Spring forward

Is anyone else ready for Spring???  It feels like it's been a long winter.  Maybe its due to a lack of outdoor time, patio time ...and warmth. 

Shaking off that sluggish feeling started with moving flower pots/tubs on the patio and pondering this year's garden  .....  Finding ladybugs in residence, pure bliss.

Indoors, a much needed purge in my closet.  The items removed were bundled up and delivered to the thrift store.  Extra space in the closet, priceless.

Since my last post there have been finishes....

off the qsnap, now to decide on a finish either a pillow or frame

eco dyed fabric with applique pieces and hand stitches

a gift stitched for a friend, remembering a parent.

Monday was sunny and warm and yes real patio time.   A pair of eagles stayed in view.  Smaller birds flitted about.  The hummers still hold court on 'their' patio.  And then there was a ladybug on the trellis...... I watched as it walked up, down and around a spindle, sometimes twice.  There didn't seem to be a sense of reaching the end of the line with no where to go, simply adjusting the route and carry on.
Maybe this applies to us 'simply adjust the route and carry on'.

think Spring!!

Definitely feels like spring here, even on the gray, chilly days.
