In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

I thought you might want to see the ripple blanket progress...
I'm getting very close to finishing it. I have a few more colors (skeins) to go. I get about five rows out of a skein.
The other day I thought I had enough pink for one more row. I got this far to the end, and ran out! I had to rip out the entire row. Such is the life of a person making an oversized ripple for a queen size bed, which she is pretty sure she will never do again!
Can't wait to finish it. If I have enough yarn left, I'm going to make some pillow cases.
I told someone yesterday, when they asked how I manage to get through such a large project, I tell them I look at it as a long term project and TRY, but don't always succeed, to do one row a day. If I do more then it's a bonus. I think this has been a year in the making so far....
I also said, I do little quick finish-fun projects along the way.
I'm 59. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 23 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. In 2016 we moved to the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
