Weekend in Quarantine and Mother's Day

Hello Friends,

I hope that you are doing well and staying safe. Happy Mother's day! I will be Facetiming with my family soon tonight to spend some time with my mom, dad, and sister quarantine-style for Mother's day. I am focusing mainly on having some Facetime calls so we can see each other and I think this is most important today. We got my mom some gifts between my sister and I as well that she will be opening tonight while on the call. We will be all having dinner together and chatting on video which is what we did for Easter, and it felt similar to when we were able to get together for a holiday meal.

I finished the Positano puzzle that I have been working on most of the past two months. There are only 500 pieces, but it takes me quite awhile as I did not work on it every day. This puzzle is such a beautiful scene and it lifted my spirits while working on it. I would put a piece in here and there when I had a moment and really enjoyed working on the puzzle bit by bit.



The next puzzle I will be starting is a cat puzzle which is also 500 pieces and that I have also done before. Once I am done this one, I might buy another one if they aren't still all sold out. I really love making puzzle and might challenge myself to a bigger one next time around 1000 pieces or more.



I finished knitting the Merry fair isle ornament and currently do not have a project on the needles. I was contemplating starting to knit socks and I have some yarn for socks that I purchased a long time ago and started knitting a pair of socks that I did not finish. So I might use the same yarn for a simple sock pattern this time around. The yarn is Patons Kroy Socks in the colorway tourmaline stripes.


These flowers my fiancé's mom got us still look so beautiful and vibrant from last weekend and still bring us so much joy.


The philodendron is still hanging in there. I pulled a couple yellow leaves off before this photo but love how these are very resilient plants and easy to care for. My bamboo plant is also thriving and I love how bamboo plants are easy to care for, when the water is low, I just fill it back up and it stays happy and healthy. I love the plants in my home and they make me feel better being cooped up.



Thank you all for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed your weekend and have a good week ahead!

  1. I love house plants and have always had lots in my home, your sock yarn is lovely, I have two lots of sock yarn waiting for me but I know that once I get started on making socks I'll get addicted and nothing else will get done. I haven't done a jig-saw in a while because I hate breaking it up after all that work of putting it together, have a great week. xx

  2. I wish I had someone to do a puzzle with, I don't like doing them along (all those pieces!) and my husband doesn't care for them. I like Kroy sock yarn!
