But I thought not having a post for over 3 months was a bit long.
So with Spring comes change, more light, renewal and rebirth.
Here's a brief synopsis of the past 3 months:
Lovely gifts all around during the holidays. I got a great Namaste knitting bag at the time. My daughter received gifts galore, including some wooden trees and bushes that I hand painted and sealed with beeswax. I will put up a post about them soon.
We had a fun Valentine's Day Fondue party at home. Late February, we had snow here in Texas and made a happy snow bunny with apricot eyes and nose.

Late March we did more trail walking and came across morel mushrooms. What a pleasant surprise!
Finding mushrooms made me think of Children of the Forest and how the family gathered and dried them for the winter. It's so important to know which ones you can eat. More about our mushroom hunting on my food blog: Veggiebytes.com
Farmer Carolan has been composting, preparing beds, shoveling soil, hanging supports and sending out his love to our little backyard garden. Here's a pic of all the green "volunteers" about 1 month old after our snowfall in February.

Onto crafting, we particpated in our school's Knit-A-Thon by making some scarves and hats. I knit some wrist warmers for myself and a Noro silk hat for my mom for when she goes to Alaska in the summer. I'm also so happy I had time try out Nicole's felted egg tutorial at Rhythm Of the Home. I got to do it twice: once with my dear daughter and then with ladies from our school's handwork group.
The pics are coming, I promise!
Happy Spring to Everyone!
