COLORS.....

It is still cold and grey here and we needed some colors. It is not a good time to visit Houston. Maybe it will be snowing tonight..

A good way to add colors in the day is to dye  some yarn, and the little ones have fun with running and crawling after me when I am lining the yarn up between two chairs, one in the kitchen and one in the dining room.
We had a little glimpse of the sun while the yarn hang out to dry.
Then the fun starts to rewind all the yarn....
The three skeins look very nice in the end

Our little princess has been sick, we are glad she is feeling better now. Here she is this morning in a knitted dress that her big sister had when she was 1 year. I found it in the attic when we were home last summer, but unfortunately it has some wholes in it. I don't have the pattern because I don't think it was me that knitted it. I hope to get hold of the pattern to make a new one, it is such a pretty dress.

On our table we have a beautiful runner, made by a dear friend of us. It is a "Bareroots" design, and I have a few of their designs
look at the tiny appliqued leaves
Another friend has given me one stocking each Christmas, also from a  "Bareroots" pattern
I have made the bag, sewing machine cover and the bag, I love their designs.
