At Long Last.....April ♥️






wee bit of Arrowroot cookie♥️




Well...

It is FINALLY here!

And...about time!

Yesterday...

After my raking...

I discovered a few new faces in the garden...

YUP!!!

Tulips and Daffodils!!

YAY!!!

And...my Basil indoors...

Has pushed out a few shoots!

How cool is that?

After making Miss V a spring earwarmer...

She showed up last weekend in her snappy new spring coat from Uncle Ryan and Auntie Anna....how cute is that????It has yellow flannel lining...and toggles on the front!

Now.....I must make her....2 new earwarmers....

One yellow and one navy...with alternate flowers!!!

                                        ****************

Hope you are all having a great day...

Not as promised here....grey...dull....windy.....chilly  :o(

Need to head out...and get some wool..and get crackin' on those ear warmers...

I have put the giant afghan away for a while....sooooooo big!

Thinking I might take it apart...a lot of work...and start again...GEESH!

               Enjoy your day...

                  Stay safe from April Fool tricks..........

                                 Cheers!  :o)

  1. I love Miss V's new coat. It's really snazzy cute looking. OH, that is a lot of work to unravel that afghan, Linda. I guess you could make lots of other things with the yarn though. We had a foot of snow last night here. It's unreal to see the piles of it and the drifts. Thankful for sunshine today though.

  2. Hello ....I do love all your crochet projects - I taught myself how to a couple of years ago dabbling in this and that. This winter I made many leg warmers or boot toppers. Miss V is such the fashionista sporting that spring coat - such a cutie!

    Enjoy!

    1. It was a kit from the $ store...a gift from my daughter....most likely a peat moss mix...
      I think the red pot is giving it a much redder hue than it actually is...
      Relax Amy.....Happy April to you!
      Glad you like the header...

  4. LOVE the header with the beautiful white blossoms. Miss V is a doll in her new coat. How cute is that! Now Nana will take it over the top with accessories. :) I had some time with my grandittles, Riley and Brad today. Way over-due. Had a great time. We have some brave little flowers peaking through the ground here, too. Such relief to see some new life finally. I noticed there's no dinner on the menu. Is that the April Fool's joke for the boyfriend? haha!

  7. How fun to see the first buds pushing there way through the dirt. I have one iris about ready to bloom.

    Miss V is adorable in that cute coat.

    I did do an April Fool to my dearest. At breakfast I mentioned that Molly kept staring under the bed, and upon a good look found a dead mouse... I wish you could have seen my dearest face...HaHa.."April Fool"...I don't think he thought it was as funny as me.!!!

    3. Oh oh.....I hope you didn't step in Martha's dog poop!
      Ewwwwwww....

    4. Ha ha! Yes, watch out for that dog poop! I'll be attempting to clean it up today.
      If spring is arriving in Ontario, it stands to reason it is arriving in upstate NY as well.

      About the poop and Spring!
