We in New England had our fill of winter! This past week I started spinning some wonderful natural colored fleece into yarn. I completed many skeins, washed and set them and moved them into the shop waiting for the right person to come along and fall in love with them.

I also completed a wonderful little shoulder shrug with some hand dyed hot pink yarn. It's just enough to keep the chill away, worn over the shoulders ending above the elbows. I added a really cool square button which I think was perfect for this little shrug. Great for Spring!  It came out just perfect.

I weeded the strawberry patch, and rhubarb patch which took some time,  a little here, and a little  there  over the week and it was done before I knew it.

Hi Dave, my little farm hand resides right next door to us so I understand about the plum ticketed out! But it's a wonderful thing being part of his life on an almost daily basis. Enjoy your little buckaroo!

Pam, Yeah, spring is here. The garden is planted, the grass is growing, the flowers are blooming, the kids are playing outside, and the birds are tweeting in the trees. Oh, yeah, spring is definitely here. I like it. I love the little helper and his tractor. Grandson's are the greatest aren't they? My daughter and grandson live with me so I get a full dose of grandson each and every day. Some days old grandpop is plum tuckered out. Ah, well, ok, every day old grandpop is plum tuckered out. Have a great spring time garden day.
