Busy, busy week

It's been a very busy week, but I did manage to get outside and take some spring pictures. You know it's really spring when you find asparagus coming up. There's only a few stalks coming up, but there'll be enough for a meal soon.

Even dandelions are a welcome, cheerful sight after winter. At least I think that until I've gotten sick of pulling them out the flower beds!

We have some late daffodils and even some tulips this year. Every wild critter around here will eat the tulips, so there are many years when all I get are little green stubbs at ground level.

On an actual fiber related note, I've always thought those fabric lined baskets were a really neat idea that would work nicely to keep current fiber projects organized. However, I also think that they're often quite overpriced. One day, the lightbulb went on (however dimly) and I allowed as how I have fabric, I have a basket, I have a glue gun. The basket is a good size that easily fits a 1/2 pound ball of roving or a cat named Trouble. She thinks it's hers and will often look at me piteously until I remove the wool for her.

Trouble looks so content in the basket! The basket is hers, no doubt about it.

Your Trouble looks nearly identical to my Trevor (who's trouble times ten!!!)

Welcome to the Spinning Wheel!
