On the needles

Linking up with Ginny for my first ever Yarn Along!  I am about two thirds done with my mom's requested kitchen towel.  It has been a bit slow going...I just haven't been able to muster up the motivation to work on it for more than a few rows at a time, but I am determined to have it finished by the time we visit over Easter weekend!

 ravelry notes here
I wish I could say that I was reading something interesting, but I find it so hard to squeeze in time to read anything for me unless it is a parenting book.  So instead, I am sharing some of our spring book favorites we have been reading for the past few weeks.

The Sun Egg by Elsa Beskow
Vegetable Soup by Jeanne Modesitt
My Spring Robin by Anne Rockwell
Bunny My Honey by Anita Jeram
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes by DuBose Heyward
Hooray for Spring by Kazuo Iwamura
How Robin Saved Spring by Debbie Ouellet
Spring's Sprung by Lynn Plourde
Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey

  4. What a cheerful color! I love your other blog posts, too. We are newish Waldorf homeschoolers and I am so encouraged by your writing. Thank you :-) Where in NC are you? My husband and I grew up in the Raleigh area. Our families are still back in NC although scattered from the mountains to the coast. His job has brought us to rural Montana these past 18 months. Its a different world out here, lol.

    1. Aww, thank you Kim! We are in the Charlotte area and have been for almost 5 years now. My sister lived in Wyoming for a bit and yes, it is very different out there!
