Adventure! Excitement!

Ok, maybe not so much. Today is laundry day at chez Dear (get down with your bad self!), so I'll be puttering around the house all day. On the bright side, it's supposed to be a beautiful day (28 degrees Celcius in October? Huh?), so Maxime and I should be able to enjoy a lovely walk later this afternoon.

Kate-the Enabler and I had our weekly Stitch 'N Bitch yesterday. I keep meaning to take pictures for the blog, but somehow feel that neither of us would enjoy seeing pictures of ourselves stuffing our faces with miscellaneous baked goods on the Internet :) We had a lovely time, as usual. We're also going to meet up with Robyn and Jennifer next week, and I'm super excited! Yet more mommies who knit! Woo-Hoo!!!

I've been making slow and steady progress on all three of my "current" WIPs (there may be a few in semi-permanent hiatus at the moment). My usual pattern is: sock in the morning, Tulip cardigan in the afternoon, and Emilie's sweater in the evening.

The slow and steady progress means that more pictures would be somewhat redundant at present, so I thought I'd post a few of one of my orchids (I have three at the moment). It seems I have a green thumb! This may not be the best of pictures (I'm pretty sure National Geographic won't be calling me any time soon), but DUDES! This baby is going absolutely crazy with buds.

Here's a closeup. Absolutely stunning. And they flower forever, so I almost always have an orchid in bloom in my room.

Lastly, I received these cute Soak Labels of Love (ordered from Scout's Swag) earlier this week. I've been wanting to put personalized labels in my handmade garments for some time, and when I saw them in Knitty, I just had to grab some immediately. It's not yarn, so it doesn't count!!! :)

Have a great weekend everyone!
