I thought my trumpet vine was long dead as it hadn’t bloomed in a couple years.
This morning I looked out the window and saw it was alive and well.
I also hadn’t seen the Queen Anne’s Lace blooming last year.
Apparently our rainy season combined with warm temps are exactly what was needed to bring some unexpected treasures on my walk today.
Having taken the ENTIRE weekend off and a long one at that (Wednesday through tonight), I got to enjoy some family time. DH and the youngest grandson have been busy all weekend, and I’ve spent a lot of time cooking for them. Something that surprisingly I enjoyed!
But, that didn’t meant I didn’t get “fiber” moments, or flower time. I have to have those to survive.
First I finished spinning all the singles of the Alpaca/Merino blend I’ve been working on forever:
I’ve already started plying them into a 2-ply yarn, which I hope to have finished by mid-week.
And I wove in the ends of my Vermont Shawl so that I can actually WEAR it!
And I took some time to enjoy the blossoms in the studio. My Cactus and African Violets really like the light:
This little beauty, planted in a small pot that fits inside a cup was hiding most of it’s blooms on the backside.
Now what to do with the remainder of my weekend? Dear youngest grand goes home in a couple hours and then I still have the rest of the day to go through…..do I sew, spin, knit, read a book? So many choices, but I know ONE thing I won’t be doing until tomorrow….going back to work! ;>)
Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend as much as I’ve enjoyed mine!
