Sun illuminating a Columbine.

Yesterday evening the sun illuminated the flowers in the backyard.

My backyard is usually shaded, especially on one side.  But there is a small window of sunlight in the evening – just around 7:00pm right now.  The sun pours into the whole yard and for a brief moment the flowers are all outlined with light.

I grabbed the camera and started to take shots of the flowers as the light first hit and then faded.  It was magical.

We have a the May long weekend ahead and as normal I have more plans than time!  Knitting of course – lots of knitting.  I have a project to power through so that when the yarn arrives from The Buffalo Wool Company I can play.  The yarn and the beads are both on their way!

Halfway through and ready to start the edging!

I have knit the first ball from the Great White Bale and hope to at least start the second ball.  I need to set up for the lace border.  Once it is knit it will be painted, something simple as the design and yarn are a little more “rustic” than delicate!

The big plan this weekend is painting “Crystalline”.  The weatherman promises that Sunday and Monday should be dry and therefore I will be able to paint!  It seems like I have been waiting forever!

The time was never available when the skies were clear!  The Painting class during the Fibre Festival was like a tease – it just whetted my appetite!

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend as well.

Happy Knitting
