look too enthused, does he? Yes, the time is going by way too fast. Summer will be here before you know it! That's a cute baby set and I'm sure your sister will love her fingerless mitts. Great color :)

LOL! the idea of the tacos for lunch not suiting Max is too cute! Oh, he is precious!

You have been very productive in the knitting department! Love 'em all. Knitting and the love of handknits is just addictive. blessings ~ Tanna

Such pretty things...all of 'em, from the birds to the baby. I know what you mean about time speeding up. It's scary, isn't it. They say it's because we slow down. That just blows!

Hi Judy! Love all your photos! I think your sister will love the fingerless gloves...I say you can never have too many of those. I like they way you made them. Back home tomorrow! It's been a good trip. Hope you enjoy your one more day of sunshine.

Love your pics, especially the baby. Cute mitts. Is the pattern Fetching? I've done several pairs of them.

I don't know who sped up the calendar but tell them to stop! lol

Max is so cute! I love his opinion of tacos. He'll change his mind when he's older and eating everything in sight.

Max is such a cutie! February flew by for me too. But it looks like you got quite a lot of knitting done. Love the shades of blue.

You've sure been busy knitting, baby knits are sooo cute!

Linda said...

Max looks like he wasn't too pleased by the tacos! The baby gifts are so cute and the moles...crazy! Are moles the same as gophers? We get them here in early Spring and they drive us crazy for a bit...I think or at least I hope they are all gone for a while!!Have a great day!!!

Hi Judy, what a cutie! And I love the bunting. We get Indigo Buntings here in May but not the one you saw.

Hope your trip to the Midwest was a good one. We have temps in the 70's this week. The air smells good!

Hugs, Pam

Linda said... made me laugh with the Max comment :-) he's so sweet.
Your knitting looks perfect - as always Judy.
