Although its cold and gray today, springtime has come to our corner, and I'm glad. It's good to see green again, and flowers. The warming weather has me cleaning out the house and making plans--- I even cleaned up the art room! And wish me luck--- tonight I'm going to attempt to blow out some eggs and dye them (or maybe I should dye them first???) but just in case all doesn't go well with that, we're having 'breakfast for dinner' so it cant be a total bust!
Even though its warming up, I'm still knitting. Not too long ago I got a drop spindle, and my next goal is to learn to spin my own yarn. I'd like to work up to dying it too. I received this beautiful art yarn (sow above) the other day from my friend Dani's etsy shop, Pumpkinhaus. It is so pretty and I'm planning on making Robbie a little hat (I know, I know, another one??) for next fall and winter. He keeps getting bigger every day, and I know the hats he has now wont fit when the chill comes round again.
And, of course, we are now in the midst of Holy Week with Palm Sunday taking place yesterday. Palm Sunday is such a sweet day for children, and its one of the days that stick out in my mind as a child when I'd visit my grandmother's church. I loved the pageantry and feeling like you were part of something special.
Robbie is now 3 months old now (can you believe it?!) and I'm hoping we start settling into a nice routine with some naps and I can get back to a bit of painting. I've got so many ideas! I just need to get back into the swing of things. And this cold gray day seems like a good day to get started.
I'll talk with you all later!~ Hope you are well!
