While I've been away from the computer, I've been able to spend a bit more time working on some knitted projects. I really enjoyed getting back into some knitting. I made this with a worsted pure wool for a 15-inch pillow form.
For the back I did a simple basket weave pattern. I really like the overall texture of this pattern.
A row of vintage buttons finished it off nicely.
The pillow form is stuffed with feathers, so this makes a very squishy, comfortable cushion.
I'm sorry I've been away for so long, but there have been things changing here that are robbing me of blogging time. This isn't going to change anytime soon, so I'll see how I can manage to get in a few posts here and there.
I've not been out to the marsh since my last post, but was a bit disappointed when I did visit. The birds seem to have gone elsewhere now that the warmer weather is bringing more people down to the marsh trail. I haven't seen the turkeys at all. The number of birds in my own yard has grown considerably with the return of redwing blackbirds, grackles and robins. I even saw a turkey vulture today which was nice. Although there are still pockets of snow in the shaded areas of my yard, for the most part it's melted away at long last! It was still quite cold this past week and only got to +2 today with a wickedly strong bitter wind. Another few days and we're into April and more warm weather will follow ... looking forward to getting the patio furniture back out and actually sitting outside again!
Thanks for stopping by today!
