Fiber Arts Friday

 Purple Shell

It was fun to learn crochet.
Which finds me in a lull between projects and I do not do well with idle hands.
So hexapuffing it is.
Such a great way to use up scrap yarn.
'Only' 271 to go before I have enough to make a Beekeepers Quilt.

I left the Farm to head back into the city with this happening.

I hear we got 6" when it was done.
In mid March.
So late into the year.
But I do like snow.
Apparently, I always have.

What do you See?

Or a really challenging restoration project?
Would it's setting change your outlook?

Hope your day is full of looking at life from the bright side.
And always seeing the big picture.

Happy Sunday


Most of the 16 inches of snow that fell several days ago had melted by the time we returned to the valley.
Still pretty though.
Maybe not so much for Fritz.

The Good, the Bad, and the Fun

The good:
Helping the boys transplant the snow peas, peppers and cilantro they had started from seeds.

The Bad:
Collecting hugs and kisses enough to sustain a Marme until I see my loves again and heading though the departure gates....
getting my knitting out to await boarding....
then finding out that my would be connecting flight was cancelled.
{and after a period of frantic phone calls, tears, hysteria, etc...}
The Fun:
An extra day of sharing in the very distinct personalities of these two fine boys.
I am home in DC, with lots of happy memories, full of thanks to My Kate and her Kev for letting me share in so much of their lives.
Only 10 1/2 weeks until they move back to our area.

Perfect Day. 
Hope yours was too.

Look What I Found

Daffodils and hugs,

hands to hold,

well, only one hand was free to hold....the other had to carry the really big bag coming out of the toy store

and the most perfect lunch dates.
