A Favoured Sunflower



If you look close, you can see the most happy and delightful smiley face in this beautiful handmade sunflower. My friend, Michelle, created this little gem and has been wearing it on her apron at Rose Path. I asked if she would be willing to sell it... without even batting an eye, this generous soul unpins it from her apron and says, "It is yours. Pay it forward." Incredible. THAT's what I love about hanging out around that place! Good, good souls. She is good for my soul.


Simple pleasures... the feel of soft yarn... the sight of beautiful colors...


A basket of possibility!!  Inca by Katia.  Love it!


This is what I'm working on right now.  Another sweater.  This one for me, I think. 




This is a felted tweed by Rowan.  There are flecks of a wonderful blue interspersed throughout.  After a false start on Amanda's Lily Cardigan, it is now becoming a Peasy.  =)

Such a beautiful yarn!!! Anxious to see what it will be when it grows up. And the sunflower....wow!! That is so cute. Wish I had a yarn store like that. I know I would be trying so much more.

You are incredibly talented. My mom-in-law tried to teach me to knit once...she said anyone could do it. In the end, she suggested I go back to doing...well...whatever it is I do:)

What a sweet gesture for her to give you the flower. It's amazing how little gifts like that really lift your spirit! Kind of like when you made Ryan that sweet blue sweater! :-)
