On Friday I crocheted the Butterfly Garden square (blue).
On Saturday I crocheted the Duckbill Dalliance square (red).
On Saturday after we finished the farm chores, we drove out to an organic farm near Woodend to deliver Buster the Maremma. I knitted and farmer Bren drove. We got lost. Eventually we got found. We won't be following google maps again in a hurry.
It was fun visiting another organic farming family, watching the reunion of Buster and his sister Joey and talking all things cows and sheep and chooks and vegies. It was not so much fun having my shoulder treated and crying in front of about 10 fascinated onlookers.
Saturday was Mothers Day. I woke up to millions of cards, three pots of geraniums and 13 rose bushes. I cooked up a pancake feast, we watched a movie, ate popcorn, played pass the parcel and did the farm chores. I crocheted the Diamond Petals square, we ate lentil pasta for late lunch and chocolate pudding for dinner. It was the greatest day. I felt well spoilt and well loved.
I used to think Mothers day was the best when they were babies, but I can see now that it's only getting better.
A new week.
I wonder what it has in store for us.
What have you been up to?
What have you got planned?
Do you wear red clothes?
Do you think red clothes make you happy?
Do you like the little bias binding trick I used to weigh down the skirt and make it hang better?
What's making you happy?
PS. All the links to the squares I have been crocheting are on my Ravelry project page here.
