WOW! That is coming along quickly! And very nice!


Hello Bron!
What about one central cable for the back who splits up in a V? (Sorry, just had to add my sauce to it...;-))
And I offer my help for some test knitting (this will assure me one finished item at least!)
Have a good inspirational day


I love the honeysuckle, but I can see how it might be overwhelming though. I love the cables! I can't wait to learn those.


I admire your talent. I couldn't design my way out of a paper bag.
The yard looks great even with the honeysuckle invasion.
Oh, I saw the craft room progress yesterday. I think the wall of bookcases sounds great! That's my dream, too, if I ever have a craft room.


Green apple is so pretty. I can already tell this will be a winner, assuming you don't run out of yarn. Do the honeysuckles attract bee's? Your yard is really pretty (though for someone with allergies, your yard could be a freaking nightmare, ha ha.)


I think the honeysuckle is perfect right at the moment,and wouldn't touch it. But I can see it will need controlling at some stage. ;o) It looks devine and softens the edges of the pergola beautifully - a scented leafy bower to escape to and sit beneath. :o) We have a 'sit and bark' like that too. No, not perfect, but better an escape artist Jack Russell be safe while we are away from the house than out and onto the road!! :o)


What I lovely back yard. I've set the picture as my desktop image. If I can't have a pretty yard, I will at least enjoy yours. :-)


Thanks, Adrienne! I really hope I like it once I have it completed. :)

Daniela - Great minds think alike - that's exactly what I'm going to do. And thanks for being a test knitter - I'm hoping to have the pattern written up very soon. :)

Linda - I can't wait until everything is organized & sorted. It's driving me a bit nuts now - I can't find anything!

Wendy - Shhhhh! I'm always worried about running out of yarn when I use something from Elann. But this time I should be OK, as long as I don't do sleeves!

Yes - the honeysuckle attracts TONS of bees. Which is good, because bees are in trouble these days, but it's bad for me 'cause I hate anything that stings!

Terri - I KNEW you'd say it was perfect. ;) But cutting it back IS far down on my list of things to do this summer so it just might made it until next year. ;)

Sara - What a nice thing to do & say! I'm just glad the old homeowners did such a wonderful job with everything. I don't think I could ever be as creative as she was with plants. :)


Cool sweater!
About the 'dog run' I would suggest pulling out the fence and honeysuckle, or at least taming the honeysuckle, but a wood floor? Looks like a potential garden sitting spot to me? :)

Bear Knits

Green Apples is looking good. I can't wait to see it completed.

I love the pics of your garden. It looks like a perfect hideaway.


Helen - It's definitely something to think about - that floor needs to be used for something! Thanks for chiming in. :)

Thanks, Bear - it really is quite a retreat. We just need to get used to going out & enjoying it.
