Pot Holder and Hot Pad Swap

I am in my first ever swap and am SO excited! My family is a bit tired of me constantly asking their opinions on color and design. I have decided on the pattern Kaleidoscope Hot Pads by Cylinda Mathews which I found on Ravelry. I am a bit nervous on how it will be received. For a change, I am actually using traditional colors rather than the bright and unusual. I have finished my first one and am happy with it. It is a caramel and chocolate with a baby blue back. Next in line, grey and cream with a red backing. Have a Fabulous Day!

Sing a Song of Robins

I awoke this morning to the joyful chatter of Robins outside my window. I have been more aware of the songs that fill the air lately. I took the kids on a silent walk to the park to write poetry a couple of weeks ago. The goal was to listen for sounds of life and then write about them. I heard many different songs that birds sing. From the trees as we passed to quieter, more distant calls. I am positive that they have always been here, but why am I more cognizant recently of these joyous creatures?

My First Blog

It is very daunting to start blogging. Your first post says so much. Do you just type as if you have always been here? Do you introduce yourself and tell about your past? Should I use this forum to only discuss the things I am working on? I think all of the above. What drew me to start my own blog is that there are no rules.

Enjoy your day!
