Yarn along...harvesting.

I'm working on several projects right now...sewing a long bench cushion for a friend, always working on aprons, and instead of crocheting, I've been balling up some yarn, getting it ready to use! Ginny's yarn along is especially sweet this week...she's reading the Bible.I hope to finish that green piece into a sweet capelet like this one below from Lands' End Canvas, it's on sale for $19.99 right now, but they only have the small size left:Last night I finished reading Anthem a novella by Ayn Rand. It was excellent because it points out that individuality and freedom are essential to joy in life...one cannot live under authority or a government that is extremely controlling. I hope to get her book Atlas Shrugged to read next.
A Carolina wren family is living outside our backdoor. I had a basket in one of the shelves and noticed that there was a lot of brown stuff in it...and birds back and forth...sure enough, 3 little chicks have hatched. The mother and father both seem very careful, I'm sure she wasn't happy with me having a look. I made sure not to touch anything...

This was yesterday's harvest...
I know you're wondering what's in the blue sand pail...

What sweet little wrens. I love them and used to have one that would visit at our old house. Pretty green yarn!

You asked how old Anna is. She is 14. And she did get her brown belt. In tkd it is brown, then red and then black and I believe there are advanced belts in between each color.

Because we do tkd with our homeschool co-op (our instructor doesn't charge us for the actual teaching) advancing is a little slower going because we don't meet as often as a school would. But the kids who participate are very close and are very supportive of each other which has been cool to watch.

Congratulations to Olivia on learning to ride her bike!

SO glad to hear your comments on Ayn Rand. I've been wanting to tackle 'Atlas Shrugged' but haven't. Maybe I should start with a different one like the one you mentioned. Happy yarning!

What a beautiful capelet! Those are my favorite. Might have to check out Land's End. :) Thanks for the book recommendation as well! Hope you are all doing great! xoxo
