My favorite song. At dinner last night Fletch and I discusses our "favorite's" My song was What a Wonderful World. Jim picked it out for our first dance at our wedding - only dance as it turned out! My SIL Briana had a mat made for a 11x16" frame made with part of the lyrics from the song made for us for our wedding and it holds one of my favorite wedding pics in it:
For those of you saying, "wait a minute! the song actually goes: "I THINK to myself, what a wonderful world."!" I know that, so does Briana, but she said she had the frame shop redo the calligraphy so many times, she finally just went with it. It remains one of my most cherished wedding gifts.
Easter brought something interesting this year:
the easter bunny worked very hard on these little felt gnomes and their very own felted basket to go along with this great book the easter bunny had when she was little bunny. All of this was placed lovingly and with anticipation of much joy by receiving child into said child's basket. To which the child replied, "Oh Crud."
The easter bunny was not quite crushed. She does admit they are sort of creepy with, "no heads or bodies" (this is the reason that little ungrateful child gave for not liking the wee felt folks.
He is a bit more interested in the book, though the easter bunny forgot all about the really scary trolls who torture the gnomes in a most gruesome fashion towards the back of the book. She realizes that as soon as the little boy finds these pages he will probably denounce the book as even more creepy that the felt gnomes!
This particular easter bunny feels confident, though, that as this little boys grows more interested in life and bodies and all that comes with exploration he will find this book a fascinating read:
as she did while perusing all the pages like these!
On to knitting matters:
Here is the yarn I bought for a new sweater for Fletch - he picked the colors as you can see, light green and dark green. I am trying figure out from various patterns I have and a particular blogger's (pickin' and throwin') work how to make childHood - from Knitty as a pullover with a front pocket and a hood. Any thoughts, barb, would be appreciated!
the red yarn is a skein Kathy bought for me at the new and wonderful LYS we found - out of this I think I will make a shawl or wrap. Also showcased in this stunningly set up picture is the much needed ball winder I got for my birthday with a Knit Picks gift certificate from Kathy.
Som time ago (I think at least two years) I bought the blossom yarn you see on the right for the purse from Simply Noro. I never made it. I did make a hat and start a scarf but didn't love it and took it all apart. This Christmas Kathy gave me the blossom you see on the left, she remebered I wanted to make the purse, but forgot I had the yarn. So I have started the purse but am not convinced I will carry it. I am thinking about make a wrap or lap blanket for myself out of all this lovely yarn. HMMMMMM......
Jim's January Birthday Slippers, lonely and waiting for me:
And just to show off, we take a picture of Fletch in a tree each Easter. Here are the last three (the first two I don't have on my computer).:
