Happy Anniversary to me!

This flower, a moonflower, bloomed because it's his favorite flower that I grow - bloomed just for him to say Happy Anniversary. We've been married 19 years today.

This is the schematic for the new Grazing Sheep bag I'm going to start knitting as soon as I dig out needles and stuff. I wanted to make it much bigger than the pattern called for, so I decided to make it a square (well, rectangular) bag instead of flat. I'll have to give it a bottom too, but that doesn't need to be charted. Each of the front and back will have the sheep scene and the sides will be just grassy hills. (The picture only shows the front, a side and the back - the other side is assumed - well it's drawn out too, but behind the back.) I ordered several extra balls of the various greens today, so hopefully they will be here before I run out of the first green. I'm debating how I want to do the sheep. I've already decided that the feet and faces will be duplicate stitch and I'm thinking that the sheep might should be too - because I absolutely hate intarsia. Haven't decided that yet . . . . I'll let you know what I decide.
