yup it snowed here after some glorious days in the 70's !
one thing for sure, wait five minutes in colorado and the weather will change !

i was kinda glad to be snowed in due to the fact i'm still not 100% since having caught the dreaded respiratory infection.
and almost a foot of snow forced me to lay low,
do a few things around the house,
and of course knit.
i finished and am now blocking 2 baby sweaters.....yippie!
and of course more rounds on :" leaves of grass" were worked.
oh and i casted on for sock # 2 in a green color. these should of been done for st.paddie's day but i rarely meet those dead lines.
looking at the pics i put up i should of edited them first, but you get the drift.

yes it has been awhile since my last post.....
...... i was a victim of the dreaded upper respiratory infection
.... .i am still coughing but other wise fully recovered
.......  the girls [ sisters ] came together for a long weekend
..... my sister mary margaret got me spinning again
forgot how relaxing it is to spin kinda like getting into the zen.
...... weather has been warm one day - then snow the next
...... and a fire west of town in the foothills
way too early in the season for fires ;(
.... been knitting a lot
.... machine quilting - even bought a new quilting foot for my bernina.
so you can understand why i have been absent from blogging.
not really much going on
so i have little to say.
i'm sure i will get my thoughts and voice organized in the near future
and be back posting regularly.
oh and it is time to start thinking about the
