My Five are things that got made this week or made me happy.
The First is my Valentine's Pillow. The front is done in a Half-Double crochet with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn in this color:
The back I did in single crochet with a simple cream colored yarn. The heart is done in a variegated pink that I had left over from another project. It turned out pretty good considering I had no idea what I was doing.
My Second is the latest soup I've made. It is Corn Chowder with Chicken and Bacon. I made it yesterday and it was so easy, I'll definitely be making it again.
|I should have noted that this is not my chowder, I forgot to take a picture, but except for the green onions it looks exactly like mine.|
My Third is something Mac made. When cleaning up the yard where a tree had fallen during a storm he found an interesting piece of wood and decided to keep it and make something out of it.
My Fourth is one of his paintings that is more or less finished, to him they're never finished.
It's based on a photo we took in England at a Steam Fair.
My Fifth is my new pair of silk long johns. My old pair had mysteriously disappeared. We walk every morning before breakfast and I bundle up with jacket, gloves, scarf and earmuffs. So I stay pretty warm on the top, but not the bottom. I love jeans, but they don't keep you very warm, so I wear long johns in the winter or at least I did until mine went missing. But now I have a new pair and I'm very happy.
Hope you have a great weekend.
