On Monday I had the day to myself & I walked downhill to Sutter St & hung out in the ArtFibers store for quite a while. I bought some beautiful yarn and got lots of inspiration. They let you knit or crochet with the yarn to try it out & will give you a swatch of it, which is so nice! Making a decision was hard but I ended up with the Majolica #5. It's a blend of 70% Merino wool & 30% silk and it feels like butta! I had my crochet hooks with me because I am working on my 3rd sweater made with this Chevron Pattern. I actually made one in a day on the way to San Simeon last month.
this scarf with the new yarn. An easy 1 Row pattern. They had a scarf in the store made with this pattern and had added some large pendant type beads to the ends of the rows. It was pretty!
HERE you'll find some nice patterns & inspiration.

My strange squash! I grew them with my purple thumb & they taste good.
My strange self-watering planter/greenhouse for sprouting made from 2 diet coke bottles.
One for the inverted top & bottom, another for the lid. I am sprouting nasturtiums & cosmos.
I love nasturtiums and love to put them in salads. They have a peppery taste & you know how
much I love pepper!
Strange I still can't upload pictures directly to this blog.
I had to upload these photos to twitter & embed them into the html to get them to upload.
I took these with my phone which is why they are little blurry. If anyone else is having a problem
uploading photos this works!
Have a Wonderful Week!
As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.

John 15:10 ...'If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.'
I wanted to post a beautiful painting of Christ by Raymond Doward , a fellow Etsy Seller, along with this scripture but for some reason Blogger shuts off when I try to upload a photo. You can check out his beautiful painting here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/150917711 I love his painting. The stern yet kind & loving expression.
I am having this problem with Yahoo email as well. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone know how to fix it?
I have been painting this week and while under the weather I have become a Pinterest Addict! You can check out my boards & favorite picks here: http://pinterest.com/folkartjane/boards/ I especially love my board called "Crafty Cravings" which is full of inspiration and fun projects!
