Right! I've got lots of bits and bobs to cover, and no way to get it all to fit into one coherent post, so we're having a random post today. With pictures. Lots of 'em.
1. Phil's kite!
A few of you mentioned you wanted to see Phil's latest kite, the 500 square foot monster that invaded every livable space in our home for more weeks than I care to remember. These ones are for you!
Not too shabby, eh?
2. Garden update
Stuff is growing! Stuff we can actually EAT! Really! On Friday, I turned this:
Which later became this:
Kids hated it, of course, but Oh. My. God. My mouth is pulling a total Pavlov just LOOKING at that picture.
I started a new quilt! I joined the We Can Do It! Skill Building Sampler, and so far we've made 2 blocks. The QAL is going to take a year, with 3 blocks a month, each month focusing on a different technique. We've made 2 blocks so far, and I'm really enjoying it! It's a nice change from the blue and green of my "main" quilt WIP ;-)
4. Emilie !
School's out for summer, and Emilie will be moving on to second grade in the Fall. She's starting a horseback riding day camp on Monday. We bought her a pair of riding pants and boots today, and she Could. Not. Wait. to wear them. Excited? I think so!
There you have it. You're now officially in the loop about the goings-on chez Dear. We shall return to our regular semi-coherent posting après le weekend.
Happy Knitting, Everyone!
