Happy Spring

Greetings everyone: spring has finally sprung, as I sit here with my office window open, I can hear the gentle rain falling a train horn and birds singing, something I have missed this past winter.
We have been busy working on the house, I did get my spring cleaning done along with a garage sale with my dear friend Cheryl, we had a blast, it was two days long with lots of people shopping.
I met a lady who was shopping she was from a town two small towns away, she told us about trying to raise money for a new library,  in the small town of Kimball,  Mn. they are having a breakfast to raise some money one of many things they will be doing, they are having a silent auction, I am making twelve different colored beaded ornaments for the auction.
This is what I have done so  far last evening and today.

I have been stitching a little and want to get more done, this is from my Class project from Jeannette Douglas last month, not much progress. This is the Needleroll.

I hope to finish this whole set before May is over, good luck to me.

I bought flowers and hope to get them in pots by tomorrow evening, its raining now, looks like a little break for tomorrow, maybe then.
I wish you all a great spring and hope you are getting things done inside and out with your stitching.

You've been busy! Garage sales are so much work. I hope you did well with yours. You are so sweet to make ornaments for their silent auction. Did you sell any at your garage sale?

Your needleroll is gorgeous! That is very kind of you to make something for the silent auction. I hope they make lots of money as libraries are so important!

How nice of you to donate your beautiful ornaments.
The JD piece is beautiful, can't wait to see it all finished.
It's finally Spring here too, we've had some nice temps the past week.
But, now the rain comes, it rains most of May here, sometimes torrential rains too.
Have a great week.

Bless your kindness to the library fund; love the ornaments.
That needleroll set will be a proud accomplishment.
The April showers have continued into May
and although the sun is shining now, thunderstorms later this afternoon
(when I must go out...isn't that usually the way?)
