Last week's little chill was evidently just a precursor to cooler weather for us this week. Early morning temps here this morning were in the low 40s and even colder in the mountains. I sneaked and turned the heat on...TVA beware! Oh yes, those heating bills are costing us a fortune these days. These blackberry blossoms will become tasty berries in just a few months. Don Juan..a charmer of a rose. I bought this eighteenth century styled bird bottle at the pottery factory near Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia about ten years ago and hung it on the deck facing the morning sun, but in all that time I've never had a bird nest in it. Sigh.The crochet shawl (Bernat Handicrafter pattern Style No. 2343-220) is coming along, albeit slowly. I've made mistakes and had to rip back to correct them. This picture is current this morning, but I just found a mistake eight rows back, so I'll be ripping back again over a skein of yarn to correct it. Crocheting is faster than knitting, but correcting mistakes is deadly to progress since you have to ravel all the way back to where the mistake is to fix it. (I hope to be perfect and not make any mistakes someday...chuckles.)Lettuce just be glad there's forgiveness for our mistakes.
Have a great week, Y'all!
