I saw my first robin!!!!

On my walk today....there he/she was singing to me from a limb above my head!  I was thrilled as they are one of my favorite birds.
Today was very productive too!  I baked off my bread this morning after letting it rise overnight on the top of the frig.
 While the bread was baking I got to work on the bedroom.  I dusted the window frames and sills, finished dusting the rest of the baseboards and vacuumed next to the baseboards with that special tool.  I dusted the little shelf and the detached headboard and then vacuumed the entire room.  Now on to the hallway!  The cleaning extravaganza continues!  There are still some things that need doing in this bedroom but not right now.  The carpet needs to be replaced shampooed, the headboard needs to be sealed and painted again and re-installed and the whole room, ceiling too,  needs to be painted.  But right now I am just getting it ready to show for selling and decluttering for moving.

 I also finished the Feather and Fan dishcloth.  I just need to bind off and weave in the ends tonight while watching t.v.
I finished a book I was reading too so I am doing great on finishes this week!  I started watching a new podcast and I love it.  She is A Wooden Nest and she knits and botanically dyes yarn and gardens and she lives in the pacific northwest.  She's very soothing to listen to and I love her knitting projects.  Now, I want to dye yarn botanically.....of course I do!
Here are your "tidbits" for today...........
Wow!  Now there's some hearts for you and plenty of them!  Here's the link to the tutorial



A little red food coloring and you have Valentine's Day in the bag....they had me at "cream filled"!  Here's the recipe

here's a little humor............that will teach him!
  Happy Trails!!!

  2. Hahahaha! I wish I'd had that "tooth fairy" when I was little! We were lucky to get a nickel or dime back then. That filled cake looks delish, buuuuuuuut not on our no salt/no sugar/organic/borderline vegan diet. I love those cute little knitted hearts. Your dish clothe is very nice!! Your room looks like it's a nice size and with good sunshine coming in... very nice room! Blessings to you, Sam! ♥ (P.S. I have you on my blog list now!}

    1. Back at you with the blessings and I have you on my list too! I try to eat healthy but on a holiday all bets are off! LOL!

  3. You've been busy again. I love your bedroom, it looks so warm and cozy. Yummy bread too. MIne never ever looks that good. I haven't seen any robins yet, but we have had abnormally warm, in the 40's weather this week. So strange for February in Spokane. That was some tooth fairy gift. I sure never received or gave to our kids that much. It was usually a quarter or two!
    Blessings always my friend,
    Betsy

    1. Well, it got cold here! Really cold! The coldest so far. It was 16 this morning! Brrr! I don't think I ever got anything from the tooth fairy, maybe from my aunt and uncle but not my parents for sure.

  4. You have way more energy than me for cleaning and completing tasks. I'm a slug. Need to get back to organizing. My desire to do so seems to come in spurts but never lasts long. Take care.

  5. Your house is going to show very well, Sam, with all the work you've put into it. I love that chicken that sits atop that little corner shelf. :)

  6. Thank you, Becky! I really appreciate the encouragement. It helps to keep me going. I made that chicken several years back. I should make some for the grands for Easter. They are cute. It was a free pattern from Rowan yarn. Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. There now, you see, you can knit!!I love your dishcloth and grey is very 'in' at the mo!!I can't do Feather and Fan stitch and I have such trouble with that chevron stitch in crochet too. I just stick to the simple stuff! Your bedroom looks lovely. Is that an old door you have as a headboard? I might steal that idea! Your bed looks fine and dandy without it so maybe save yourself a job and do without? Good weekend to you.

  8. Actually the dishcloth is a taupe brown color but I don't have the greatest camera. You could do this feather and fan....if I can anyone can! Thank you, yes it is an old door and when my husband and I were married I painted it white and stenciled hearts on it. I should have just given it to him and his girlfriend now wife. But I kept it but I meant to paint over the hearts and flowers and I finally did but they were oil stencils and bled through so I need to seal it and redo the paint job. There is also a light fixture that I put where the doorknob was. I miss that light as it was perfect for reading in bed at night or handwork. Have a great weekend yourself and happy Valentine's Day!

  9. Happy Valentines Day Sam! You are moving right along! Seems like I am stuck in quick sand...not much progress here...at least none that shows! :)

  10. You really are giving that house a great clean and fresh look with all your hard work. I’m trying to think last time I cleaned our skirting boards (base boards)....at least 3 years ago I think...time to draft a Spring cleaning schedule.
