Spring Rains

It's a wonderful thing! We've gotten two rain storms this week and I'm sooooo happy! Why? Well... because it's not snow, that's why! lol! Plus, with the soaking rains combining with some warmer temps... all the grass is greening up, and the forsythia and blooming trees are popping open... color... beautiful color! Welcome! :-)

A couple of months ago I had won a giveaway over at The Wooden Acorn. Valerie sent along a top quality wool kit with threads for the Maggie B White Flower Pillow... I've finally gotten around to stitching it up...

It was a relaxing stitch all in neutral tones... and let me tell you... the wool was felted to perfection and feels like buddha! :-)

We all like posts with lots of pictures... lol... but, I haven't finished too many stitchy projects... so, I'll share a picture of a Hydrangea plant that I picked up at Home Depot right before Easter.

So many color variations showing up with all the hybridizing these horticulturists are doing... I sure hope this plant will weather the winters here as I would love for it to return each year bigger and bigger!

Enjoy your weekend!
