This is what set off this burst of energetic yard work! lol I've also been doing spring cleaning inside. It's amazing how much dust collects in a place with wood heat! And then, I'm one of those housekeepers that never notices dust until it starts avalanching when I pick up something off a nic-nac shelf! Oh well... next thing you know I'll be washing windows. I did wash the curtains. That's a small job as I have curtains in the bedroom and one valance in the living room and one in the kitchen. The rest of the windows are bare. I like to see out.
I have been working on some wind chimes for a gift shop when I take a break from yard work. Well, I'm lazy, overweight, and will be 63 years old in a couple weeks, so I need to sit down frequently. I get more done that way, too!
Fiber arts have been kinda left waiting. We did get to Ashland to see friend Aliza when I was up. Got to pet the cutest little twin kids! They are cashmere goats. She also gave us some lovely black fleece from her yearling ram. It spun up sooo soft and lovely! And I left with 2 dozen eggs. Real hard shelled, orange yoked farm eggs! I'd forgotten. Almost makes me want to get chickens again!
I do have a pair of fair isle socks on the needles from some handspun, and one 14" square woven for my vest. Also the front and back of an Easter-egg dyed vest knitted. It needs ribbing yet. But I havne't finished the yard yet!
And... my daughter and 4 grandchildren are coming out from Georgia this summer when school is out! I'm excited about that!
I will try to keep more up to date here, tho. Also I see that it has been more like a month than the two weeks I say in the other entry. Bad Hazel! lol Well, I hope you all are enjoying spring, too!
