Well...all my little spring daffodils, thank you for all the congratulations, I'll have you know that the soreness is abating a little every day. Which is good because I still have a lot to do outside, and I need to get every little pile in a bag so that it may travel away from my little yard and go wherever it is that it goes...Now is the time I wish I had access to a truck or two...

any ideas?

The weather, like I said, has been lovely...and I believe I read that we were going to set some heat record today...Yikes!


I mean, it's perfect weather for all the skirts I have stashed away (which seems to be a bit more than I remember...tee-he) but sad for the forest and trees, and little critters that need to drink water to survive...only because it's been a little dry here as well (darned drought)

And the Juniper is starting it's yearly pollen/bloom thing, so I've been a little sniffly as well...which is to be expected, as we have no less than three types of Juniper up here in the Northland. The cat also suffers from a little springtime asthma as well...and has been wheezing around the house for the last couple of weeks as well.

Thank you for all the banner love...they are so easy to make. I think it really takes longer to cut out all the little triangles and pin them than anything. You have to laugh though, because I laid everything out on Saturday night, pinned it all up, and carefully carried it back to the studio...where I proceeded to sew it all out carefully, taking each pin out as I went...and was congratulating myself on how fast it was going, and how much I was accomplishing, and how creative I am...

That's when I realized that I had run out of bobbin...halfway through sewing the very first triangle...and they were no longer attached to the rick-rack at all, and I was going to have to start the process all over again...

Oh brother...

oh my garden buddy... I simply LOVE the hanging glass colored balls that decorate your juniper like a Christmas tree! I was charmed by those in the all-time favorite pic of your of the candleolier - I spied them then and love your style of sprucing up the outside as well as the inside! I so wish that we had shops here in my part that had sweet, ecclectic items like those! Love the pics and congratualtions on the work! Your home is absolutely sweet and inviting! If someone walks in your shop bearing a jar of lemonade, you'll know it's me!! : )
