almost back to ???

One more square left on the giant blankie. It's supposed to have a border, but that's just not going to happen. It's big enough without it. Pics when it's done. I promise.

After that, it'll be back to knitting for me. I'm going to work on a dragonfly cowl that I already have the yarn for. Just need the pattern.

In other rained this week, so I was able to grout a couple of things. I really love how they turned out.

They just need to cure for a bit and then have a spray or two of sealer and it's out to the garden.

Next up......frog on a rock.

a qucik fly by

Still knitting some Christmas presents this week, a hat, a cowl and a golf club cover. No pics, but they're ready to go. When I finished these, I was back on the blankie. It's getting there, but it's in the slog part of the blanket. (where it feels like it'll NEVER get done) I'll keep plugging away at it.

I also did some bowling ball mosaic this week, since it was raining.......this little gem is going to be a bubbler fountain for the hummingbirds. We'll put a solar pump on it and set it in a basin (still looking for the right one). I think it's going to turn out pretty cool. We'll see if it holds up with the water.

I'm planning on working on it some more today.....supposed to rain again......
Also, I'm taking a class at madrona this year. Haven't for a while, but I thought it would be fun. It's all about color theory for knitters. I can see a bunch of applications here for gardening and mosaics as well, so I though it would be good. I'll let you know.
