Budding out

Last weekend I started the annual “I am going to try to keep things tidier routine”.

This year I started with the purchase of a new (to me) glass cabinet for my favourite dust catchers – the bone China Florals.  My collection is growing in leaps and bounds!  This is fun!

The cabinet sits in the corner beside my knitting chair and I will be able to look at the flowers all year long!

I have two rooms left to vacuum and dust and then my Spring cleaning efforts will be done until next year!

Gloriously bedazzled Camellia.  Crystalline raindrops festooning every petal!

The Camellia bush in the front yard is just starting to bloom. The mild Winter and early Spring has brought the blooms on early!

It has been raining pretty steadily here for the last day or so.   Beautiful,blooms accented with crystal raindrops has been the result!

Camellia blooms really do not care for the rain – they will quickly turn brown and fall off the bush, but right now they are glorious!

There is more pink in the house right now – some new yarn from The Buffalo Wool Co..

The amazing Shimmering Sexy DK in a deep rose.  I am itching to start working with it, but…..


Only 2 squares left, plus the edging and tassels!  I am feeling like it is now only a small matter of time!  (Despite the evening’s major mistake – 2 hours of knitting needs to be taken back!)

I hope that you have had a great evening!  I certainly hope that it was more productive than mine!

Happy Knitting
