Out in the country where I live, there are no tulips yet. There are a few light yellow-almost cream-daffodils that are hanging on for dear life against the Spring winds. But in the city the tulips are definitely ready for Spring.

These beauties are blooming right outside my office in a somewhat protected area. I'm not sure what I like more-the various shades of green or the pinky tulips. Anyway, they make me smile when I walk in the front door.

At home the work continues to bring some sanity to my work room. Jeanne has passed over to me about 4 boxes of fabric that she was holding at her house. I spent Sunday looking at every piece, ironing some, and stacking them up correctly before they went in the appropriate space. Yeah, I know I have a bit of a control problem where fabric is involved.

I also found 5 projects that are in various stages of being finished. Those were all nicely labeled and grouped together with everything I could think of that was needed to finish them. (Plus I put a date on the label.) We'll see how long it takes to get them finished now!

My lighthouse loving buddy Lori made me a beautiful pendant necklace while we were enjoying a snowstorm in Door County. For those of you familiar with Wisconsin, you'll know that Door County is a peninsula with a flock of lighthouses along its coastlines. (I decided that a group of lighthouses was a flock-who knew?)

Isn't it lovely? And she made it for ME!
