Where I knit

This morning was the perfect morning to take my coffee and knitting outside.  We have a wonderful south-facing porch, and in the last week I've mangaged to fill most of my containers with flowers.  To top it off, we have a Korean Spice Vibernum next to the porch on the west side were the prevailing breezes blow, and it smells heavenly :-)

We often have a bold little visitor, who likes to bury his peanuts in my flowers, much to my displeasure.  Even though I chase him with a squirt bottle when I see him, he still comes back.

I just finished making a wee fairy for my sister's birthday:

Right now she (the fairy, not my sister!) is living in my fairy garden, but soon, very soon, she will have one of her own.

Next knitting project is Chrystal, a Mary Jane's Tearoom pattern.  I've loved these dolls for a long time, and this pattern is worked in the round.  So far, one leg is finished.

I hope you fill your day with what you love to do!

  1. Lovely to see you and wish I could come over and join you. I know your sister will love her fairy garden gift. First of the pretty spring flowers I see, and that little guy may be annoying, but he sure is cute.

    1. I can imagine the two of us sitting on the porch, with our knitting or crochet, and talking our heads off :-)

      Warmly,

  4. What a lovely place to knit. :) Your little squirrel friend appears to be asking what treats you might have for him, too. Your projects are always so wonderful. Your sister is very lucky to have that pretty little doll coming her way.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Lois, and for your good words :-) Yes, he is pretty brazen and hoping for peanuts, which he then tries to bury in my flower pots!!

      Warmly,

  5. Oh a small squirrel ! How it is cute! I live in the South of France, and in my garden, in summer, there are no squirrels, but lizards... my cat loves to catch them ... :-(

  6. What a lovely spot you have! I love your bold visitor; maybe next year you can set up a special squirrel flower pot just for him so he can bury his nuts and not annoy you. We have chipmunks and squirrels at our cottage, and if we forget to fill the feeders, the squirrels "yell" at us. The chipmunks climb all over us and check our pockets for treats, lol. So cute!
