As this Easter season approaches, we enjoy the bright beauty of spring...
And, the whimsy and fun of egg dying and hunting...
And candy... and good food... and gathering with family...
But, most of all let us remember... the Sacrifice... the Love... the Hope and opportunity of Redemption... of Forgiveness...
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessings in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will--to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. And, he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment--to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ." ~ Ephesians 1:3-10
Wishing each of you a joyous Easter filled with the wonder of His Gift.

We've had the tease of spring lately... And, it has had me craving color... Spring color.
This quick, fun little pattern fit the bill AND gave me an opportunity to practice the German Short Row technique I learned while doing the Dreambird! Love 'em!!
This shawl is a nice small size, though plenty long. Perfect for early spring mornings and at the dimming of the day... when the nip is in the air.
It's made of Noro Silk Garden Lite and Brown Sheep's Nature Spun, that I had in my stash. The pattern is Light Waves by Susan Ashcroft. Details here. She also designed my favorite little owl shawl: Hogwart's Express.
It's good to have my computer back (from the Geek Squad) and a new modem! ;)
Wishing a beautiful spring weekend to all... blessings ~ tanna

Last week, the Little Men & Co. were in town for a couple of days! We so enjoyed their visit!
This crew enjoyed lots of fun at the Discovery Place Science Center. The room with the Kinetic experiments is at the top of the list for the Little Men. They LOVED rolling the golf balls down all the different ramps.
My Little Big Man loved this room the very first time he visited it when he was about his brother's age. It has not lost a bit of fascination for him!
Then, I was fortunate enough to get to take Little Lady on her first modeling job for Annie's. Pretty fun to watch four adults and a professional photographer wrangle the styling for their photo shoot.
Later in the week, we made our first visit to Rose Path Weaving (Noni's home away from home). Can't you just tell she loved the Madelinetosh of my friend, Laura's beautiful sweater? She did manage to spit up a little of her prunes from lunch on it. I think she may have been trying to claim it for herself!
My brother, Jeff and his wife, Brenda pulled into town for the weekend. The WHOLE week was just chocked full of sweet visits. You just have to love that! Whew! Now, to catch up!! ;)
