A Mindless Break

Sometimes, you just need a break from everything. This week, Michael's had a sale on Pom Pom yarn. I came home with a couple of balls, and after a couple of evenings in front of the TV, I have this.

It is about 8' long. I will sew the ends together and make an Infinity Scarf. Since the weather is finally starting to improve, I think it will become a present for next Christmas.

Meanwhile, I am trying to bring a little spring indoors.
They don't look like much yet, but in a week or so, they will be covered in blossoms. Every year about this time, I cut a couple of branches from my Forsythia bush and force them. I have this vase, a larger vase, and a juice glass full of twigs. You can already see a tiny touch of yellow on a few of the buds, so I don't think it will take long. Sadly, I don't think they will be ready for Easter.  Poor planning on my part (of course the drift in front of the bush was about 5' high until a day or so ago.)

Happy Spring!


  1. Kate, what a great idea to bring some twigs inside, they should do well, maybe not for the Easter days, but soon after, lovely colour and scarf pattern, so warm and cosy. Easter Greetings from Jean

  2. I hope you'll post photos of the blooms. Never heard of forcing forsythias. I hope it's easier to do than to say. :)
