Saturday Kites and Needles Flying

 I'm happy to show you the kite festival in our town today.  The wind was perfect.  Little children were overjoyed at flying the kites.  Big kids like us, loved watching them too.  
This jelly fish was semiprofessionally flown by the vendor at the fair.  

So fly the kites and(I HOPE)  so fly my needles today. 
My goal: to finish the Mizzle shawl.  

On another exciting flight note, we had a female hummingbird at our feeder last night. SOMEONE was working and missed her.  I was told however, that Beatles threw himself at the screen and frightened her  away.  Here's hoping they are as bold as we have heard they are.  Here's hoping she returns.  Do you think she will?

I cannot fault little Beatle Bug, whose 2nd birthday is tomorrow. Just wait till you see his present. 

Are you flying high this Weekend?  

The final flight thought for today: 
Have you had a flight of wines?  We have a place called FLIGHT in town but we have never dined there.....

Flight of wines? After googling, yes I have.

My needles need to fly if I stand a chance of finishing the baby blanket within a week. I'm not at all sure it is going to happen.

If our hummingbirds are any example the kitties will not scare them off. Macy and Max chase all the birds from our yarn but the hummingbirds just sit and stare at them.

I don't know Flight but I love Cooper's Hawk and their Romance Red wine--my favorite wine!!

The kites are beautiful. Happy knitting!

That jellyfish kite is amazing!
No wine for me, I am sorry to say. It doesn't agree with the plumbing. :(

LOVE the kites!! I haven't had a flight of wines, though I strongly considered it while eating at The Grove in Austin recently. That was the first place I had seen "flights" offered. Looking forward to seeing that Mizzle! Happy Birthday to Beatle Bug!! blessings ~ tanna

Nice shots of the kites...the jelly fish must have been really fun to watch! Looks like a fun day. Hope you had fun flying your needles through the shawl.

I always think about "Let's Go Fly a Kite" from Mary Poppins when I think of that many kites in one place.

Not much flying off of my needles these days.

Love the kite photos.

I have done wine flights and it's fun to do to taste new wines without being committed to them. I have also done it with sparkling wines....yum!

Love the kite photos.
