Spring things...

Now that the early garden crops are in the cold frame I know that spring is near. I have put in baby spinach, various lettuces, and arugula. Now we wait for the tiny little sprouts to sprout. Another sign of spring. Today I will spin for most of the day! I started at 6:30 this morning. I should get a number of skeins done if all goes as plans. A huge shipment is due this week of various colored alpaca roving so I need to settle in and concentrate on spinning Of course the yarns will be up on Estsy in my shop once they are all washed and set! So here I go off to spin some more. No more breaks today.(well maybe)

This weekend my friend and I took a class for Psanky Eggs. The black egg in the nest is my first Psanky egg that I have done! It's a real egg blown out and then the Psanky technique is applied. It was a blast. The eggs in the wooden bowl are my collection of hand painted wooden eggs. The nests my collection also! Notice the horse tail hair in the tiny, maybe humming bird nest? And the wool in the front nest. i put wool out each spring in an old suet holder for the birds to pull from for their nest. Then to my surprise when a nest blows from the trees, there is my wool! I also save some brushing from the horses tail and stuff that in with the wool. The birds love it!! Always pulling from it after a meal at the feeder! So anyway, when my wood eggs come out this usually means spring is around the corner. So hand in there I hear spring weather will grace us this week!
