Green Fluff

I am working on a new free pattern that I hope to finish and post some time next week. I felt like sharing a sneak peek. All I am going to say is that it is kid silk haze, which is a lovely, lovely yarn not only to work with but also to wear. Are you intrigued?

This past week was the Tulip Time Festival in Holland and my son marched in the parade on Thursday afternoon. The weather was pleasant and sunny, about 60 degrees, which is just great for marching. By the end of the route, he was pooped out, but agreed to pose for one picture. Unfortunately, since there are no tulips left, he is just standing in the crowd. Yes, that is a palette and a paint brush in his hand, the theme for their class is floral fantasy.

Another great thing the festival is known for is food. There are many booths with non healthy foods to choose from like deep fried Oreos, Twinkies, as well as elephant ears, fries, gyros and funnel cakes. It makes my arteries harden just thinking about it. Our family went down one evening and indulged and it was awesome. Sigh......
