I. Love. Spring.
We've lived in our home for about 10 months now. My hubby has been outdoors working every chance he can get. We had a hedge of yellow bells (forsythia) that a former owner had planted along the front fence near the road- a privacy fence I guess.
Hubby has been busy getting those out of the ground. Do you know how hard it is to kill a forsythia bush? Almost impossible. But he is a determined fella.
I'm finally getting to where I'm enjoying my new home. I know that sounds odd but after living in one place for 28 yrs, it's hard to get used to another. And last yr, on thru the winter was a tough one for me, But I've pushed thru and now with the warmer temps and the warm sunshine, I think I'm going to make it.
One room in my house that I've fallen in love with is the bedroom. We finally, after all these yrs, have a matching bedroom suit!
I don't have any pictures up on the wall yet but I have some of my favorite things in there.
This is what I'm making to recover the pillow. I'm not sure it's going to be big enough. I'm thinking I may make it bigger by adding a linen sashing around it and for the back. I have a piece or two of old linens that has 'issues'-spots, holes, etc. I may repurpose one of those.

I've been working off and on on this piece for over a year. I'm using size 30 cotton and size 11 steel crochet hook!
I love doing this type of crochet. I'm half way thru on it. I try to do one row each night.
Well, time to get busy doing some housework.
