This week is Spring Break for my kiddos, and both are now home. The weeks seem to be flying by; it seems they just went back after Christmas and now they are home, with only 6 weeks of classes to go before final exams! Doesn't seem possible! I am restless and anxious for warm weather, wishing I too was enjoying southerly climes. So many friends are down south right now: Sandi, Willa, Carole, Dawn and Diane all in Florida, Gail and LaVerne in the Carolinas, Cathy in Mexico, Sue and Donna in Arizona, Gail in Hawaii, Marilyn off to Barbados, Judy just back from a Caribbean cruise and Susan soon packing her bags for a Hawaiian cruise.. I am envious for sure. But spring will soon be here, and I will have saved all those travel costs to spend on new plants for the garden..hahaI am busily working on a piece of Raised Embroidery, Elizabethan style, on cream colored silk. Tomorrow night is Embroiderers' Guild and I have hardly touched this piece since we began it at last month's meeting, so I'm trying to get a little more done before tomorrow night. If I make significant headway I'll show you a "progress photo" in a few days... it doesn't really look like much yet as I'm still working with just greens- leaves and stems... looking at these delicate little flowers, many stitched with one strand of floss, makes me even more anxious for spring... Guess I'll have to content myself with this piece of work, until I can get out and dig in the dirt...
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
