I weeded my entire back garden and planted 4 new rose bushes as my kickoff to spring. I even worked on some projects around the house that have sat on my "to-do" list for over a year now. Painting the back steps, painting the bathroom ceiling and de-cluttering like a mad woman. What a glorious time that ended all too soon. Monday we awoke to rain falling by the bucketloads. I am so ready for spring. So very ready. We have yet to experience our first pink-footed tea party in the garden this year. And just as soon as we have another nice day with dry grass, we will have our traditional pink-footed garden tea party.
So, in a few weeks I will have a yard sale to get rid of tons of stuff. Whether we will move this year or not remains to be seen, but this stuff has got to go. I believe I have some sort of addiction to de-cluttering. I don't know what it is. I just love getting rid of stuff.
I have not spent much time crafting since James arrived home. Its just been so nice to have him around that I sit by his side not doing anything at all. Just enjoying his presence. What a lovely time we've had. But this lack of crafting is about to change. I can't stay away for too long from my hobbies without going just a little bit crazy.
I tried to get out some sandals I designed last spring to finish up. For some reason the pattern is not working up like it did last year. I can't get it right. I may have missed typing something so I need to devote some time to figure that out.
I also re-opened my Etsy shop this week. I will be adding things to it daily or as often as possible. I hope to be able to crochet a few items for it this spring. We shall see how long my wrists can hold up.
Well, just wanted to drop you all a line and let you know how things are going here. I will try to get some crafting pictures to show you all later today and possibly share some new purchases I made this week. We will have to see. The spring fever bug has definitely bit and I am just a teensy bit antsy to be outside.
