Ahh, a little sunshine and warmer temps...

Numbers are relative, aren't they?

As someone who doesn't like cold weather, a high of 36 degrees is nothing to cheer about...unless you haven't seen 36 degrees in a month or two! The thermometer reached 40 in my part of Michigan yesterday. Bill was outside in a sweatshirt jacket. I'm not there yet, but I did have my coat unzipped and no gloves on. That felt almost naughty, almost naked!

Cold weather is moving back in on Wednesday but I will celebrate this brief respite by having my car washed. The salt and grime would leave you wondering about the color of my car. There will be much more snow, salt and grime before the season is over, but today is like a rainbow, a promise of what is to come.

The hint of spring was all the encouragement I needed to get out some Easter crafts that haven't been started yet. This was supposed to be a pillow, but with wired ears, I think it will make a better wall hanging. I stitched this during the Super Bowl game last night and hope to attach it to fabric for a wall hanging tonight. This pattern is called Can I Have This One? Hungry bunnies are hopeful too.
