A Week in Colorado
I've been spending the week in Colorado with the folks. While there I've been working on several projects. One that is completed is the little apple blossom study. Originally, I'd planned for the right side of the piece to be the top, but as I finished it, I realized I like it rotated better.
One of my favorite stores here is Shuttles, Spindles & Skeins, a wonderful store focused on the fiber arts. I purchased some lovely cashmere/silk yarn to knit a lightweight shawl in the Storks Nest pattern. The yarn is lovely and soft, a beautiful aqua color and makes for the perfect summer knitting project!
Along the side of my parent's new yard is an area that my Mom wants to turn into a flower garden. We've been sketching out ideas for the layout and thinking about what kinds of plants to use!
One morning, my daughter and I made a trip to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder where they were setting up tents for all the Memorial Day Weekend events, including the Morgul Bismark Road Race (Bicycles) and the Bolder Boulder Race (10k Marathon).
The tulips and pansies were in bloom in the planters along the Pearl Street Mall. So lovely!
An evening spent browsing an antique store with two of my kids resulted in finding a lovely assortment of vintage trims! Now to decide if I want to actually use them or if i should keep them as is and simply enjoy the vintage packaging and look of them!
