A Finish and scraps

Hello! well I finished my cover up a day or two ago. It fits good and is nice and cool too.
I also am playing with a pattern called Buttons and bows. It is a bit hard to see with the ombre yarn but here it is.
My birthday is coming up Friday. Jack helped me pick out some self striping yarn. Most of this stuff is expensive and you do not get a lot for your money. This is from Lion Brand called Mandela and it is 590 yards for around five dollars. This color is called Spirit.
Here is a little pretty for you. We are treated to these lovely flowering shrubs when we come and go from our apartment.
Now time for some Sylvia laziness!

Thanks for visiting. Huggles and blessings.

Love my hat and blessings! Thank you so much. It fits just perfectly. I need to block it, because the rim got crumpled a bit in the mail. Do you know how to do that? I suppose I need to look it up on YouTube. ~smile~ It's going to be nice to keep my head warm. The color is nice and versatile, too.

I sometimes wish my Tiger (yellow tabby-think Garfield) was an indoor cat. I would probably get a lot of cute photos like you do of your Sylvia.

How are you and hubby feeling?

Cute cover up!

Wore my shawl to church again yesterday. It goes well with a couple of old-fashioned cotton dresses I made, and keeps my arms warmer.

Thank you for all the ways you've shown love to me!

Happy Birthday to you! How special is that and I hope you celebrate all week long. =) Your new yarn is ever so pretty, it will bring you pleasure to work with I think. It does beat all how you start and finish things so regularly. I admire you for it.

Miss Kitty is adorable. Very. =)
