happy valentine's day

what a great way to get wrapped up and cozy with the one you love-had tons of fun laying out and working with this quilt- i prefer it over a card- but is no substitute for cupcakes they're in the fridge for later!

sunny day on the veranda.

my co-workers can tell when warm weather is here, because i stop eating in the breakroom, and head out to enjoy the fresh air on the veranda (aka loading dock). last summer i brought our old patio table and chairs to the office so that i'd have a place to sit and eat when the weather is nice, and of course, the knitting comes with me! even in the heat of the summer the loading dock is cool and shady, so i get to enjoy my corner bistro about 9 months out of the year-often the "guys" are coming/going, and it gives me a chance to get caught up with them-several will stop to see what project i'm working on--many of them just shake their head and go inside! it's not the best view, but a nice way to break up the day.
and an update on the FLS-i totally love this project, and tried it on at home to check the fit, can't wait to get the buttons-field trip to cast on cottage anyone?

ready for anything.

my plans for saturday were to include a bit of reading, plenty of knitting, quilting, and some knitting help from mary. the tahoe was all packed and ready-- the weather gorgeous. following the short row session i headed back to the construction challenge site with plans to enjoy the sun, a cup of coffee and perhaps a snack, and make progress on the FLS-then i got THE CALL-the teacher supervising the CC got a call that her 4 year old had been injured-not wanting the kids to miss out on the last bit of the CC i told her i'd come supervise the last challenge, so she could be with her little guy- i finished up the bitty bolero, and then headed inside to spend 3 hours without coffee or afternoon snack, i took the FLS along with me, knitted away since my physical presence was all the CC required-needless to say after being away from home from 7 am- 6 pm without my routine afternoon coffee i was a bit grumpy by the time we met steve for dinner-i even felt a bit ill after dinner-not sure if it was the food, the headache, or the overly hungry feeling i had, but i was right as rain by sunday morning, and who wouldn't be with the gorgeous day, and finding this sweater-(on i so want to make this and look another top down sweater?

so all that to say-even the best laid plans can take a bit of a detour, but if you have a few of your favorite things i think it is a little easier to handle!
