a sneak peek...

1. ... of what I've been crocheting lately

(the colour is, in fact, darker - lavender blue)


2. ...we've only had a sneak peek of spring so far.

I've found this quote, which describes our weather perfectly well:

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.

~Charles Dickens

Was it really the first day of spring yesterday? I had to double-check the calendar!

Anyway, happy spring (or happy autumn) everyone!

I'll talk to you next week - I've decided not to take my laptop with me (remember? we're going home on Thursday! Yay!!!)

Take Care!

Have a lovely time and leave the computer behind so you get to spend all your free time with your family! We look forward to seeing you again later. Lovely crochet and I like that quote - it's been a bit like that here!

Your crochet looks lovely. I like that Dickens quote-most apt. It is the time of year when it is really hard to decide what to wear! I missed the beginning of Spring-but it was very Spring like yesterday. I hope you have a good time at home!

Crocheting is so relaxing! How lovely to be going home on Thursday - enjoy!
I notice you're left-handed - who taught you to crochet?

Gorgeous work! I love the colour... and even more if it is a bit darker!

What type of yarn are you using? It looks like it has a "silky" feel to it. The color is lovely!

Have a wonderful trip home!

What a pretty color! Hmm...what could it be?! Good for you - for leaving your PC at home while you spend time w/ family! There's no app for that either :)

Despite the sun I can still feel a chill in the air. It is definitely Spring though.

take care,
