New WIP update and Spring walk photos

March isn’t yet over, but we have some high Spring weather happening here. In fact, the cherry blossoms are already in bloom two weeks early. I will get outside tomorrow and take you some shots before they’ve all disappeared for this year.

Meanwhile, here are a few pictures I took in the meadow at the beginning of the week — some neighborhood ladies were out doing their seasonal mugwort harvest. You can read my post from last year where I mention this practice. The young leaves of mugwort are best for making Spring rice cakes and other seasonal delights.

I’ve also started a mandala that will become a pillow cover (after I make two matching ones). I’m using a pattern by Lilla Bjorn Crochet and several colors of Scheepjes Softfun yarn. The mandala has a raised pattern made from front post stitches. Can’t wait to show you the finished product; it’s moving fast, so I might be done next week.

It was blustery the day we visited the meadow.
