Skateboard Love

Kailen and the love of his life.
My little skateboarding superstar.

Squirrely Update

This is their new home. I put a bike basket inside and they LOVE it. I made little hammocks out of fabric and they love to sleep there.

They are getting nice and fat. Their names are Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.

They do like to be pet on their own terms. Usually not when they have a peanut in their mouth!

They really are super cute.

All three are males so there will be no reproducing.

This is the side view. It even has a little hatch to open for food.

The neighbors even enjoy feeding them when they stop for a visit.

Zoo Trip

I took the kids to the zoo this week. It wasn't as hot as it could be with the temperature reaching the high 80's. West Palm Beach's Dreyer Zoo, is one of the best around.

This is a peacock doing his mating call.

Can you spot the hidden child?

The fountains are one of the main attractions. It's great on a hot day.

Even the older kids enjoy it.

Off to the French Market

Now, only if that were true. Ah, the French Market. I made my first French Market Bag and I even felted it

I love love love this bag. I am giving it to my mom for Mother's Day. I used two skeins of Malabrigo in worsted weight, and the colorway was Cuarzo. I also ordered some Vermillion. Very soft and the smell is wonderful. Reminds me of dying Easter eggs. This is one of my favorite yarns. I used Red Heart to test some embroidery on it. I will be sewing a flower garden on one side of the bag. Will post pictures. I found this new yarn store that is absolutely fabulous. Cathy, the owner, is soooo nice and helpful. The amount of colors she has is unbelievable. AWESOME SHOP
