Not much going on knitting-wise around here lately…

Not much going on knitting-wise around here lately. I’ve worked a little on the Chickami, although not enough to justify a picture. The next Mystery Stole clue comes out today, so I may work on starting that clue tonight.

I DID do a little garden craftyness this morning. I made this Record Flower.

All you do is melt a 45 record over a bowl at 200 degrees F for about 5 minutes, then shape if necessary, paint a stick green, hot glue them together and add a leaf. Really easy, and I think it’s super cute! For the leaf, I cut a leaf shape out of an old Cool Whip lid and then hot glued it on.

Here are some more garden pictures:
My peony
We got 3 blooms this year! We should have tons more next year. The previous owner’s stunted the plants by dividing them and disturbing the roots really badly.

I also made up some Basil vinegar to steep yesterday, and froze a ton of chives. Jason loves cottage cheese and chives.
