signs of spring

Can it really be spring?? First a raging thunderstorm Sunday night, then these little guys poking up their heads. The daylily shoots are coming up and I really need to dig and divide them while the ground is wet. But no time to do it. I took a walk this morning for the first time in about 6 months and plan to ease back into that morning routine, now that the weather is bearable. This afternoon I sent out my quilt, Whose Woods, to Teri Springer. Teri generously contributed $1600 to the American Cancer Society and in return, is the new owner of my piece. I'm thrilled to have helped make this last fund-raiser a success. Finally almost finished packing my supplies for Thursday's trip and tomorrow I have to go to the studio for a little while, then finish my Passover shopping before I leave because I have 2 days to cook when I get back and we will be 22 people: a record! Our 9 grandchildren will have to have their own table. Yipes! But that's next week. This week I'll be spending two days at the Guilford (CT) Art Center with Sisters in Cloth -- Diane Wright, Vivika deNegre, Ruth Anne Olson and a host of other talented artists. I taught there a few years ago and am so happy to be returning! But I need my beauty sleep, so goodnight for now.

I have crocuses blooming and daffodils just opening their pretty heads, too. Yesterday was a great day for a walk.
I look forward to seeing you again, and to the classes this weekend. I found my old silk screens. Hurrah!

2 days of cooking... I remember those days! Lately, I have been invited guest and only help out... what I don't have to do is the cleanup!
Enjoy your class and we will see if you can fit me in... I may have to volunteer to help you cook, LOL.

Here in Arizona, spring arrives with the appearance of new pads on the cacti.
