Follow up!

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to show the finished mittens before they are mailed out! Also want to show you the Amaryllis in ITS FULL GLORY!

I think Elisabeth will love them. I added the i-cord so she won't lose them, something she doesn't mind having attached.

All four in full bloom

Christmas Poinsettia still doing well and still reminding me of candy canes

Up close

Does any one know what this is? It was a gift from one of my daughters. She got it at a craft fair. Well, it is a yarn nest and you hang it outside in the spring and birdies will take the rove off for building their nests. Isn't that so neat. Can't wait to put it out this Spring.....but it will be awhile, three more months of winter here!

Just had to include one of my orchids that is doing so well at my kitchen window.

Well, now I want to move on to new/old knitting projects. I will be finishing some already started projects from before the holidays. My mission is to finish projects this year and I'm pretty excited about this concept.
One is a cowl neck scarf and the other is a triangle style shawl. More on this later.

Hope this post finds you all well and having a little time to smell the roses or to pick up your craft.
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting!

  2. Lovely little mittens, and the cord is the perfct way to keep them safe too! Lovely flowers, they are so elegant aren't they! I have never seen one of those bird nest makers, but what a sweet and helpful idea. Have a happy day.

  4. The mittens are so cute, and the yarn nest is a great idea. I bet it would be easy to make one.

  5. They are lovely mittens Robin, your granddaughter will love them, how lucky she is to have her Grandma make them. I'm glad they have a cord to keep them safe...I am forever losing one glove...do you think I'm too old for a cord ;0)
