Our Start to the Week

Our beautiful Buff Orpingtons were sunning themselves this morning. It was -1C, pretty cold, even though the sun was shining, it was freezing out there.

I love to sit and crochet by this fireplace in the mornings, I have found an old wip, a knitted blanket that needs a crochet border. It’s amazing how you put knitting down for months (ahem) years and then, one day you see it lying over there on a shelf, out of the way and you just pick it up and finish it off.

Erin with her favourite chicken, Willa. Willa has become so tame, if Erin sits on the grass, she will rush over and sit on her lap, too precious. Erin is wearing her knitted ear warmer, pattern to follow soon:)

A winter morning sky…

Calendula flowers growing in the veggie garden, hopefully attracting all sorts of insects.

Our potatoes are growing so beautifully next to this flowering Rosemary plant.

I had fun knitting up this little kitty today. If you like I can share the pattern here with you, Meow! 🙂

How has your Monday been so far? 
Do have a lovely week.

    what a lovely start to your week. Willa is very cute! I love seeing the chickens sunning themselves. My daughter is chicken-sitting for a month while our neighbors are away and having the best time! Someday I hope to have our own chickens. Your little kitty is too cute!

    oh what a lovely post, here in this space I allways realize that there is winter now on the other side of the earth!I love your little kitty, but first thought it could even be a sweet owl (apart from the long tail);)

    Your flowers look lovely, the cold weather doesn’t seem to be bothering them. I would love to make up one of your little kitty’s! Is it using the magic loop technique? I only discovered this the other day and it’s great! up until now i have been using dpn’s but I’m finding the magic loop much easier!

    I always look forward to your posts – they never fail to put a smile on my face and brighten the day. Thank you so much!

    I love the little kitty and would enjoy knitting a few if you would share the pattern. They would make cute gifts for my cat loving friends (including myself).

    Have a great day and stay warm and enjoy your beautiful fire!!

    Beautiful post! Three of our chicks this year are Buff Orpingtons, wonderful to see some full grown. Wish I had chosen Barred Rock over the Plymouths, but there is always next spring for me. I would appreciate it if you chose to share your kitty pattern, very simple and lovely!

  22. Lynn Bowditch June 27, 2012 at 1:24 am #

    Please share the kitty pattern! I know a 13-month-old girl who lives with three kitties – this would make a wonderful fourth!

    How in the world are those flowers still intact if it’s freezing? At thirty two degrees F, all flowers would be dead by morning here – brown and frozen and dead. But of course, they’re still lovely in your garden! I loved all the pictures!
