Let The Celebrating Begin...


Okay...so Marianne gave me the "Go Ahead" to begin celebrating early! I'm gonna grab that "Wild Chicken" and have a blast! What an appropriate card...and check out those cute Celtic stitch markers! THANK YOU MARIANNE! I love them!

It's been a while since I've posted any pictures from my garden...well, there's been NO rain here! I think we have about a 6 inch deficit...
Here's one from my pond...the one place water is at a constant level!




Last year this water lily didn't bloom, I think it's making up for it with this years beauty!

There's lots of knitting going on...trying to play catch up with my MS3 project, I'm still one clue behind! I must be the one who "hit the dog" (Poor pup...the dog is fine...I guess he'd crossed that road all his life and never thought on that day it would be any different...the rider/bike took the brunt of the accident) in the Tour de France Fleece, I'm seriously behind and I believe coming in last!
My fiber room is somewhat organized now...lets see how long it will last...No, I'm not posting pictures of it! Through the process it does make me realize just how much my stash has grown! Oh well, she who dies the with most....WINS! I think I've been topped, check out this Chick's stash! WOW!! Thanks Bobbi for posting about this last week, now I know I'm not out of control.

Thanks again Marianne!

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!

You are very welcome, Robin, when I saw the Celtic designs I knew they needed to be yours. I love that card, I would so ride one of those chickens!
Beautiful water lily!
yep, I saw that stash a few days ago, nearly fainted, wow.

Love the stitch markers. And what a beautiful flower. But, oh, that stash! I practically passed out. Then I showed it to DH. Makes mine look small, indeed, which is a very good thing.

Great stitch markers. I need to get some fancy ones. I only have one beaded type and the I guess old fashioned plastic ring type!
Wishing I had a pond! Any frogs or fish in there?

Bobbi said...

I don't think you could have waited all the way to your birthday! Great cards and markers!

The stitch markers are FABOO. But that stash is..... too much for words. Did you notice there's a couch in there with a pillow so she can sleep surrounded by yarn? wow Can one person use that much yarn in one lifetime? I bet she's out buying more RIGHT NOW. lol

The markers (Marianne's completely amazing)are lovely and your waterlily photo is incredible.

I followed your link to the "world's largest stash" and my bottom jaw hit the floor. Wow! My lone laundry basket (filled with fiber) & I aspire to that! LOL Have a great day.
