On my end, after getting fed-up with cables & deadline knitting the other night, I punched some wool with a sharp needle for a bit…
This dish was part of SIL’s bridesmaid gift. It’s by Paloma’s Nest, and usually holds my small knit knacks.
That’s the end of my needle-felting love but I’m also throwing in a couple of Jamaican seashells & rose quartz for good measure. Since they’re both great for affairs of the heart.
Also on my end, I cracked open the Joy of Cooking & whipped up a batch of blueberry muffins this a.m.:

Of course, it’s still winter here but I decided to reach for the backyard shots anyway:
I don’t want to bury the pic of my new book in this post, so that’s coming soon!
