Spring Has Sprung…

Look at what my friend Claire finished while on Spring Break this week…The pattern can be found in the book called ‘Meadowsweet Home’ by Needl' Love  (Renee Nanneman) and this particular pattern is by Maggie Bonanomi and is called Nesting Notion. (Maggie also designed Settler’s Pride!)

How cute is this??  Gorgeous job!  Claire also dyed most of her wool…Look at those blues and greens and the RED berries!!  Makes you want to touch it and see if it is as soft as it looks..

Is this little wall hanging not perfect for Spring!?  Claire’s not sure whether she should hang it from a branch or put pennies around it or frame it with an actual frame.  Whatever she does, it’s just lovely!

Thanks for sharing, Claire!  Now it’s back to the Ol’ Salt Mine for you…all those little Kindergarten Rug Rats are waiting!!  Put on a happy smile and go get’em!!

We have got the nicest neighbours!!  Look at what Debbie brought over…home baked, still warm Pumpkin bread…which we had for dessert last night!  How kind and thoughtful was that!!  Delicious!!

So cute with the baby birds in the nest.

Love the birds, beautiful piece.
I do love camping and meeting new people.
Unfortunately a lot of younger campers with obnoxious kids, ruin it for the rest of us;)

I keep looking for those old suit coats to shrink down but no luck yet so am just going to have to breakdown and buy enough to do a small project. Can't you just hear those little birdies chirping for Mommy to feed them. Enjoy your pumpkin loaf at coffee break this morning!
