Rainy Day Knitting!

Hello everyone,
hope your weekend is of to a good start!
It a bit cold and rainy in Kentucky today
so I figured sharing some 
warm and cozy knitting projects with you
 would be appropriate. 

Yes, I finally finished my cowl,
or  the supposed to be cowl, LoL,
I changed my mind at the end and
decided not to join the ends.
So the cowl became a scarf!
 And who knows, maybe I will change my mind again?!
 Knitted with Classic Elite Yarn "Firefly" in color "Rust".
 So glad it's done,
I been working on this, on and off,
more off, since last July.
I get sidetracked easily with new projects... 
 ... but for the last few weeks I promised myself
I would not start another knitting project unless the scarf was done!!! 
And I did... is my newest adventure...
...Baby Fish Cocoon!
A gift for friends expecting,
you guessed it right,
a baby girl!
You can find the pattern in the book
"Knitted Animal Nursery" by Fiona Goble.
The pattern is super easy to follow 
and for the yarn I chose 

Baby Bee - Sweet Delight Chunky in Pink-a-boo marbled
Yarn Bee - Alpine Authentic in Purple multicolored

both found at Hobby Lobby.

A little tip! If you do not want to purchase the book,
just visit your local library and see if they can get it for you!!!
Our Library Rocks,
of course I work there!!!
Sorry, tooting my own horn here!!! 

 Thank you so much for stopping by,
have a great weekend
a wonderful week!

Did someone say Chocolate Bunny!

Hello everyone,
hope you are enjoying
some nice weather this weekend!

We had quiet a stormy week, 
hail, high winds and even a tornado warning,
not my favorite kind of spring weather,
but everyone is OK and the sun is back out!
With all the sunshine and spring blooms everywere
I could not resist and take my camera outside
to snap the pictures for today's post.
Can you believe its almost Easter, I know,
ready or not, it's right around the corner!
I decided to go with a
"Chocolate Bunny"  
Easter card this year,
I figured you can't go wrong 
with chocolate, LoL!

 Butterfly was cut with Cricut cartridge "Everyday Pop-Up Cards". 
 Yummy bunny stamp is "Chocolate Bunny" by Stampin'Up!
 Eggs were cut with Cricut cartridge "Folk Art Festival"
and the background panel was embossed with
Cuttlebugs "Plum Blossoms" embossing folder.
 Did someone say chocolate bunny!
I hope you have a sweet Easter!

With all the spring blooms and blossoms I had to share
a few more pictures.
This is one of my favorite trees in our yard...
 ... this is a "Kwanzan Flowering Cherry" tree.
 Absolutely beautiful this time of year.
What is your favorite spring flower or tree?

Thanks so much for stopping by,
hope you have a wonderful week
and a blessed Easter!
