In my last post, I promised an update on my crochet project.
I'm in the fourth color section of the mosaic and I am really enjoying the pattern. I'm using Vanna's Choice yarn, which is one of my favorites to work with. It is cushy, soft and feels more luxurious than the cost per skein.
The yarn I ordered to complete the 2nd half of the blanket came in last week. Since I don't have any spring flowers yet, I'll revel in the pretty yarn colors.
I also ordered yarn for my next project.
I'll share more on that when I get closer to working on it.
Both projects are gifts for family members.
Our fence was complete last Wednesday. They finished two days early, which worked out great as the next day it poured down rain!
The fence allows our dog to roam freely and we can play fetch with her without the worry of her running off.
It also gives some dimension to our yard.
I've already started to dream (and plot out) different landscape ideas.
It all takes time (and money), so we'll do things as both allow.
We built our first raised bed on Saturday.
We mixed our soil, and planted 75 strawberry plants. I could barely move by the end of the day. Who knew it would be such hard work!
The strawberries are bare root. I've never worked with bare root plants before; I hope they will grow. Dear son has claimed three of the squares as "his". Hopefully he'll share his harvest.
I hope your week gets off to a great start!
