Small pleasures!

Ready for spring, pink tulips in a forcing jar. Snow in the front yard lingers!

On the back porch, pots of daffodil bulbs in the morning sun.....noses beginning to peep up!

Meanwhile, I have concern for our daughter and her family near Atlanta, as the winter storm approaches and shuts down the city.

I am knitting two pink cardigans for the twins there, but the cold my almost be gone by the time these are finished! I knit on one sweater, then the other so that they will finish at about the same time!

I have made several of these pink burlap buntings....for the in the mail...and one hanging here!

I am enjoying a new lime green table/ desk from the thrift store. Now I have a special corner for writing, sketching or just being!

Still loving my latest scrappy quilt!

Thinking of adding another vintage sewing machine to my has roses on the case and is 3/4 size. A Kenmore 1040, sigh!

Of course I don't NEED it!

I hope your daughter and her family are okay. It seems this winter just doesn't want to quit.

Your lime green table looks so happy and bright. It will be a wonderful place to create.

And where in the rules does it say we have to NEED something before we purchase it? LOL

Oh your flowers will be so sweet when they open up - and the sweaters are just lovely - such lucky grandbabies. I hope they will be ok during the snow storms - I have a friend farther north and she said everything is absolutely shut down from the snow.
