Red Birds,Blooms and New Books

Feeding the birds is one of my favorite thing to do.Although I think I might have to take out a bank loan to continue to feed them sometimes I go through over 25 lbs of feed a week ,and this is just with one feeder.This little red bird is patiently waiting for me to fill the feeder .But what ever the cost it is well worth it because you can't but a price on the beauty of mother nature.

Our yard has been quite dismal this year after the drought this summer to the long cold wet winter, but with the peach tree starting to bloom things are starting to turn around and look a little more like spring.

As you know by the post below I have started to crochet again .In this process I have hit a few stumps you might say.Although the Internet is quite informative I decided I needed a little more,so I went to the used book store and found a couple "self help" books.I did find a crocheting for dummies book and if these don't get the job done then that will be my next route.

Best Wishes

Crochet and Fenton

With Our First Grand baby on the way (September) and me admiring all of the wonderful crocheting of Lallee at Lallee's Cottage and Pattie at Crafty Obsessions.I have started crocheting again.I learned how to crochet when I was a girl from my Mother.It has probably been ten years or more since I had crocheted anything.The first thing I made was the sweater we have not found out yet what gender the baby is so I made this off-white I will embellish this when the gender is determined.At the present time I am working on a Afghan that is in the shape of a star .This was very difficult for me to start and I had to do quite a bit redoing to get this correct, but have have gotten about eleven rounds done and it is coming along quite nice.I have included a closeup of the yarn to show all of the colors in the yarn.

The picture at the top of this post is a picture of a little crocheted Easter egg I mad just in time for Easter.The little duck is a Fenton piece that my hubby gave me for Easter.

Best Wishes

P.S. I would love to link to others Bloggs put I can not figure out how.Could some one help me?

Spring Things

One Friday night we got the first real snowfall of the year.

Although I would have prefered it say maybe aroung Christmas or January but two weeks before Easter,well I enjoyed it just the same.I will have to confess I am a SNOW LOVER!!!!!and I am sure that if I lived a little futher north I would be sick of the white stuff by now.

Sunday was a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine and some of the snow still on the ground.Here is a picture of my dog Tally enjoying the warm sunshine.

Easter is just around the corner.

And here are a few of my favorite things.
