I've been looking forward to this weekend for months! Last fall, at my knitting group, some of the ladies were talking about learning to dye at a class. I suggested we all get together some day in the spring, and dye at my place! So, tomorrow is the day! I think there will be about 10 of us (give or take a few), and we're going to set up out in my back yard, and have a dyeing day! I am so excited to get to spend an entire day dyeing, chatting, and hanging out with some knitting friends! It is going to be a blast! I haven't dyed in a group since the class I took a few years back. Some of the ladies haven't dyed before, and some have, which will be a fun combination. Can't wait to see what everyone does with their colors/yarn!

I can't wait to spend the day outside, dyeing, playing with color, drinking some wine, and just chilling. Is it tomorrow yet?!

I try not to crosspost too often, but I am short on time, and had to post some great pics I took this weekend!! Here you go!

Some knitting content to come!

This weekend, we spent a lot of time outside! The weather was lovely, warm, breezy, and sunny. And, our beautiful cherry tree was in bloom- each day getting a few more blossoms to pop out. So I took advantage of the situation, and took TONS of pictures of it. I got to play with my new camera a LOT, and got some amazing pics. Some I plan to blow up and put in our bathroom as art, and maybe put a few of them in Celia's room too.

We also took some time to work on our gardens. We bought the wood for the raised beds, and soil, and started working on them. Nathan also tilled all of the soil. The area where the raised bed is, was all grass before we got our hands on it this weekend. There is also another one to the left of the brick-bordered garden. The brick one is what we had last year, so we're really increasing our garden space. We also loaded them with soil, and planted some peas. The others will wait, as it's still too cool here at night to plant the tomatoes or other goodies. However I did make two window boxes for my kitchen window- one with lettuce, and the other with herbs I started.

Then a few great shots I got of the kids:

Can you tell how much I LOVE my new camera?!
