In my garden!

We have had some beautiful days here lately, this is the best time of the year in Houston.
Here is the banana plant that I got from my son last year, it has grown alot, they say that bamboo is the fastest growing plant, so I assume that the bananaplant is not far down the list.... I blogged the plant a year ago, have a look for yourself.

I love the moonflower with the big flowers blooming in the evening and they smell good too

Some seeds that I planted,

more flowers

I found Stella in the garden too.

On my knitting needles I am still working on my shawl, hopefully I will finish it this week end. Beside that I am working on an order I have on the cowboy quilt.

February Lady Sweater

It has been awhile since I blogged, as usual, very busy, I had a "Fallmarket" here at my house, and then I had visitors in for the Quilt Festival. I finished my FLS a couple of weeks ago and I am very pleased with it. It is knitted in Rowan Denim yarn, which is cotton. I don't like to knit with cotton, but living in a warm climate the jacket will be used more than if I made it in wool.

On my needles now I have a shawl. I knit with some wonderful yarn from Danish mohair goats.
