Enjoying the summer flowers and knitting...

This little pitcher is filled with zinnias that I planted from seed that Gretchen at Bird House Cottage shared with me.  I call them "cut and come" because the more you cut them, the more blooms you will have.  The butterflies really do enjoy them too.

I hope you can see the butterfly.  They love this butterfly bush as much as they do the zinnia.
This is a knitted blanket and a couple of receiving blankets with crochet edge that I made for a couples first baby.

I knitted this little cap-sleeve sweaters for a couple of special little girls.

This set and bib was done for our daughter-in-law's brother and his wife.  They are expecting their first baby, a girl, and wanted the set done in this pale lavender.  There is more knitting to do but I am not able to get out right now.  I fell on Sunday a week ago and all the weight went on my right knee.  I am much better but think it is going to just take time and patience.  At least I did not break a bone--I found out there is something as hard as my head. Ha!


  1. Love the pitcher!! The knitting is lovely and boy you've knitted a lot of items :) I've been enjoying this summer season because the weather has been cooler than usual.

  2. Marie - I LOVE those little sweaters! So precious! I'm looking forward to being able to knit something like that some day! Sorry to hear that you fell, but thank goodness that nothing was broken. :)

  3. Your knitting is BEAUTIFUL, Marie. I'm so sorry you had that fall, but glad nothing was broken! It gets so scary to take a fall. I enjoyed your beautiful flowers and knits! blessings ~ tanna

  4. Marie! I am so horrible at keeping up with reading blogs! I am so sorry to hear that you hurt your knee! I will keep you in my prayers! And of course, your work is always beautiful! I wish I knew how to knit! I tried crocheting a couple of times but just can't get the hang of it! Maybe someday! Keep up the good work! I am sure those sweet sweaters and blankets will be treasured! :) Love!
