When Dayle headed out to run some errands the other day I called out.. "Bring me a surprise." :-) So when he came home he had a little potted plant with two buds on it, a Ranunculus. Isn't it gorgeous?
My little Camellia is in bloom! I'd always wondered why there wasn't one here, so last year we got two little plants. We planted this in front of the chicken house in front of an old stump and it's doing very well there.
And so.. I'm back to working on the C2C (Corner to corner) crochet shawl. It had been put to the side when other projects needed to be worked on.. they are done.. now back to this.
This yarn really is soft and lovely to work with. It's the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Polo color-way.
Being more of a crocheter than a knitter, I'm pretty proud of myself that I've knitted 3 PussyHats. I am glad I know how to do both. I made my first one with a skein of pink yarn I had around the house and it was acrylic. I wanted to make one for me to wear all the time and I wanted it to be alpaca and silk. This one feels so nice.
First - for those of you who voted for the current potus and are happy with what he's doing - you will not like the hat and what it stands for. That is okay. To each his/her own.
For those of you who do not like what this person is doing, you are part of The Resistance. We are vowing to watch what is going on and fight for the rights that we've gained over 100 years of social progress. So, when I wear this, I am making a statement. I am a rebel. There it is.
The latest thing I read is that a new bill is being pushed through to cut the budget for free school lunches for those children in need. REALLY? REALLY????? Attacking the children of the country and taking away their breakfast and lunches? Some of these kids, it's the only wholesome food they get all day. Some kids cry when summer vacation starts as they won't have much to eat over the summer. I'm disgusted by this. Learn more, click HERE.
So.. keep an eye on who is voting for these horrible things and please think of replacing them in the 2018 election.
