Warning! Super long post with lots and lots o' pictures!!! - Just trying to catch up on the past few days with no new posts.
I finally got my package from my swap partner (super late for a March swap, huh?) Ropetrix on Ravelry.com sent me some AWESOME things from Germany!
Man, DO I LOVE RITTER SPORT! <3 But besides German chocolate, here's my favorite part!
A turtle dove! Haha, get it? The theme was "hybrid animals". I sent her a polar bear you might remember me posting a while back.. I added wings, though, to fit the hybrid theme.
A very small ammount of you readers may know that I own quails! I thought I'd spend some time to actually share what our backyard is looking like right now...
Aren't my little "pea peas" so cute? :] I love calling them that! hehe~ As for these strawberries, my were they delicious!
So, the strawberries are located here...
We're running out of space under the lemon tree. The gardeners were giving suggestions, and what it boils down to, is that this beautiful little area is going to be cleared out soon! At least I'll keep my strawberries put... All the other plants (tomatoes, onions, lettuce, fennel, yams, chard, etc) will probably be transplanted to our other garden in Milagro Alegro.
Back to my love of yarn!
Look at what I've been collecting over the past 2 weeks. . .
I'm thinking of making a vest with a turtleneck collar. . . Here, it's better to show my drawings I had in mind:
I have nowhere NEAR the ammount of yarn for my original itent... so I think I'm going to go for something more like the idea next to it on the left. I'm so stoked!
And so... I should run off and do these ideas before I start posting more and more and more... and more...
