Not a Saturday Sky, But...

Remember all the snow on Monday and Tuesday? Remember????

Yesterday when I left for work it was still piled up all over the place, a winter wonderland that we almost didn't get this year.

But when I got home? Look what greated me!
I am not kidding. It was 75 degrees yesterday afternoon and it's going to maybe hit 80 over the next three days!!

Spring has sprung - and there's no question where the "flowers is..."

I took CC outside this morning in hopes that she'd be happy sitting in the sunshine for a few minutes (on my lap, she has no claws, so we don't get out much). She was miserable...crying and hiding her head under my arm in fear. (sigh)

So back inside we went. And I've spent most of the day busily cutting two of my largest bag styles - the Sadie and the Grand Mera. I hope to have photos to show you tomorrow night, but these bags are the most time-consuming and challenging to make! Still it's time for cat show bags, so come back and visit off and on over the next couple of weeks - you'll see some new and great fabrics (as well as a few old friends, too).

And I just can't wait any longer...I keep working on my Valkyrie Seraphim and I'm getting near the finish, but the lace is so lovely, especially in this yarn, that I just can't wait to show you:
Yes, there's a light blue lifeline in there, simply because I'm paranoid, but this is a really easy lace pattern and it's easy to see when you get off track (which I'm known to do when I'm glued to my news programs in the evening). Still, I believe in being safe rather than sorry! edited to add: I think I just found a yo that's not supposed to be there, just by supersizing this photo! ARRGH!

Isn't she pretty?

I hope you're having some lovely spring-ish weather this weekend - Don't forget that Daylight Savings Time begins tonight - Spring Forward!

Yay for spring and spring flowers! They make all the cold and brown of winter worth it!

Oh, poor CC. I hated to read that. I hope she's ok inside though (the house I mean). How is Meezer these days?

BTW, Mr. C is terrified of being outside too. We never take him outside except in a carrier. He's mellowed a lot since he's been with us but some fears remain.

Lovely pics Sallee and what a temp. Global warming I guess to see weather like this in March. I find it rather frightening.

Hugs, G

PS: Im sending you an email soon. Hugs again...

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
