It's May, It's Sunny, It's Spring

No, I didn't just wake up, although I do feel as if I am waking up from a fog.

My father-in-law passed away on April 11. We were up at the Soldiers Home with him for a week. Then a quiet Easter. Why does that seem like it was weeks away . . . ?

But here are a couple of new things I have posted. They are very loosely woven, airy, and comfortable!

Ahhh. I feel better now that I've blogged. More weaving and gardening today. And playing guitar!
