Spring at last!

It finally is starting to feel like Spring around here. We still needed to wear light jackets, but there was a pleasant warm breeze and the sun was shining. It was a beautiful day!

Dave decided he wanted to have chickens this year. While he was outside building a home for them, I accomplished a lot indoors.

In anticipation of a beautiful day, I started out by tatting an Ice Drop in Spring colors!

It's been a long time since I've done any spool knitting. I actually started this yesterday, and then I doubled the length today. Spool knitting is very relaxing, and yes, I do have an idea for using my new found fiber fun. I'll let you know if my idea works!

I finished my Granny Square afghan today. This is child sized for one of my grandchildren.

I enjoyed working on the Granny Square afghan so much, I started another right away!

Dave has been asking me to make curtains for the treehouse for a couple of years. I finally gave in and cut out the fabric today. I think curtains are out of place in a treehouse, but Dave is busy making the inside nice for the grandkids, so I guess it won't hurt to do my part. I wonder what the grandkids will ask him to put in this year? They already have a chalkboard and chalk, a captain's wheel, and a slide. I'm guessing they'll want a table and benches or chairs of some sort so that they can sit out there and pretend. They'll be visiting before we know it, so I'm sure we'll have fun fixing the place up!


  1. I'm glad the weather is warming up over there. You have been making wonderful things. :) Oh, I envy your grandkids, the tree house sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. The tree house sounds great fun. I look forward to seeing what you do with your spool knitting!
