Well… it’s been a month, since my iMac died. My normally overflowing inbox is now officially in shambles and I’m missing my old blog-visitation routine. Compared to the iMac, this particular iPad-generated post has taken about a billion times longer to complete. And the constant iPad screen finger-pointing/-swiping/-pinching has led to occasionally unfortunate and unintentional deletions :-/

Yep, blogging via anything less than a full-size computer/laptop is definitely the tedious way to go. But for now, this iPad is all I’ve got. And besides, this iMac-less predicament won’t last forever. So now’s my chance to meet the challenge!

Thankfully, a handful of “ah ha” iPad moments have saved my sanity. Yet surely by now, I’d have lost heart without you <3 Thanks so much for continuing to stop by!

Truly, life is like a box of chocolates… with all sorts of emotions brewing behind the scenes. It’s no good to keep emotions bottled-up, though. And blogging whilst under the influence of heavy emotion is not a great idea, either. But utilizing the growing selection of WordPress online emoticons is a fun form of digital expression… Now just imagine how fun it would virtually be, if these knitting emoticons—by Megan & Amy at PostStitch—were really real? I’d knitterally <3 that! ;) How about you?

the KWH iPad Show 💜 April snow showers

Hello & Welcome

to another episode of the
KWH iPad Show!

Today’s feature is the snow in our backyard,
as see through the camera-eye of my iPad :)

Snow is fun, but watching it melt is usually more fun! Saturday was a great day to watch melting snow, since our area woke up to a whopping 30 cms / 12 inches of it! We slept-in, but don’t mind missing half the show. It was all melted by sundown, anyway. Now that it’s gone, I’m pleased to have captured AND watermarked (what will hopefully be) the final flakes of the season via my iPad :) To do this, I used the WATERMARK online photo editing/watermarking website. Yup, gotta <3 learning something new—even though my iMac died and my blogging life has been turned upside-down…

Snow is funny stuff, though. It tends to linger, but our trees usually begin budding by Earth Day. This year’s snow melted a month ago, yet it’s been so windy/dry that we’re still waiting to see blooms ‘n buds :-/ April snow showers are nothing unusual, around here. Local old-timers claim to have seen snow every month of the year! Personally, since moving here in 2009, we’ve seen snow once in September and 50% of the time during the first week in May.

Anne Eunson’s artistry


Ooooh… gotta ♥ this lace net fencing! Our tired, old world could use more fencing like this! 💜 ♥ Jackie

What’s this? A fence?

A fence and a flowerbed?

Take a closer look . . . for this is no ordinary fence. . .

. . .this is a knitted fence . . .

. . . a Shetland lace fence, no less.

This beautiful and imaginative creation is the work of Anne Eunson of Hamnavoe, Burra. Anne loves lace knitting, and how better to express that affection than by completely wrapping one’s garden up in Shetland lace? The fence is fashioned from strong black twine (the same kind that is used to make fishing nets) and Anne knitted it up on specially adapted curtain poles. It took her about three weeks to knit enough lace to surround her front garden, using a 23 stitch repeat of a familiar Shetland lace pattern.

It kills me how the pattern is revealed so strongly, as if it were stretched around the garden…
