It's a beautiful beautiful day at Willow's Cottage, this First Friday in February. I have Five Faves to share with you from my week. Susanne hosts Friday Fave Fives. Go HERE to join us!
1. I have a new-to-me desk! When my friend was in the process of making changes in her studio, she remembered that I have been looking for a desk for years. This one is exactly perfect for me. Low enough for me to sit at and use my computer. Four drawers. Roll down top. And best of all, it's TEAK and matches the rest of our Danish teak furniture! So she made me an offer. Let's trade!
2. The trade we made is perfect for both of us. I knit. She loves knitted stuff. So I have 'indentured' myself to her for xx number of knitted items over the next year. So far, I've made a man's watch cap type hat, a toddler's hat and a headband. Now I'm in the process of knitting a shawl from some handspun (by me) wool in all her favorite colors.
3. The best sign. Ever.
4. I finished the New Boy's sweater adjustments. If you care, you can read about how to lengthen a knitted sweater in this post I wrote earlier this week. The best part is that I finished it and it's ready to be mailed off to him this weekend. And I didn't just cut it up and throw it away and start over. I worked through the process and figured it out.
5. The-World's-Best-Neighbor borrowed something culinary from me last week and when she returned a NEW bottle of what she borrowed, she also brought me a lovely camellia blossom. Yes, the camellias are blooming their little hearts out here in Southern California this month.
That's it from Willow's Cottage! How was your week? I hope you've had a great week and TOOK NOTE of the blessings.
