Hibernation is OVER!

What a blue funk I have been in this winter!   Forget the daylight savings time thing . . . let's just shorten winter!  I may have been hibernating but, I was not unproductive.  I've been a crocheting fool!!!

 I've made dish cloths . . . dozens!  ("Sandy Shore Washcloth Set" on the  Lion Brand website - free)
Scarves (they really look better than this in person) . . . pretty much made-up designs.

Things for my someday "grandchildren hope chest". . The Owl Granny square was adapted from:  http://www.petalstopicots.com/2012/08/guest-post-repeat-crafter-me-owl-granny.html
And for the Pond Friends Stacking Toy:  http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90075AD.html

I've also made some cards from some downloaded clip-art (all found on Pinterest) to wind my vintage lace around . . . much easier to see and choose with them out of the brown paper bag they've been in.
I've also been working on organizing my craft room . . . I mean studio.  It's not quite picture worthy yet but, it's getting there.  

I played interior decorator and painted the master bath a slightly purple shade of gray, found the perfect bath mats, used some pottery accessories I've had for years that have been packed away . . . for years.  It turned out so nice!
I have three designs ALMOST ready . . . two for spring . . . hope to have them ready by next week.

Spring begins tomorrow!!!!  Here in northeastern Tennessee the daffodils are blooming, the forsythia have just burst and the early blooming trees are showing the first signs of color . . . THANK YOU GOD!!!!
