I'm making progress on the Japanese Flower Garden shawl, but it is slow! I don't get to crochet every day, so I think I am doing pretty well!
Update: The pattern can be found
I fed my yarn addiction with some yummy yarn. I plan to use this for some dishcloths.
It is definitely starting to look like spring in South Texas. I saw this Eastern Tiger Swallowtail on my Carolina Jasmine.
I'm thrilled with the sunshine. I'm torn between gardening and crafts. Gardening wins when the weather is this nice!
Soon my Cannas will fill this corner. I can't wait. I'm tired of the blahness of winter!

The chickens just want out to taste all the tender green shoots!
Y'all come back,

  2. Lucky duck you having the weather that your having and seeing butterflys and flowers. I am jelouse! Lovely photos. Have a great day !

  3. Lovely work, lovely pictures... where can I get a copy of the flower shawl pattern, so pretty!

  4. The flowers for the shawl are beautiful, Lorilee! You are a woman of many talents.
    I'm with you... when the weather is warm, I can't hardly stand to be indoors even when I have so much work to do.
    Love the hen pic- she looks like she's thinking of a way to break out so she can sample the grass! *hehe*

  5. Spring! Big was snowing yesterday here in Reno!

    My chickens are itching to get out of their pen and forage in the green grass, too.
