Miscellaneous Sunday Stuff ~

Today we hit the 50* mark so decided to take Ernestine for a walk to Lake Erie.  (I live just 2 blocks away.)  The wind coming off the lake was quite chilly, but it felt good to walk outside.  I was quite surprised to see the trees near the shore covered in ice.  I bet some of the ice was 15' above the water.  The winds coming off the lake can be ferocious.  I've heard of homes on the lake being covered in ice with a fish or two frozen to the house.

My first daffodil of the year :)  A favorite flower of mine.  I don't seem to have many buds this year.

After finishing DSO's scrappy rug, did not have anything ready for the frame.  I have a small mat to hook for our guild's hook in, one to hook for another guild's challenge and then a small one to hook for Christmas in July but nothing is quite ready to work on.  I needed something  to hook so found a small piece of linen that was zigzagged and drew up a little scrappy mat to work on.  Decided to round the corners and am changing the lines as I work around.  It's only about 12" square.

I haven't heard from Enchilada's new mom and dad.  I'm hoping no news is good news.  Here's a couple pictures of sweet Ernestine.  I know she's doing a happy dance since Enchilada is no longer around.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Sweet little pup...what a face! I just bought a large Gerber Daisy, hydrangea and lavender for my door garden. The flowers at the garden center were glorious, as was the weather. But, just as you get tired of the cold, soon enough, we will be tired of the heat. But spring in the south is my favorite. We might not have much in the way of fall, but spring is divine! Love the scrappy project!
Have a good week,

Two blocks from the lake? How nice. Hope the wind isn't strong enough to fish slap your house.

It looks cold on that lake. The daffodil looks really beautiful, too bad there isn't many buds yet but it's still early.
Your little scrappy rug is beautiful. Ernestine looks like she's the boss again, doing the happy dance, no doubt.
Enjoy your Spring week.
Hugs, Julia

I am 45 minutes south of you and my daffodils aren't even thru the ground yet.

Love the scrappy mat.

The ice on the lakeside looks beautiful. Ours melts the minute the temps go up. Love that design, would make nice chair pads.

Your scrappy mat is very fun. Maybe a chair pad ?
