Spring Has Sprung!
Our neighbor had the tree guy out last week to take care of several in his yard. He asked me about a tree that sits right on the property line almost split down the middle - half theirs, half ours. The tree was in bad shape and neither of us wanted to see it go but it had become a danger because either way it fell, it would land on one our houses. We all agreed to let them take it out. For the neighbors, it was a sad goodbye because of the shade the tree provided. For us it was a sad goodbye because we have watched woodpeckers make their home it the tree since we first moved here.
Over the weekend, our regular errands took priority. I worked on AAFG and Independent Mind this past week. That zig zaggy divider on Independent Mind is still driving me nuts but I found a solution! I have opted this part for now and started working on the "meat" of the design! Once I started this it felt as though a huge weight had been lifted so now I just do at least one line of the divider each time I pick it and it doesn't seem so tedious! I will share a picture once I get a little further along and I give my hands several days of rest. It sat in my basket feeling neglected for awhile and I am hoping to make up for that. I really want a new start but am holding off now because I would love to finish this piece!
Kathy Barrick has shared some sad news on her blog. After I was able to resume my stitching after years, her designs were one of the first "new to me" that I fell in love with!
Saturday was beautiful. Spring was in the air! Clear blue skies and warm temps. Sunday was a different story with dark gray skies and thunder storms all day.
I wanted to share a picture of one of the walls in our living area. This is the back wall and you can you see my stitching light on the wall that hangs over my chair. Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.
