I think it is most fitting that the first poppy blossom opened yesterday in honor of Memorial Day weekend. It was just gorgeous yesterday in the late day sun, almost as amazing as this field of 300,00 knitted poppies at the Chelsea Flower Show. Just.Stunning.
Carole shared a link to BOTNS Book Bingo on Wednesday and Kym shared her card yesterday, so like a good lemming, I printed my card out and am IN IT TO WIN IT! Well, perhaps not with Carole playing – seriously, that girl can read and read fast!! It boggles my mind. Regardless, it seems like a fun way to spend the summer and that’s my story and I am sticking to it!
I am so good with some of these; book set in another country – check! Read another book by an author already used for this Bingo card – check! Book recommended by a librarian – check! (Thanks Carole!!) Perhaps this will be easier than I think. If you wanted to up your reading game this year, this will help! And, I am feeling decidedly child-like, awash in memories of Summer Reading at the library. It was the best thing ever for the summer vacation!
Now on to the Friday Links:
Feeling left out because you don’t have flock of sheep?
And, today’s pattern reveal is just stunning by the Baa-ble Hat creator!
River Flow sounds like the perfect summer knit.
Joji has a beautiful little shawl that takes just one skein of sock yarn! Which also gave me an earworm.
I will be nice and share. Have an amazing FriYAY and an even better LONG weekend! See you all back here on Monday!
