Poetry Reading for St. Brigid's Day

I saw this over at Knitting at No. 9 then found that my friends the Knit Devil and The Dim Sum-mer have also participated. Sheesh, and here I did a poem for yesterday. Well, That certainly doesn't mean that I can't do another one today, right? Without further ado... here's one of my favorites.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village though;

He will not see me stopping here

To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake.

The only other sound's the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

(Robert Frost)

Project Spectrum Begins...with a poem

It's a blue day...

the sky

is leaden grey.

My words take flight

like birds

wings of white

against the dark

and dreary sky.

Hear them cry:




as grey

gives way

to blue and white

and sun so bright

the mood turns light

and it feels right

to say, good night,

good night,

good night.

Sunday was a great day for creativity--D5 hosted a stampin' workshop at her house. Here's my set of projects, plus a really cute bookmark that my sis-in-law made. Not only does it say Meow! but it has a picture of Simon. How cute is that?

Now this is something pretty cute. The quilt shop where I teach one night a week also does dolls. This lady is one of the display models, and the pattern is available.

She had to be featured here because her name is... Madge. Now, I must say she bears no resemblance to any person I might know by that name... just sayin'!!

Progress report on Trellis:

10 more rows and it will be time to do some shaping. Whee! I'm wondering if this can be considered an early start on Project Spectrum?

Hmmm... I'd better go back and read the rules again. D'oh!

Let's finish up with some gorgeous boy cat, okay? Hi-Hi was keeping Lady E I warm...that's the red bag under him. He very patiently let me take his picture--but isn't he a beautiful boy?

Okay, I know, I need more Carrot pics and fewer cats. It's just that this guy is much handier for photographing. And, he doesn't move as fast!
