Flowers, knitting and nesting

When I've finished a few gardening chores-- spreading compost, gathering rhubarb, weeding-- I retreat to the cool house and set myself up in my corner of the living room.

And a fresh bouquet to cheer me.

With a snack of ice tea and a muffin, I set myself up with an ice pack on my hip and make sure I have all my projects nearby.

Just ike with my fiber art, I always have a few knitting projects on the go.

Spiral Stairway shawl


Baby afghan

I'd really like to get to a sewing project, but I must rest the hip. It's good to have lots of interests to pass the time.

Oh good for you finding yourself a corner and making yourself comfy!! A very good idea indeed and your flowers from he garden are lovely bright - I'm assuming they are lilies - do they have a scent?

I love your spiral stairway shawl, Holly, am going to look it up on Ravelry right now. I hope you feel better, the gorgeous bouquet will help!
