I don't think it'll be long now............

No I really don't think that it will be that long before Spring has sprung! A scant six days and the month of February will be officially over and March will be here. Two weeks into March and wonderful daylight savings time will begin (March 14). I love daylight savings time! I'm one of those people who get a lot happier once Winter is over. Except for Thanksgiving and Christmas, Winter doesn't really have anything but cold and snow. I know that Spring is just around the corner 'cause if you can believe this we've had flocks of robins this past week and when I got up and looked out the back this morning, there were three bluebirds in the backyard! Now that made me feel all smiley as soon as I saw them. This past week we had three days where the temps were in the high fifties to low sixties, and that my friends is a mere temptation of the things to come! Of course that's after we have another bout of cold and possibly snow. However that is not going to get me down because I know what's right around the corner!

Now for my crocheting WIP's , I've been working for several days on my first baby blankie. Unfortunately, I made a poor choice in patterns, not because the blankie will turn out badly but because the blankie is made up entirely of single crochet! That's a lot of stitches folks and it's in a stripe so there's quite a bit of color changing, back and forth, back and forth because I'm only using two colors.

One other thing I want to say is that I truly appreciate each one of you who ended up at my blog while you were blog hopping in OWOH! I sooo plan on being one of the blog sites entered next year and I've got a whole year to come up with a giftie or two to giveaway. That will make it even more fun than this year, at least for me, maybe. I did a lot of blog hopping of my own and I'm soo tickled to be able to say that I won some prizes! When I receive them I will post pictures along with who's wonderful gifties they came from.

Folks if you're looking for a fantastic giveaway, you need to check out Lila Tueller, of Lila Tueller Designs because she is giving away one of the most beautiful quilts that I've ever seen. She also has prizes for 2nd and 3rd place, prizes of pattern 3 packs!
So stay tuned friends, there's,

I think this Winter has been one of the coldest and has had more snow than there has been in many years. We got a foot of snow about a week and a half ago and the temps dropped into the teens and here we are again with us receiving about 7-8 inches of snow and the temp dropped to 15 degrees this morning. Brrrr!
And now they're talking more snow in a couple of days.

It really makes you wonder what Spring's gonna be like. Are we going to get a lot of rain? Is it going to stay Winter long past when it should have left? I'm certainly glad that I haven't had to get outside or to come into contact with anyone carrying the H1N1 virus! It won't be long before it will be time to start planting seed indoors to get a jump start on the growing season.

Has everyone been participating in the OWOH (One World One Heart) giveaway? Check out my last posting to read all about it. I can tell you this, I've been hopping all around the blogging world and checking out others blogs. The last time I looked there were over 1000 bloggers who have joined into this "Magic Carpet Ride"

What have you  been working on crochet wise? I finished and mailed off two scarves for the WomenHeart project. February is Women's Heart month. I've also been working on the "Inga Bag". I finished the crochet part and now I'm down to lining it and finishing it off. I've also gotten a few squares finished and mailed off to women that I'm in a granny square swap with. Hmm what next? I don't know right now but I have a few thoughts on it.

I hope everyone can stay warm and safe and hopefully I'll be back soon!
