Spring Has Finally Sprung

I'm happy to report that all the snow melted yesterday and we have Spring back again at last! I've been rather busy this month, and just haven't had a lot of energy for working on my projects. I am making the supreme sacrifice (yes, this is killing me) of cutting my cookbook collection in half. We're talking better than 400 cookbooks, cut to less than 200. This is a big ouch for me, but my space just doesn't accomodate all that I bought. It's Ebay and Half-Price Book's fault. I need all my books to fit into 2 bookshelves, and it just isn't there yet. So, that's what I've been doing. I'm not sure if we (Mom and I) will have a garage sale or if I will just load all the books up and let my sister and her DIL sell them at their garage sale. I have until June to decide that.

Today I'm working a little on finishing up some blocks. I want to get the strips done and pinned before putting away because this will be a quilt-as-you-go-strip project or it won't get done for a year. I'm also making some progress on that Banff Sweater. I've finished the area where I can just plain knit-in-the-round, but now I have to differentiate between front and back for the raglan part. This is going slowly because the kittens are not good at staying in your lap while knitting and Polly (yes, that is the Potsticker's name!) loves to run away with yarn balls.

Wow - even 200 is a lot of cookbooks for me!

I vote to the garage sale fro the cook books. Finding a good cook book a a garage sale is a good find.

And how about posting the sweater pattern and picture. I would be interested in seeing it.

God Bles.
