DSCN8475DSCN8476DSCN8473Knitter and Bad Cat approved baby bloomers!  I really love this pattern.  Knitted in Spud and Chloe’s striped merino – so soft and sweet!  Bad Cat (Maude) thinks that the goose down quilt is hers, thus the irritated expression.  She wanted to nap and those bloomers would have been a nice addition to her already comfy bed.DSCN8479This is a block that I saw over on Wombat Quilt’s blog.  It may be the center of a new medallion styled piece that is floating around in my head.  This is called Pinwheel Snowball and she offers the free pattern on her latest blog entry.  I reduced it down to 65% and liked the result a lot.DSCN8481Guilty quilty pleasures … sometimes you just have to have a small treat!

I’ve decided not to write about the bees on a regular basis as I am such a novice when it comes to the keeping.  I will continue to encourage everyone to do whatever they can to assist our important bees.  A friend who does keep bees found himself in the ER recently with some serious reactions, which came as a surprise.  Wear your appropriate gear when handling your bees!  And please, refrain from mowing down the early dandelions as they provide necessary nourishment for hungry bees.
