The First Day of Spring!

How wonderful!  The first day of spring!
Don't these pictures look spring-like
We still have 18-20 inches of snow. 
Yesterday, we had to go to Milwaukee for a doctor's appointment.  
It was a ride from hell until we were about 80 miles south of home.  
It had snow and was snowing so the roads kind of were crummy.
Once we got to the doctor's office,  I had to stop.  
 You can't see the legs of the chimnea.  
 Bob put more shelves in the Ed/Sewing room closet.
I have my photo boxes with my over-dyed floss in.  
The DMC on bobbins are in the plastic boxes.  
Behind the basket, is the drawers with silk floss and perle cottons.  
The black box is a wooden shaker box for the Blackbird Design boxes.  
 My mom, Katy and I went to the yarn store/alpaca farm today.  
My mom wanted to get her something for her birthday.
Katy figured something from the yarn store would be a good thing.  
She found a book with hat, gloves, scarf patterns would be a good thing.
I had a gift card from Christmas and thought I would look for some solid colored wool sock yarn.  
I have lots of bits from socks that I could use for heels and toes.  
Here's what I got.  
 I thought while I was inbetween projects, I would work on my Stacy Nash Christmas at Hollyberry Farm for a few days.  
I reckon that is it for now.  
Since we did the trip to Milwaukee in one day:  left the house at 7 am and got home 7 pm and drove 7 1/ to 8 hours, I took today off.  It is too hard to try and work after a day like that.  
You know, I'm not getting any younger.  
Hope you have a great week!
Thanks for stopping and taking the time to comment. 
I do enjoy hearing from you.  
Keep on Stitching


  1. Spring will come...have faith!

  2. Oh dear, still so much snow there. Hang in there, my friend!

  3. Here I sit in KY complaining about it being cold and then I see all your snow.
    {{hanging my head in shame}}
    Awesome organization you have there...a skill I lack because I can't seem to find anything when I want it. Sometimes I root through my stuff and find things I forgot I had. It's like Christmas!
    That's a long trip. I used to say anything over 4 hours is too much. That was before I got in to the nuke business. Can't wait till I don't have to travel so much.

    Gorgeous stitching.....
    Have a great weekend!

  4. Happy Spring Monica. I hope the snow melts soon for you.

  5. I do hope that the snow begins to melt in your area soon. Pretty yarns that you picked up!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. We had snow just north of us with more coming this week. The robins have been here for just over a week now. Spring is surely on the way!

  7. I know it is spring now, but will this winter ever end!! Love all of your goodies!
