Filling in the background with assorted darks, also from the worm basket!! Even though I thought I drew random circles, they appear to be in rows! I'm not as random as I'd like to think I am!!

Saturday was the Gathered Treasures Show here in Mansfield. They had a great crowd and there was lots to see ~ primitives and antiques and wool!!

A couple of weeks ago, this old girl had another birthday! Beautiful flowers from SIL, Rachel!

This darling little fish sculpted with Fimo clay is from Marco Margo! A nice gift certificate to the salon, a tote from Pikes Place Market and lots of cards and phone calls! These birthdays come around pretty fast!

Yesterday, I drove to our lake place to get ready for the carpet cleaners and back home today! Had dinner with friends and moved furniture and vacuumed ~ getting ready for a fun summer!

Now to put the hooking room back together after the show. And then some serious hooking time!!

It was 76 deg yesterday and tomorrow SNOW!! Can you believe it? The daffs and Lenten roses aren't going to be happy!! Surely, this will be the end of it!!

So here's wishing you all a Happy Spring ~ it really is just around the corner!!

Ta ta!!

Your fish is an absolute hoot. Fun.
Lovin' your rug. There is an endless supply of worms, isn't there?
Our ground is white this morning. The good thing is that we know it won't stick around for long...sigh.
Happy spring???

Your circle rug is looking marvy! Happy B'day, you received lots of great goodies in celebration from good friends. It was even higher than 70's here but won't reach 60 tomorrow. Hopefully no snow for us as I want it outa here!.

Alice, HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY. I'm so glad that you are remembered on your special day. I hope that you had loads of fun.
Your circle rug is looking fantastic. I love hooking circles.

That Femo sculptured fish is the bomb. Right in style with today's bold colors.

Spring blooms fills me with such joy, it's like a breath of fresh air. Those early bloomers are pretty hardy.
We still have some snow left so no blooms here yet.
