Tuesday Tea

Sea Cottage recently started Tuesday tea. That's were you post a little something about your day or week and have a little tea.

So something about today. I have posted 2 times in one day. Plus I am still in my nightgown. That's sad I know.

This is a little tea pot I have had for a while. Not real fancy but I love the colors.

So now I am going to enjoy some of that delicous banana bread and some hot tea.
Have a Great Day

Banana's and Granny

The House Smells Wonderful. Don't ya just love the smell of fresh baked bread?

I used good ole Betty Crocker's Banana Bread recipe. Plus I added some Chocolate Chips ( 1/2 Bag) and some raisins.
I just love a slice for breakfast. Would you like one???? Plus a cuppa tea???
Check out my granny square blanket i started 1 week ago. I am in love with it. So many colors. I am using alot of my left over yarns. Like Vanna Choice, Lion Brands yarn, Simply Soft, some wool, Cotton ( of Course) . I even threw in some mohair type yarn. Just a great mixture.

This is my older Violet. I have had this one for about 4 years. I really like the varigation in the flowers.

Have A Great Day

Knitter's Fantasy 2010

Yes I went to Knitter's Fantasy last Saturday. I stayed maybe 1 hour got sick and had to leave. But boy did I buy yarn. There is a company called Autumn House Farms they have a silk rayon blend that is to die for. $14.00 a skein. but ohhhhh i love it.
Check this one out. There is 12 different yarns . WOW!!!
Then I bought this little llama loofah that smells Divine.

Check out there site if ya have time. I would love to visit there farm someday. http://autumnhousefarms.com/ . This the yarn . So nice I already started knitting there shawl pattern that i got last year.

This one only has 2 different yarns. but very pretty i think. There are a few more yarns but well i am saving them for later.
I wish I could have stayed longer, but to be honest I ran out of money. So easy to do when you just love yarn. I had to feel every skein that I liked.
Then they had the http://bagsmith.com/ lady's there. I don't know why but this link is not working I know they also have a BagSmith you tube channel . Plus they are on http://ravelry.com. They are so friendly.It's all about the Big Stitch. Very Cool looking. I would love to try and do something with these.
Gonna Go for now
Have A Great Day!

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. My first Daffodil. They really are very pretty flowers.

My mother in law bought me 3 new plants. I REALLY have a thing for VIOLETS. Plus she bought me a purple passion plant. I have the best mother-in-law.

Spring has arrived. The buds on trees and bushes are everywhere. I can't wait to start hearing the spring peepers around our little creek.
Have a Very Blessed Easter.
