Knitting niece...

My niece is a wizard with knitting needles.
She makes the most delightful things... these whimsical pumpkins, for instance. Lovely trinkets that make me smile.
We were tickled to have her visit this past weekend.  She loves all our animals, and they all love her.

See that tiny bunny in her hands?  She climbed right into the rabbit hutch and snuggled babies.

Bravo was so tired from the visit he curled his 45 pound body up into the bed meant for much, MUCH smaller dogs.  And looked cute doing it.

The weather was chilly, windy and Novemberish.  But the colors were still grand. 

  Rachel, niece and I spent some very happy hours exploring antique stores, a joy we all appreciate.  I found a few treasures... a white metal bread box, some fabulous ironstone soap dishes, a plate with Lady Slipper flowers. Nothing to break the bank, but fun trinkets to remember the day.

I love it when family comes to visit us here at FairWinds. They stitch vibrant strands of color into the tapestry of our lives.
