So that old March saying has rang true for us. Rain and fifty degree days are MOST welcome!

Yes, this is how our week is going!
My hubby was seen by the doctor yesterday and is on multiple meds and an inhaler. He has stayed in bed for days.... that is so not like him. James and I are coughing in jags. No time for this!
This little remedy sounds more delightful than the stuff I'm taking! Gag. And the chicken soup is gone... I will make another batch today.
I have not slept well since the show from the coughing. My grandmother's old kitty is sick and in the last stages of kidney failure. She is my constant companion now, and I am frightening her with the cough.
Both vehicles are still packed. Oh well, at least it's sunny and the days are longer. I am cleaning and organizing with rest breaks in between.
And a bit of wool dying too.... I have the most awful dark purple shaggy mohair coat that I'm trying to work with. If only I was making eggplants.... yesterday I came upon a sweet tutorial by my friend Emily.... http://www.primpolkadots.com/2015/03/11/how-to-faux-rust-ceramic-chalkware/
so I have dragged out all the bunnies and lambs that I didn't finish for the show.... If only they come out as nice as hers!
And the sink is full of sheep's wool, for doll hair. Small batches at a time, with pantene moisturizing shampoo for the final cleaning.
The snow is melting away. The weatherman said the rest of March will not be great, but it's March and the end is in sight!
Well off the computer to check on that wool.... boy I hope it is a different color!!!

How wonderful to have the sunshine and warmer weather. This winter was a hardship for us, but the snow is melting away day by day. Today might make it to 50 degrees. We are all sick, with some kind of horrible cough. Matt went to the doctor this am so I will see what they say about him...
I think the snowpack means good things are ahead for us in the garden. It's time for Matt to start the plants from seed... at least what I won't be able to find elsewhere, like the okra for my dolly necklaces and the peppers for my salsa... I am worried about the ticks and lyme disease. It's been a recurring thing for us. I wish my town would make a decision on backyard chickens as that would help.
I have to get into my craft room today, before I hurt myself crawling over stuff. It has never been that bad.... I have very little left over from the last show, and have to start the goods for Walker Homestead in June. I am going to try to write some of these patterns I've promised for so long.
This was a cute little find from pinterest this morning.... I love pinterest!
Enjoy your Day!

A quick share for the morning.....
I print these on muslin, and stitch them up into flat eggs.
Once stitched and stuffed I age them and throw them in a basket for my shows.
You may use the file as you wish provided you grant me design credit.
Enjoy your day.

What an amazing, amazing show!!!!! And... we are home, and it's still light out!!!!! Yippee for spring ahead, however we are too tired to enjoy it tonight. Matthew is already taking a nap!
I think I was not meant to take photos this weekend..... Ipad pictures were horrible, and these are a few from the camera that came out okay.... Not the best representation, but I always try to get enough snaps to critique for the following year.
I think a corner space gives more merchandising room, but next year I want a bigger booth!
closeup of the onion crates.... I love how they show off my work.

Almost ready! and what a time for hubby to get sick!
We have been packing totes and planning the booth.
One vehicle is packed, and we need to finish the other before the snow flies.
I have a few more things to possibly finish up for the show.... if not, they will go to my etsy shop when time permits. Stress mode is over, thankfully.
