I don't know if this is really the right thing to start with or not, especially for those who are still shivering away in the frozen northern regions right now. But I know spring really is on it's way, because it's arrived already this far south. Here's proof.
We've had a bumper crop of tomatoes growing in our patio pots this season. Winter days are numbered when it's time to ripen them on an open window sill. So please hang in there, the warmer breezes really are making their way across the Florida-Georgia state line and will be there for you soon enough!
And speaking of counting the days, they're also getting numbered at long last for Miss Ann Grimshaw.
I do wish I had more time to work on her because the end is starting to feel like it's touchable now, Even though these big numbers seemed simple enough, for some reason (bleary eyesight too late in the evening!) I had a hard time keeping them all lined up on the same linen thread. This straight-forward looking # 4 had to be restitched 3 different times. Ggrrrrr.....
Ann's name still needs to go in and that's over one, but I'll get frustrated over that when it's the right time for it. I would love to think the next post you see from me is a finish for Miss Ann, but even just saying that out loud probably diminished the chances of it. So I'll just know that her days continue to dwindle, I'll keep things posted.
Hope your days are sunny and bright!
