It's been raining...and raining...
and raining some more today.
You know how much I love it!
I still laugh at myself for thinking it'll rain hard for 10 minutes then
stop for another 8 months like it did in Las Vegas.
(even though I know better here in Seattle.)
It's funny what you become accustomed to over the years.
So I sat, drinking hot tea by the fireplace,
(a loose leaf blend called "Seattle Sunset" from Savrika Tea in Kirkland )
listening to the rain against the window.
I started crocheting star garland with my favorite, linen yarn.
Star garland...for the holidays, or everyday.
You can make them any size, or any color.
I'm using a 3.50mm steel crochet hook with linen yarn.
Step 1: Ch 5, join with a slip st to form a ring.
Step 2: Ch 3. 14 dc into the ring. Slip st to 3rd ch of ch3 to form a circle.
Step 3: *Ch 5. 1 sc in 2nd ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in next ch,
1 tr in next ch.Skip 2 dc, slip st in next dc.
Repeat from * to *…
One of my favorite springtime activities is watching all the little Chickadees
that frequent our bird feeder.
So inspired by all the little Chickadees here, I made this cute little
I was as happy as the Chickadees when I discovered that the little Lilac
tree I've had in a container on the deck for 4 years started blooming
Of course, they are too small to cut and I am sure the whole
plant could use some TLC since it just wintered over as is,
but this little Lilac tree has given me hope that wherever it
might end up this summer will continue to thrive and bloom
in the future.
For those of you that follow me on Instagram
you might have seen that I am working on a new pattern called
The Hotel of Bees Shawl.
The pattern consists of sections that resemble honeycomb, and little
bees like in the photo below.
It's such a fun pattern to work. If you'd like more information about the
pattern, crochet along, or the pattern designer you can…
