Projects! and some flowers, 'cuz we all need a little Spring!

I am happy to have finished some crafty projects:

This winter took a mitten class at a yarn shop and I'm super happy with how these turned out! They were a gift for my mom and they fit her perfectly. It was the first time I had any formal knitting instruction and I was so excited after each class about all the I had learned. I hope to take a sock class next!

I also finished and bought - thanks to a rocking deal from zulilly - a photo book for 2012. (There's no picture because I can't seem to find it in blogger's options from iPhoto.) Since we don't take tons of pictures, for now, we've been documenting our years in photo books and that has worked for us.

 Homemade laundry soap -- we bought a new washer (!!). Does anyone know if homemade laundry soap works in HE washers? Peanut Butter. After two failed attempts, I've found a good "recipe" for making my own peanut butter. And Loki underneath our thyme and oregano plants, just because he's cute!

And some pics from around Bay View: Church steeples against gray skies and geese walking on ice (taken last week when there was ice on the little pond).
And, as promised, some flowers from our recent trip to the Domes.

 And the flowers that have graced our table for a couple of weeks -- thanks Mom and Dad B!

Those mittens are AMAZING! I am so jealous! Also, I am so HAPPY that it has finally been shouted to the world that you are going to be a mother! Can't wait for the day!
