Happy Spring!

Here we sit under 8 inches 0f fresh snow! It was 66 degrees here yesterday. Argh! I had to post this picture of our Dusty Bear looking longingly out our front window. This is absolutely her most favorite weather. This morning when I let her out, instead of doing her business, she just proceeded to lie down and enjoy the snowy, cold goodness.

Notice all the snow on her coat.....LOL

Honey Bunny

Finished this up yesterday afternoon before my sister and her gang arrived. My plan is to make several of each of these "eastery" type ami's, collect them in a few really cute baskets I got at Michael's (with a coupon, of course!) and make arrangements out of them and preset them to my mom and MIL for Easter.

How much do I love spring break? Let me count the ways.....All joking aside, its the extra down time that I have during this week that lets me squeeze in an extra little project:

My sis and her family are making trails this way today and will be here through tomorrow. Yeah, a crochet-buddy!

El brek de espring esta aqui! (Spring Break is here!)

Hello blog buddies. The sky is gray, the ground wet, the temps are cold, and the air is dank....but I'm officially on Spring Break!!!! WoooHoooo! My DS came home from the university for the week, I have all my "chicks" in the same henhouse again.

I have a few things I've been dabbling in....

First I finished the Floaty Fall scarf from fall's 2009 Crochet Today. I didn't add the last row because I was working with stash yarn and ran out, but I still love it.

I have also been working on this Sea Shells scarf, the pattern is so easy to memorize and then its a mindless crochet in front of the TV and the results....spectacular. I have one row left to do around the entire scarf and then I am going to block it so the shapes are crisp.

Our music teacher is retiring from teaching this spring and I was at a complete loss at what to get her. She has been teaching for over 30 years, has been a great teacher, and a dear friend even though I've only worked with her for the last 3 years. I ordered this Music Note Afghan pattern form Chella's Crochet. It's working up fast and I think its the best gift for her. Gold watches or glass paperweights just are not going to cut it.

Poor bear! She doesn't like the Sea Shells scarf as much as I do........
