Here is a postcard I just received from a postcard swap I'm participating in on Ravelry.com. I should get a total of 5 since I sent out 5. I know 3 of mine have reached their destination so far.
The other side says that this is from Chandelier Drive Thru Tree in the Redwood Forest of California, but that the postcard is decades old as they haven't allowed cars near here in a very long time! So neat!
Here is a newly opened Hibiscus bloom from a plant that was a cutting from my larger hibiscus plant.

So there's this thing called "Stash Dash". It's a friendly competition, mostly with yourself, which is hosted by a couple of women who call themselves "The Knit Girllls". The Stash Dash runs from 12:01am on May 26th and will run through 11:59pm August 20th this year, and the goal is to finish as many projects as you can. You then count your finished meters, and you then post at Ravelry the number of meters you accomplished. I accomplished 7750.6 yards or 7085.6 meters. I'd say that's pretty good. Here are the items I've done. It includes knitting, crochet, and spinning.
