February 2018

Happy Valentine's everyone.  We have spring bulbs popping up in our yard suggesting Spring is on the way! I don't want to get too excited, though.  I recall that we had a bit of snow in February last year, so we might experience more winter weather yet!  It is so nice to have a few more weeks to wear all our fabulous hand knitted accessories.
