A picture is worth 1000 words....

There is not easier way to tell all my bloggy friends what I have been up to, than with some pictures!  I have always been impartial to the "eye candy" in magazines and books...even with others blogs.  I go straight for the pictures, then go back and read.

Above:  made a trip to the farmer's market for some geraniums for the front porch!

My rooster watches over them.

I also picked up a bouquet of flowers for $10.  They look so pretty sitting atop my antique sewing machine cushioned by a doily made for me by my Grandma Esther.

I have spent most of the week knitting up these little wash clothes, some of which have already been snatched up by my mom!  LOL!  I love the colors!

I think baskets and knitting belong together!  This is a little fanny basket I wove years ago.  It has me longing to do another!  Maybe vacation time will allow me to make a basket!
See what I mean?  I even knit up a little basket weave clothe because I was so inspired!
It's a great cloth.  Perfect for a dish cloth.  Just knit 5, purl five pattern that you switch every five rows.

Also finished crocheting up this maxi vest for an etsy order.  I really like it, and love the length (which was her request)...I could easily wear this!

An impromptu visit to my local yarn shop Friday ~  I could have brought home more easily!
A buddy showed by at my door with this tray in her hand and a big smile on her face!  I LOVE IT!  Of course, it has roosters, and the black and white is awesome!  THANK YOU...THANK YOU...THANK YOU!

I must also admit that the new gimp program Brad loaded on my laptop has roped me in and I am addicted.  I have had so much fun playing with my photographs in it, and trying to learn the ins and outs.  This is my farmer's market after I "gimped" them!
Bye for now!
I hope to be back later this week with the beginnings of a new project!

Love the pictures, Dawn!
I also have been making washcloths, but in my case, crocheted ones. Funny thing is that I also made a weaved one...
have a wonderful Sunday
