I think Spring is finally here!

Now I am sure that Spring is here. A little hummingbird wouldn't lie would he? I took a chance and put the feeder out a couple of days ago and look who turned up. It was so good to see them again. This one flitted back and forth most of the day getting a drink. There is not so much in the garden right now to feed hungry hummingbirds so I will be keeping the feeder well stocked. I have been heating up the sewing machine like crazy these last few days. My daughter is having her very own Craft Fair at the beginning of May. Vendors are already lined up, the hall is rented and even catering is taken care of. My part is to sew like crazy so as I can fill a table with lovely things. I have been making these little purses...... I have even made some clutches...
...and here's the inside.
It has been fun coming up with new ideas but I still have a ton of stuff to make.

I am still waiting for my soap making supplies to arrive. I think everything should be here tomorrow. Maybe this weekend I can finally get started, I can hardly wait. One of these days there will be my very first bar of handmade soap to blog about... I just hope it's a post about my great success and not about my goof up!

Love that clutch. I hope you get to try soap making this weekend. I've never done it, but it sounds interesting.

I guess I'll get my hummingbird feeder out tomorrow. It's time for those little rascals to start coming around.

Always everything is so cute. I love the pic of the hummer. I guess I should get mine out and put it up. My friend said she has them going to her house too.

What beautiful creations! I hope your daughter's craft fair goes well. I wonder if we could get hummingbirds here if we put out a feeder? Do you know where we could find that information? I'm so wildlife illiterate!

I agree a little hummingbird as sweet as that wouldn't lie! I wish we were rolling on into spring instead of winter!
