Spring is finally Here...

With the weather finally warming up
there is always a-lot more happening....

Spring...


Time for leisure seems to be never enough...

But this weekend I did mange a spot of
crochet...

A lovely African Flower Bag...

Hexagon Flower Bag...

With some jazzy lining...

and then it all snow balled from there...


Some little lined coin purses...

Hexagon Flower Purses...

Aren't they so sweet...

Many hours were spent...
"Springing" up the backyard....


I found some old "cheese" boxes at a clearing sale...


Spring...

and mounted them up on the tin wall of the shed...

Spring...


and an old water tank cut down
made perfect garden beds...

with lots of new seedlings planted...

Hopefully now that my hands have thawed out from the winter chill

There will be many more updates of Granny goodness
and spring time photos...

Thank you all for begin so patience with my little blog posts...
 chat soon my dears...

Lucky you! I think I will visit your blog very often from now,.... I live in Norway, surrounded by fjords and mountains 1000 m high, and here the fall has arrived! Today I saw the first snow on the highest peaks!! I love summertime so now it is a long long time for the next summer! But there will be a lot of knitting and quilting in my home.....!
I`ll be back soon!

What a contrast, your spring to our fall (although it's still great summer weather here in the PNW).

Love the backyard sprucing as well as the crochet!
