3 Horse Hitch



Thankfully I had my camera with me when driving down a country road today.
I was returning from an estate sale happily thinking of my new treasures. When
I saw this scene, I stopped for a couple photos. This is no ordinary barn door!

My Happy Spring Tree


A couple of mild sunny days and the official first day of spring made me decorate this tree all Pretty-in-Pink!!! Found some stray bunnies and a pink flamingo and called it good. Very cheerful while we wait for snowbanks to disappear. Daffodils are up, robins have returned and pussy willows are all fuzzy!

March~In Like a Lion




....and oh, how we hope the month of March goes out like a lamb! In fact, some mild weather would be welcome any time now. Talked to my daughter yesterday who lives in the Valley of the Sun, otherwise known as Phoenix, AZ. Temps were nearing 90* there as she was sweeping bouganvilla and palo verde blossoms out of her office back into the courtyard!! Here it was -10* at dawn and by sunny afternoon it was all of 10* above zero! We thought it was lovely, however, and walked the dogs on the ice along the shore of the lake in the sunshine!

Will share some photos of knitted dish cloths here... fun pick up work on a wintry day.
The green/teal cloth was made for me by my friend. She gave me the pattern book, too.

I made the creamy one from the pattern book.

And now I am working on a "waffle stitch" cloth... directions shared
in the blog "Homespun Living." Check it out.
