- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Early Spring? You don't say?
As I write this, I can hear outside the snow plow pushing several inches of partly cloudy off the street. It has been snowing all day, not the fierce snow that the winter can bring in a fury, but rather the big flaked snowglobe winterwonder, which can deposit just as much snow but in a more gentle fashion. And then, there is the groundhog which I eluded to in a previous post something about early spring as opposed to 6 more weeks of winter...Really now?
My DH took these today at the Nature Center, he drove me to work, there was a program about bird banding, so the boys came along also. They catch birds gently in a large net, and place a small band around their leg to track them. They caught 5 today, 3 of them already had bands.
