A Colorful Easter!

Happy Easter Friends!  I am wishing I had a camera with a powerful lens instead of just my little iPad, because I have a yard full of colorful, but somewhat shy, visitors. Much to my surprise I am entertaining 3 male painted buntings and 4 indigo buntings among my usual bunch of woodpeckers, cardinals, titmice, wrens, Carolina thrashers, chickadees, house finches, blue jays and doves.  And another fly-in...a blue grosbeak popped in to check out the party. And the bluebirds appear to finally be nesting. And a pair of catbirds is back!  It's like Cirque de Soleil out there!!  The buntings are just the brightest parrots!

Yesterday I started a baby sweater for a coworker's daughter who just learned she will be having a boy this fall.  Last Sunday I started a cotton vest for myself:
Haven't done any stitching to speak of but did crochet a dozen cotton starfish wash clothes for favors.  It's been a super busy month, what with answering a summons for federal jury duty (not selected), long hours at work, recuperating from a nasty dog bite to the face, and lots of April birthdays, including my own.  Here are some treasured gifts from friends:
Knitting mouse!
Fiberphile Cashmere!

Lucci Olivia - luxurious!
Even with 3 days of no sunshine and lots of rain it is a wonderful Easter day...for what it represents to Christians, and to celebrate friendships and families.  I will leave you with a darling Assisi style bunny stitched by a friend in my guild:

Thanks for stopping by!
