And Spring is here--
and I have even seen and felt the Sun a couple days now--
and they say our temps here will be mid 70's next week--
Just in time for--
for all good bunnies to smell the tulips!!!

I did get a couple more small counted cross stitch projects stitched--
Did this running rabbit--she is leaping over 3 flowers--
what you say--
you don't see any flowers--just stems--
the  flowers will be buttons--one of these days!!!

the other cross stitch I have not gotten a picture of yet--
and am nearly done with a third one!!!
These are in last years "Lamb" series!!

I am still decluttering--slowly!!!
Did take a couple bags full of quilts and pillows to the Odessa library for them to use as raffles or to sell to raise some money's for books today!!
But now I am down to the 'hard' part--
sorting fabrics and quilting items and moving my sewing things to the dinning room area!!!
anyone want to come and help me????????????
(Except for you, Di, we need you get this decluttering thingy done--
we are getting tired of hearing about it!!!!!!!!)
Hugs, di and miss gracie

and nearly a week of it is gone already!!!
But it is ok--
cause the challenge for this month is:
----anything you want it to be----
----you decide on your own challenge, and let me know what you are planning to do--
and it can be anything from--sewing, quilting, knitting, organizing, gardening, cleaning,--
just set yourself one or two challenges for this month--

and then enjoy all the new things about 'spring'--
( or fall is that is your season--where you live)

Have a wonderful day--
hugs, di and miss gracie

I actually did a bit more decorating for Easter--
I love this wool hanging--
I never knew where or how to hang it--
so nearly gave it away--when I got this idea--
and now it is a keeper!!!

and here is what is on the dry sink under that window--
the best news is--
that this dry sink is cleared off for once so I can decorate!!!!!!!!!

and this is the top of the lastest table I bought--
and it is actually 'clutter' free for once!!!!

The other day I was in a bad way--and I needed a chocolate fix--
so walked over to the new health food store and this is what I found--
yep--this little bitty bar--
but--let me tell you--
it hit the spot!!!!

hugs, di and miss gracie
