Things have been a bit crazy and I have to admit I have mostly been posting on painting in trees. Today I stumbled back on this blog, and felt sad that I had let such an old friend fade away. So I will try to come back a bit more often.
I have been knitting and I even got to go to Rhinebeck, hence the furry friend in the picture. I wanted to take her home, but I don't think my land lord would be ok even if I told her it was just like a big cat.
I have plans to knit Vivian by Ysolda, right now I'm yarn hunting and am honing in on Cascade Eco Plus. It would be my first sweater.

It rained so hard yesterday, and the sun barely came out, but it was one of those beautiful tea drinking days. Walking around the garden I saw a ton of humming birds hovering around flowers. I mostly worked on my cabbage painting. Its coming along and the prints of some of my other paintings will be done soon.

Ok so these paintings have to come with an explanation. First of all I've always loved seeing cabbage grow, its always cheered me up and fascinated me. Come on, those are some of the prettiest leaf bundles around. Plus I think the charm of the cabbage patch kid logo has never really worn off.
In any case I did the smaller painting (the one below) on a whim and now I think I might do a series of them. The larger one (above) is still in progress but I'm very excited about it. The finished painting is likely to show up at my other blog.
