Let's go Hawks!

Russell - you might recognize him from my little photo on the right - was thrilled to receive a Stanley Cup Champions shirt from dear friend Pat following the team's win this year!! Pat allowed me to become a temporary Hawks fan when my own favorite Penguins' season came to an end! Pat kindly sent along an official little Stanley Cup Bear and this wonderful shirt which looks as though it was just made for Russell! Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks for a grand season and for winning the Cup!!

My son, Jason, is recovering well from shoulder surgery. I wish the pain he's felt wasn't necessary, but I've enjoyed having Jason around for a couple of weeks. I haven't had much time for sewing bears, but there's been the odd moment when I could pick up yarn and hook, so have enjoyed making lots of flowers. In case you love yarn, you will enjoy knowing that the Knitpicks website is having a big sale. Have a look at my order that arrived yesterday!

I wanted to take a "colorwheel" photo before opening the skeins for some colorful flowers! Just imagine the little bears and bunnies sitting upon the flowers! Knitpicks offers reasonably priced pure wool throughout the year and the sales come along that make ordering a joy! There's a wonderful color range too!

Here's one of my favorites so far - made with the "crocodile" stitch this time in red and green.

While on the deck photographing yarn delights, I was treated to wonderful butterflies and moths on our now huge butterfly bush which often looks alive with scores of wildlife enjoying it's flowers.

With all the rain we've had, our butterfly "bush" is now a "tree" reaching far above my head.
