Spurred on by DD#2's early contractions, I've really focused this week on the baby projects! The blanket is finished and ready to deliver. The frilly jacket needs a bit more seaming and its buttons. (Photo next week hopefully)
The pattern is from Churchmouse Yarns and Teas and is just a giant version of the washcloth! (with different yarn, of course)
This is the start of sleeve #2 on a sweater for big brother. It calls for Poppas instead of buttons. Has anyone used them?
Working in the yard has been high on our list, too, as the weeds took great advantage of our being gone for 10 days in June. Watching everything bloom though is a fine reward for our efforts. Much to our delight, the two calla lily bulbs planted earlier decided to sprout and this one has two flowers.
Our recent delightfully clear weather has also encouraged a few road trips. We were exploring the Key Peninsula when we came across these two young deer. I was glad they weren't in our yard as they were happily munching on anything and everything in sight.
Our sunny days have made the solar-powered garden twinkle lights very happy. They put on a show for a little while each night as soon as it begins to get dark. Now, back to work with the promise of the zoo photos soon.
