Knitter 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.This 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.Guilty 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.
