The lilac is showing signs of life.

This is an attic find.
It is one of at least half a dozen unfinished embroidery projects.
I'm not sure exactly who started these.
It could have been my mother-in-law or it could have been her mother.
This linen towel is almost done so I will probably finish it,
but I struggle with this frequently.
I vacillate between feeling obligated to finish others' projects
and telling myself I should not feel obligated to do so.

Mama Robin has been busy for the last few days.
She has built a very sturdy nest that withstood some very strong winds last night.
Today she was doing some serious interior work.
I look forward to seeing eggs here soon.

GB#1 has in-person school and needs a clean mask each day of the week.
This is such a comfortable style that Little E requested a few for GB#1.
A new group of small sized masks will be going out in the mail on Monday.
Edit: Here is the link for the pattern for this mask.
It comes in six sizes which can be downloaded all on one sheet or each individually.
The instructions are in the video in the post.
I extended the sides about 1/2" so I could make a casing on each side
which would accommodate my t-shirt ties.
They are super easy to make, never slips off my nose
and make it easy to talk while wearing.

Yesterday was happy mail day.
I received this beautiful calendar and cookbook
with the sweetest note on the postcard.
If you don't know about Farm-ily,
go check out her blog or find her on Instagram.
Her photographs are beyond beautiful.
Thank you, Lynda.

It has rained recently
and the house at the end of our street has a drainage issue
that creates a very nice spot for the ducks.
I'm sure I have posted this pair before.
Today they appeared to be very hungry and a little camera shy.

Now that I have finished my green socks and my trio of kitchen items,
I have been spending some time on my long, slow knit.
It now measures 29 inches as I have been taking it in the car
and knitting on it in the evenings.
I love watching the color combinations as they develop
from the two different balls of yarn.
It may get set aside again soon though
as I am really wanting to start a pair of socks
with some beautiful yarn I received for Christmas.

I bought one of my favorite dish scrubbies at a craft fair.
It finally found its way into the garbage disposal
and I need to make a replacement.
It has an interesting color pattern and a flower shape.
To help me make the new one,
I have made a chart and made some notes that I hope will be helpful.
Now to clear off the cutting surface so I can cut my netting.

The weather was beautiful today so Fireball and I spent some time on the deck
enjoying the warmer temperatures and the critter activity.
This little guy was also enjoying the afternoon sunshine
and the emerging buds on the trees.

I finished my cute little crocheted pouch.
I've put some earbuds in there for you to get an idea of size.
I can see using it also for a little cash or a snack to throw in my purse.
Now that I finally, more or less, memorized the pattern,
I think I'll make a few more.

We got to visit Fireball's mom today.
We were so relieved to finally be able to visit her.
Fireball last saw her in person in September of 2020.
I last saw her in person in December of 2019.
More Curiously has a quick post with both of Fireball's parents.

I am planning on participating in a quilt along.
Last week's assignment was to select fabrics.
I did that today.
I always struggle with what color scheme to choose for a new project.
So many possibilities.
These fabrics were collected many years ago for another project
that I never got around to making.
I think they will look lovely in the new project.
