Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!  Hope you have a good one, however you will spend it and with whoever.  If you spend it by yourself, with a loved one or loved ones, please enjoy the day!

(The big budgie is Lemmy and the little gal is Betty, the actual picture was taken on John and my anniversary.  Also the painting is in the background is one of my most prized possessions, a painting that John did.  His work is amazing.)

Our plan here is to eat lovely food, walk the dogs, and watch a good movie or two, sounds like everyday here actually.

New Prints in the Ellie and Ada Etsy Shop

I just listed these prints today in my Etsy Shop.  Hoping to get more of my prints up soon in the Etsyshop.  I have many more prints on my Society6 Page.  

It is raining and not in a very nice way.  There might be a storm on the way.  The fire is on.  The dogs and John are asleep.  I have a glass of wine poured.  I am going to watch absolute rubbish on Netflix, knit and relish it all!

Cardigan and Coffee Date

Didn't finish the button band on the cardigan.  I will tomorrow.  I will commit to buttons and button placement then yarnover stitches and whatnot (buttonhole making talk).  I like to do work on harder tasks earlier in the morning after breakfast (and of course, coffee!) because that is actually when my brain works the best.  Since all mornings are not created equal, this morning could be branded as a bit of an underachiever.

I am putting all my prints on mugs and other products.  It is so much fun to see my prints on mugs and totebags.  Wish my tomorrow morning's coffee could be served in the above mug.  Just putting it out there, John.

Just got informed that Society6 selected this print Keiko to be in the Society6 shop.  Delighted, so I am.

Going to Netflix it up now and finish a cardigan!  Can't wait for it to be finished, so I can dedicate more time to the new cardigan that I started.  Also want to get the last set of increases done on the new cardigan, so I can go to the Stitch and Bitch in the library tomorrow.  Haven't gone since December.

Off The Needles - Socks

Off the Needles!  I just finished these.  It's as dull as dish water outside.  It's a bit gloomy and grey.  I like how these are bright and cheery.  Reminds me of Easter colours.  Makes me want to eat jelly beans.

The weather is pretty dismal.  I was supposed to watch a movie with John but he is taking an afternoon nap.  It's just one of those days.  I'd love to drink a litre of coffee but it'd do me no good.

My First Plant in the House!

This is my first plant in the house.  My brother bought it for me and then gave me another.  I will photograph that beauty another day.  It was one of my New Year's Resolutions - get some plants for the house.

I'd like to learn more about plants and growing lovely stuff to eat.

Anyway, two new plants for our house are a great start!  Thank you, Brian!  We shall be in touch about repotting this baby.
