Unpacking

Look at the gift that awaited us when we arrived home.  There are tons of these gorgeous apple blossoms on our little tree.  The weather wasn't rainy while we were away - and still isn't - so the bees will have a chance to spread the pollen around.  I can hardly wait to see if we get any apples this year.

This funky birdhouse needed a new home...thanks, Deb!  We're always happy to take in strays.  The ladder is out and the drill is charged up.  I wonder if the birds will be impressed with the decorating style?



And, of course, there was some yarn tucked into a corner of the suitcase.  I seemed to have concentrated on sock yarn...is anyone suprised at that?  There are a couple of different cottons because I don't have enough cotton socks, apparently. And some bamboo which is a lovely silvery blue. 



And this gorgeous wool from Fleece Artist.  Aren't they great colors?  If you know the Nova Scotia tartan, you can see why this colorway is named 'Nova Scotia" .  Of course, any sock yarn can be re-purposed - scarves, shawl, mitts?

I'd better get clicking though, that stash mountain is not getting any smaller.

I missed you!!!! Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on my blog, you can make a gal feel so good! The yarn is amazing, I want to absolutely internalize it! The colors you continue to pick are breathtaking! I love the turtle crossing and that CAKE!!! You get better and better! Sorry I missed most of the trip, guess God had a little trip of his own planned for me.

Stephanie, that bird house is yelling my backyard, again and agian. Where did you every girlfriend - tell...

Love the colours of your yarn, yes living beside Nova Scotia you get to know all the tartan around. We here on PEI the crafters that is have been looking for a long time for PEI tartan, seems the producers are waiting for a larger demand before they make us happy.

Outside work, building a deck, and pathway has kept me busy while you were away, glad your back. I can't get over that bird house, what art, the ladies who come for tea would absolutely be stunned to see such in the garden. Oh, yes, the birds will think they have moved into a penthouse.

I find the birdhouse very decorative ;-)
Good luck with the appletree - remember, when times come, to cut some of the small fruits away, if they sits to close...
