I love working with wool, the feel of it in my hands is very comforting and relaxing. I also love trying new projects, this is why the blog was started. I'm married to a wonderful guy for 30 years. Yes I was a child bride! We have 3 wonderful children, Erin, Gabrielle and Jimmy. Also a cat named Lily, more Queen Lily as she rules the house.

spring at last?

Well spring, sprang this week. But somebody forgot to tell Mother Nature, because it was a cold wet week. We had snow flurries, rain, low temps. I mean it is New England and what would spring be like if we did not have fools weather like we did? Some people have told me they have daffodils and crocuses blooming, but I have not seen them in my yard. Now today was a beautiful Saturday the sun was shining so brightly in the sky, but it was cold! As I am sitting here in the kitchen with the sun brightening my day I am FREEZING!
Today I made some little flower pin cushions, I have made them before, so easy to do, not a thought goes into them. I think I needed to do this little fun project just for fun.
You make them on a golf tee, and then place them in a spool to use while you are sewing. Or in my case just to add more pin cushions on my work table. Love them......
I finished this past week my sewing book that I had gotten from  http://atthehoneysuckletree.blogspot.com/ . A really great blog. Here is my finished work.
It came out pretty good if I do say so myself. It was a nice change doing some cross stitching. I had not done it in a while.
And last but not least, this past week my daughter and I made a fabulous recipe we had seen on the Create TV channel, New Scandinavian Cooking, pan seared scallops, with grapefruit. I have to say so easy to make, so fresh to eat, we were trying to bring spring to our house a bit earlier than it actually wants too!
It makes my mouth water just looking at it. And yes if you make a great and delicious dish to eat, I say take a picture of it and share!
Happy, happy, crafting! Enjoy your week.
