The little jacket I just finished for Sienna. Sienna is our nephew's daughter and they will be here from Korea for a visit at the end of the month. I can't wait to meet Sienna.

This is my lavender harvest so far. I am pleased with the amount I got this year. Can't you almost smell them ?
Just had a blast from the past....from the long long ago past. I love how the world wide web can connect us to so many people.
We went for a drive in the country today....gosh this is a beautiful part of the province...lush farmlands, green valleys and the lake. I picked up my djembe which was in the caring hands of Phil Shaw of Shaw Percussion. He tuned it very well I must say considering it was a 'bad' purchase. At least the price was low, I learned from my mistake of buying such an item on line...what was I thinking??? I met Phil and saw his beautiful drums, all hand made by himself and his son. I will be saving my loonies and buying a drum from him. My 'bad' purchase looks good and will fill a corner of the living room if nothing else. The sound isn't that bad but it isn't great either; don't know that I would join a drum circle using it.

What's the secret for lush lavendar growth...??? I've not had too much luck growing it.. What type of lavendar is it ?

It's English lavender...likes is right off the patio at the back so gets sun all day. I think it likes to be left alone once it's planted because that is the only thing I did differently with this plant. The scent is heavenly. I'm going to package up the dried flowers for my wool/yarn drawer.
