🦢 As I added more rows past the peach row of sunset colors in my Dune afghan - I just did not like how that peach color looked - and so I spent time yesterday ripping out 10 rows of crochet of 5 colors and rolling them into little balls. And then of course I had to go to the Wool Warehouse website and order a few more colors that melted into the colors that DO work. That order has been delivered to DHL and will make its way to me, hopefully this week. Meantime I'm weaving in ends to get it ready for when the new colors arrive.
AND.. look what arrived on Saturday? My next blanket yarn! Do check out Lucy's introduction post to the blanket, click HERE. It will be a CAL (crochet-a-long) with many other Lucy lovers all around the globe.
I am VERY happy to think this blanket project will brighten up my long, grey, cold, winter. I think I'm going to work the colors from the darkest to the lightest and repeat.
My friend Diane dropped by to visit and brought us some more cookies made by her talented baker son who lives with her. He works in a coffee shop and keeps them supplied with cookies and scones.
I was amazed at all the intricate designs on these spice cookies.
I like this one of a man, woman, dog and apple tree. Is she holding a hat on her head, or ?
This one has a mill house on it with what I believe is a goat and apple tree.
And a diamond shaped cookie.
The Tundra Swans are back in Mirror Lake by Rooster Rock. They come here from their nesting grounds in the Arctic Tundra. My kind hearted husband took my big camera down and got some photos for me as I was still staying off my knee. Good news.. I'm fairly well mended and getting around better. Thanks for the good wishes.
There are also Mallards, Canada Geese and Blue Heron that make this lake their home.
See the Great Blue Heron? I'm very upset with blue herons right now. We've had one "fishing" in our pond and we're afraid that all our koi have been eaten. :-(
This photo captured a swan in flight and a Blue Heron.
I'm just happy to have the swans back.. for a time. Last year I missed getting a photo of them. Thanks, Dayle!
Another mandala, this one with strawberries, leaves and flowers.
Today Dayle is going to go out hunting and gathering for our Thanksgiving dinner - all the fresh vegetables, sparkling apple cranberry juice, staples, rolls and the fresh turkey, about 26 lbs. What a feast we'll have. There will only be 6 of us as our older son and his boy both have to work. Have a wonderful week!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
