This is a picture of my garden. It has veggies and flowers in it. I love this time of year (except for allergy season). I have in my garden Habenero, chiltepins, jalepenos, mint, garlic, basil, beefy tomatos and romas, cilantro, and cucumbers. My flowers are Hibiscus, geraniums, pointsetta, blue sachet, rose bush, honeysuckle,daffodils, red autumn sage, and etc. I am trying to cover all the ground so I won't see nothing but flowers. My husband and I like to use the firepit, take our little tv out there and drink a glass of wine or coffee in the evenings. I like to sit out there in the day and work on the laptop. Everyone should have a place like this in their life to sit and relax.

I made this blanket for a friend of mine that she is going with a jungle theme for her Baby boy's room. I knitted this using the pattern in the back of the Knit Two book I just finished. This was the second book of The Friday Night Knitting Club. It was Georgia Walkers blanket pattern. The yarn is Red Heart and it's called Woodsy. I tried many patterns first but with the colors it just wasn't looking baby enough. So I went to Joann's (one of my favorite stores) and they had this cute Lion patch on sale.I sewed it on with needle and thread matching the outline color of thread. I pinned it carefully first so i wouldn't move or tug on my stitches. I really like the way it turned out now. I plan to buy one of those stuffed Monkeys that wrap around stuff with velcro hand to hug the blanket as I present it to her.
