Daffodils for Marty

Marty asked if I would post a picture of the daffodils when they opened, so Marty, these are for you!



Also....I'd love to spread the word that my friend Judy, who visits my blog often (and who has become a true pal) is starting up her blog again...she is a long time professional needlepoint designer, paints custom canvases, and is resuming her writing career for a national needlepoint magazine after a too-long hiatus.
Well, she has fallen for crazy quilts (join the club!) and is exploring translating the CQ idiom into needlepoint. There are so many fibers and stitches available to needlepointers today, I think it is a very good fit. Be sure and scroll down when you go to her blog and see the amazing Christmas stocking she did for "Marie"....it is a good example of how she is thinking about this.
Welcome back, Judy, to the needlework-besotted bloggosphere!

And so I bid you all "Adios"...I am off to Mexico with my DH for a week, starting tomorrow very early. We are going to a primitive eco-groovy un-resort on a beach south of Zijuatenejo...
I wish you all happy stitching while I'm gone!

Thanks for introducing us to Judy! It's going to be a pleasure watching how this evolves.

Have a great trip!

Have a wonderful trip! I love the forsythia...I remember that from our yard in Ohio (centuries ago), it was always the first sign of spring. I don't think forsythia grows here.

It's such a relief, after a long white winter, to see happy warm yellows of spring. Too bad the pictures can't send the bring the scent of spring to the viewers too!
