winter morning
oh spring!! Where art thou o spring??
Only three weeks to go... I just wonder how much more snow we might get between now and then.
friday we had quite a little storm, It took me 50 minutes at 30 miles an hour to get to work. It usually only takes me 20 minutes. I am feeling quite tired of the snow.
Though, I do have to admit it really was pretty this morning when I got up. We had gotten about 6 to 8 new inches over night. I am really looking forward to the season to change! but I also have to admit, that I dislike the very early stages of spring.. when everything is muddy and ugly.
yellow chick
I did manage to get a few needle felted chicks on pinkeeps finished over the weekend. I wish I could get some good pictures of them, but I could not! I must have taken about 50 shots.. I can not capture their cuteness for the life of me!!
pink chick
My favorite is this little blue one below. Or, i dont know.. maybe the pink is my fav. next on my list will be lambie pies!

I think you captured the cuteness very well. That chick is one of the cutest things I have ever seen! And Tory is just the cutest little boy! I can see why you don't want to give him up!

Jane said...

Oh, Viv, those chicks are just gorgeous! Love 'em all - and their little bunny pals too! Can hardly wait to see your little lambie pies! Your Torry-Pie is so precious!
In spite of the snowy scene outside, it looks like Spring inside with all your beautiful colors - makes me want to make something too.

Those little chicks are so cute, I'm really loving the one in Turquoise! And that Torry, what a cutie! We've actually had a bit of early spring the last few days. It was actually 80 here today. What a wonderful promise of Spring to come.

Those chickies are adorable, but Torry is the cutest! It's so wonderful that you live nearby and can see him so often. It's so much fun when babies start to smile!

Torry is growing, isn't he? I think this age is the best, they are so smiley and snuggly. Your chicks are precious. I always love to see your needle felted projects.
Have a good week - in spite of the snow!

Yes, everything looks beautiful when it's covered in snow, but enough already, right?! I love all of your springy creations. They're very cute, but they don't compare to that sweet little Torry. I wouldn't want to share him either!

Oh Viv .. you need to move to Texas (until July anyway!) We had the most beautiful weekend. Got lots of chores done and just soaked it all in!!

Tory is precious!!

I think I will comment in order of VIP:) Adorable Torry! :) Look at the smile and those eyes... well, no work would get done if he were around everyday!

Your pincushions are very very cute!

I keep looking at the trees, thus avoiding mud and stuff. The buds come so quickly that one could miss them.

One Christmas break i drove home with only a few, and i mean a few cars on the HWY. that was a normal 2 1/2 hour trip but it took me 5 1/2 hrs.

full of bliss said...

Eeep! Eeep! Those little chicky peeps are soooo darling! I love their little Easter bonnets. And what a little cutie pie that Torry is!

Wow you've been a busy girl. Gosh I wish I could stay on top of all these wonderful post. Wouldn't it be great if my thoughts could be typed while I'm looking at all this sweet stuff. I'd get so much more done that way. Get busy coming up with that kind of technology, would you. I guess that could be a little dangerous too.

Those chicks are the cutest things!!! When I think of you I think how full of love your house must be. All those loving pets, a wonderful grandbaby, and course your kids. No wonder you can create such beautiful pieces.

That precious Torry is pumpkin pie cute, he's cotton pickin cute too! I couldn't resist.

OX'...T :)
