As The Crow Flies


The sun is shining brightly on this brisk March morning. The birds are chirping and the laundry on the line is swaying in the breeze.
There is a vocal character cawing above me. I think she is stating her pleasure with the glorious day...


Projects have been simple knitted cotton bags for Easter gift giving.


Although I must confess I shall reserve a few for stashing my ongoing knitting.


Digging through piles of vintage fabrics, for remnants to make pillows for the front porch.

Alas Spring is on the way... I just hope its on the fast track... ' as the crow flies.'

I just love those knit bags, and there is nothing like pink lace trimmed bed linens. Spring seems to be arriving early here. I'll leave a little whisper on the breeze to remind her to hurry your way.

Take care,
Sallie

Sweet bags and that pillowcase is just lovely. I have a few of them similar that I treasure. Great crow pic too, they sure do let you know what they are thinking at times!

Your knitting is so neat, when I do any it's always so uneven, the little bags are lovely.

I love crows...but then you know that!
