Whew, I disappeared there for a little bit! I had a great Easter, celebrating with my family after a glorious morning service with full organ. (Bonus: The postlude was Widor's Tocatta, which was used as the recessional music at our wedding. I LOVE this piece of music...it sounds like all the angels in heaven singing!!)
I have no good excuse for disappearing this past week other than Spring. Now, I LOVE Spring, but it does bring some allergies which throw me off my game. Plus March Madness always exhausts me. I guess I just needed a little break.
Speaking of March Madness, here is the last project the Sparkly Compote of Decree gave me:
I've also managed a couple squares on Tocatta I:
This weekend, we had THE most gorgeous weather...bright sunshine and a high of 70 (F).
The cherry trees were in full bloom; they are just starting to drop their petals like a magic warm snow shower whenever a nice breeze hits them.
We spent part of Sunday at the Botanical Gardens, where there were even MORE tulips. I couldn't believe it!
I would like to tell you that Sunday, we went down to Centennial Olympic Park and enjoyed the carnival rides and free concerts (Sting! Dave Matthews Band! STING!!!) that were there on account of the Final Four, but we couldn't muster up the energy. We did get a few things done around the house, which was really nice.
And also this:
HOLY COW SEAMING A SWEATER IS SUCH A PAIN IN THE NECK I WILL PROBABLY NEVER KNIT ANOTHER SWEATER GAAAAAHHHHHH!!
I aim to have it done so I can wear it to Stitches South next Friday. Maybe I can finger it while I try not to buy all the yarn in the place.
