What's With the Weather?

Yesterday it poured - I mean poured!  The day was grey and wet - much more like January than mid-April.  The rain gauge had topped out at 11/2" by 3:00pm. What a wonderful day to have a garage sale! I should not complain as at least Spring does not equal tornadoes in this part of the world.  Still, I was surprised at the number of people who decided to spend part of their day dodging puddles and rivulets to come to the sale.  


I call this my "Six Pack".  I liked several of the new Dames of a Needle designs.  And I enjoy the almost instant gratification of "smalls".  I'm always up for stitching a primitive-style peacock...  

But even grey, rainy days can't hide the fact that Spring is here!
I think my muscari are going to be wonderful in a couple of weeks.

Blue and yellow - is there a better plant combination?

I love the new stash! The blue & yellow flowers are great together. I love that combo almost as much as I love red and white!
