I am diligently working on my Easter swaps. One is ready and will also be sent off tomorrow and the other is still being worked on. I can't post any pictures til I hear that my swap partners have received their packages because it would spoil the surprise but I'm pleased to say that I used everything from my stash on hand to make everything. Yippee!
I've been on a roll this weekend, or so it seems. I also completed the first block of the Tisket-A-Tasket BOM in wool. I'll probably prepare the February block later today and work on it tonight. I enjoy working with wool on cotton and find it works up very quickly and is very forgiving.
My Christmas cactus is coming into bloom again for the third time since November. This is the second year in a row that it's doing this and I just love the flowers that it produces. The buds start on the side first where it faces the light so I give it a slight rotation every second or third day and it's fun to watch the buds form and then open.
Here is a little pillow that my friend Lucie made and gave to me for Valentine's Day. It measures about 4" x 4" and is made out of wool with different sizes of red buttons sewn on. It fits in with all my other little pillows that I keep as a gathering in my trencher.
