Gentle Friends, first thing I wanted to say is that I'll be posting the winner of the Gift-a-way in the morning. We had some technical difficulties over the weekend which has made me a day late, so sorry.
We have been having such lovely weather this past month, you wouldn't even know it was January. The days are bright and sunny, no rain and with the highs in the mid 70's all over the Bay area, it has tricked the flowers and trees to start budding out like it was Spring!
... I was walking in the Haight on Saturday and was knocked over with all the flowering trees, it's every where, even on our hill in Noe Valley, our sour cherry tree over the pool area has started popping out buds, and it's the latest blooming thing you ever saw!! What I am thinking is we will eventually get some very cold weather at some point and it will be bad, damaging all these trees. It will also damage the fruit crops and the fruit industry in the Joaquin Valley - the extra warm weather lately - coupled with the very dry winter will push fruit prices sky high this Spring and Summer......
I got a little stitching done this weekend and worked exclusively on my Colonial Gathering piece....
... it's a fun piece and I'll have it done in a day or two and then it will be on it's way to be finished up into a little pocket.
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
