Dee, that flower was sacrificed for you...it lost half its petals and was nearly ingested :)
A little while ago, I told Deanna that I was knitting her something for her birthday. I saw this yarn...
...and it spoke to me. A beautiful, silky grey/blue was just perfect for the project I had in mind.
Uhhhh, yeah. It's not done yet. And I'm not disclosing what it is because that would ruin the surprise! I will confess, I kept pushing it aside in favour of finishing other projects because I knew it would be a little while before she would be back in the country to receive her gift. Forgive me, Dee! :)
"Hey Anne, why'd ya take a picture of your breakfast?" You might be wondering. Well, I decided to have a very French breakfast this morning in honour of the Birthday Girl. After I collected everything, I realized that I had made 3/5ths of my breakfast myself. Also very French! I made the strawberry jam (after picking those berries while 8 months pregnant), the yogurt (from 3% milk; because French women don't believe in non-fat...haha) and the bread. I started making yogurt a few years ago when the accumulation of plastic containers started to get to me. Not just in my house, but also in the recycling bin. Recycling is great - but it uses up a lot of energy! I like to put more emphasis on the first 'R' (reduce...in case you've forgotten!) whenever possible.
Off to the post office - we've got Valentine's to mail :)
