Sunshine and Shade

Out in the sunshine, we are...

Being greeted in the morning to the sight of these little glories (and my favorite Oasis song going 'round in my head).

Watching out for the first grape tomatoes. Hopefully, maybe soon?

Continuing to enjoy these lovelies.

Seeking shelter in the shade, we are...

Enjoying some time together making things. So many fabulous projects in this book for all ages and interests.

Practicing and (re)learning how to crochet. Maneuvering a hook does not come as naturally as knitting with two needles, but having lots of fun anyways.

Waiting for the Yarn Shoppe to be opened for business and being thankful for the imagination of little ones. More room for the stash!

Vitamin D by Heidi Kirrmaier

Finding some quiet time to knit on this at the end of a busy day.

(check out these wonderful blogs participating in WIP Wednesday with TAMI'S AMIS)


  1. That activity book looks so cool ;)

  2. You've been busy! And all of it looks like so much fun. I must admit, I'm terribly jealous of your morning glories and your hydrangeas -- two of my favorite flowers that aren't Colorado friendly. I guess I'll just enjoy yours. :)

  3. Ooo, I liek the cardigan!

  4. I am so envious of your hydrangeas...mine have NEVER bloomed...EVER... :(

  5. Love the little bowl. I may have to make some more felted knit bowls. I am sure I have something that needs to be corraled!

  6. I love those little activity books!

  7. the sweater looks gorgeous! And so does the gardening and the other crafts of course ;)

  8. Nice post! It sounds/looks like you are having a wonderful summer, and getting plenty of Vitamin D along with your daily fiber!

  9. Your Vitamin D looks gorgeous, such a lovely colour.

  10. Off to hunt out that book. Looks perfect for the summer holidays x

  11. I love the crocheted bowl! I am also trying to teach myself a bit of crochet. I saw a few free patterns for doily-style washcloths and am thinking I'll give them a try with leftover cotton fairly soon. And your Vitamin D progress is lovely!
