We have beautiful green grass. The birds outside are building nests and chirping away. We hear them before it is even light outside. A sure sign, warmer weather is on its way. As for the sunshine, we await it eagerly!
The bird got some more work.
Started another 5 hour baby sweater.

The 21st Birthday Quilt top is done, ready for the next step. All the fabrics from the The Hobby Horse Quilt Shop.
To know how to wash a knitted article, the temperature at which to wash it, is important information. So the wrapper from the yarn, is given with the knitted item. It has all this on the label for the yarn. All it needs is a scarp of yarn, a hole punched in the wrapper, with the yarn looped around a button, so it does not get lost along the way. The other bit to add, is the size of the jersey.
Finished a baby hat with the leftover yarn, the pattern can be found on Kate's blog.
Four Seasons cross-stitch.

In some parts of the world, smock dresses are worn traditionally at Easter time. In many parts of the world they are worn as party dresses or to wear to church on Sunday. They were worn by many generations, passed on from one sibling to another. Many hope chests today, have these treasures, hidden inside, waiting for the next little girl, to give them a twirl. Memories of spinning in circles, with the dress turning many a little girl into a ballerina comes to mind.
