A FUN place to visit....

One of my very very most favorite places on the world wide web to visit is The Pioneer Women. This site has great stories, great writing, great photos and great recipes....what could be better!

P.S. I did hear a robin yesterday...Spring is here!


Waiting for Spring.....

I have been keeping my eye out for my first robin sighting. Somehow there is that sense of hope that Spring is just around the corner once I see the first robin. Although folklore has it that it snows 6 times on a robins back.... Looks like we are going to have a week of thawing days & hopefully we will loose our winter blanket.

Speaking of birds....I have finished a new cross stitch design featuring our feathered friends with one of my favorite verses. "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark". This is an early candle pocket that I worked on 28 count flax linen with 1 strand of floss over one thread...oh so dainty! Grungy beeswax tapers are then tucked in the pocket for a great early accent piece to place hearth-side.

Hoping for Spring,
