Socks and Flowers

Socks made using one of my favorite patterns, Crusoe, from out of yarn from one of my favorite people (and vendors!) Eve at Simply Divine Fiber Arts Studio.

Now that they are finished I am swatching to chose just the right sock pattern to make with my birthday present from daughter Nakia, a skein of STR yarn in the rainbow color named Fire On The Mountain! What fun ;)

During a rather stressful week recently, my precious daughter and grandson brought me a beautiful bouquet of roses - the most exquisite color! They dried nearly the same color, you can see them below in an antique bowl from my Grandma:

I also treated myself to a gift of blooming hyacinths to grace my kitchen windowsill. Their color and fragrance inspire me!
