Spring has finally sprung.  But as warm as the temperatures are today, I'm hoping we don't go straight into summer weather.  All the windows are open, fresh air is being circulated throughout the house and it feels wonderful to finally be able to do that. 

And speaking of spring, spring classes are underway.  Met with a group of ladies yesterday to make muffin tin pincushions.  They had a good time choosing designs to stitch on their pincushions.  Each one was so different from the next. 
Everyone was so intent on their projects they didn't even realize I was taking pictures. 

Darlene dove right into the wool scrap pile, looking for the perfect pieces of wool for her applique pieces.  What a treasure trove that is!
While the ladies were busy creating their pincushions, Evette and Laura worked at another table on a different project.  Laura is looking a little confused!

The dawning of another day......beautiful, sunny, very warm, perfect for making baby chicks.  A group of ladies met at my house on Saturday and got busy stitching up chicks.  The goal was to get three done, but one would be wonderful!!  Sometimes we just overshoot our goals, so strive big and accept what you get.
Pam was really concentrating on the sewing machine.  The chick proved to be a bit challenging when attaching the gusset.  Everyone managed to get it done, but there were some bugs to be worked out here and there.  But all in all, I think everyone did a great job and left with no leaky chicks!!
Barbara is intent on getting that huge pile of stuffing in her little chick.  She knows I'll tell her to add more so she's going to town with the stuffing.
Donna is in the witness protection program, so we'll only be viewing her partially done chick!!!  I love the plaid wool she chose.  This wool came from an old Pendelton shirt I cut up.  Perfect in it's new life as a chick.
Debby, Pam and Elizabeth are just so busy.  This was a fun class but a very concentrating group of ladies.  They were determined to get those chicks completed to put in their Easter baskets.
Whoo-hoo.....Debby finished one chick.  Adorable!
Aren't they sweet! 
Oh look, Elizabeth is in the witness protection program too.  She sure has a darling chick. 

I was feeling better last week from my six week bout with bronchitis, still coughing some, but feeling much better.  And then last night I started feeling yucky again, cold symptoms, and today it was full blown runny nose, coughing, sneezing again.  So now I don't know if it's a cold or possibly allergies.  I have a doctor's appointment Monday morning with an allergist, so we'll see what he has to say.  I just apologize to everyone in my classes for being such a sick person the past weeks.  Hopefully the warm air and sunshine will help get rid of all the sniffles!! 

Have a great rest of the weekend.  One more class tomorrow.......
