My sewing room has been pretty quiet this last week.  Between, a funeral for the amazing dad of an old friend, and coming home to a house full of sick kiddos, there is not a whole lot of creativity happening here in “blooming poppies” land.

I did manage to pull a new stack of solids for a sudden quilt vision I had.  I’m kind of going out on a limb with these, but the final creation looks good in my head anyway!!  We’ll see….

Before all the sicky germs descended upon our home,  I managed to finish the simplest cowl in the world for my oldest daughter, Miss K.

I think I cast on about 9o or so stitches and then knit until I felt done.

It doesn’t get much simpler than that, right? It’s a great way to use up those half skeins of yarn I end up with so often.

I’m hoping for a house full of well and happy kiddos soon, so mamma can get to work again.
