I think spring is finally springing!!

Hi all hope you are gearing up for the weekend, or gearing down, whichever the case may be.  Me, well, I'll be working all weekend, but that's OK because I think spring is finally here!!  We have had one of the most drab stretches I can remember...lots of rain, gray skies, even some snow...but we are finally sunny and in the 60's.  Wooohooo!!  Just to give you an idea of what we've seen, here are two pictures taken out our back window.  The first one is date stamped 3/11/2011 and the second was taken today. 
That's Ohio for you!!

To continue the spring-y love, here are the two latest blocks I've completed for the crochet a-long on Ravelry.  This is one of the two colorways I've chosen, but I think this one is my favorite.  And it goes along well with the springtime feel of the day.


With those done, I've caught up on my knitting and crochet for the month so I am going to make a conscious effort to work on my quilts.  I have a row by row challenge that I am woefully behind on, so that is my first goal.  Then I have fabric for a dragon quilt for my fiancee that is goal number two, so I hope to have pictures of those soon.

Just a quick update on my car problems.  I had my check engine light come on the other day, I tightened the gas cap and it went off.  Then it came back on then went off again.  Weird.  Took it to the mechanic yesterday and even though the light was off the computer threw a code for a problem anyway.  Double weird.  So I am facing a relatively minor repair, but it could be a lot worse so I can't really complain. 

Well, I am off to enjoy the weather before I head into work. I was just so excited I had to share (well that and I really want to try to be a more consistent blogger so I wanted to work on that too :cD)  Hope you all have a great day.  Warmest wishes!!
