Nancy (left) and I taught together years ago and have stayed in touch over the years through thick and thin. Her sister Susan lives on San Juan Island and recently lost her husband to Alzheimer's Disease.
We aso visited Ana-Cross Stitch, a fun needlecraft shop where this guy was sitting outside. (Don't worry, it isn't Dick!)
Hope to finish this baby hat this week. The yarn is a cotton and wool mix.
The stitch on the cowl is called bamboo stitch. It's easy and looks nice on both sides!
No weekend at home is complete without seeing Max and Stella! Max and I love to read together.
Miss Stella is quite adept with her feet! She's nine months old now and will soon be crawling. She's already been into Max's toys, so the next few weeks should be very interesting.
While we were gone to MN, the garden kept growing, only to be outpaced by the weeds. Even this pretty columbine has gone crazy and is everywhere. It's not a weed by any means but does need to be reined in a bit. And then there's the buttercup! Yikes! It has to be one of the most tenacious weeds ever, that and bindweed. Yep, the garden is a-calling....loudly these days. See ya!
