First I want to wish HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lauren from Rugs and Pugs. I hope that she had a great birthday and that she blew all the candles and that her wish will come true.

Today has been a busy day for me and yet I didn't accomplished much. I had to work at the farm this morning and went to breakfast with friends and then to church, When I got home I got visit from my daughter and four grandkids,then after they left two more friends stopped by. I managed to get in about half hour of hooking and it was time to go back to work at the farm. After work I made a quick stir fry and went to a large church meeting with surrounding parishes and it's almost 10:00 PM and didn't get much done on my rug.

My granddaughter M. went into my snippet basket and she even brought a small plastic pail to put them in. She saves all my little wool snippets and has a plan to used them creatively in one of her new project. I've asked her to document her process and she has agreed to take photos of her project using all my snippets.

She is dividing all the snippets by color. These are the hands of a very creative young lady.

As I was leaving for the barn, I noticed these tulips poking out from the ground and they were covered with snow yesterday. I had to go back in to get my camera. A sure sign that spring has arrived.

And I noticed these daffodils as well. They were planted two falls ago in a very dry sheltered corner that doesn't get much rain and I didn't thought that they would even come out this spring but they still survived although it looks like that they have suffered.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving a comment.  JB
