Spring Yarn Along

As you can see from my header picture, I am starting to decorate my house for Easter. I made this little hand towel several years ago from a pattern found in a magazine.

I also set out these Easter eggs. 
There are actually six of them but I couldn't get a good pic of all six. 
They came as white plaster eggs that you painted. They were by Wee Crafts. I don't think they are available anymore. I painted them many years ago when my children were little.

It didn't look much like Spring around here on Monday. I woke up in the morning to rain, followed by sleet and then snow.
The picture was taken through the screen on my back door. I couldn't believe how quickly our deck was coated. No, my pool has not yet been opened. The weather this winter shredded our pool cover. 

My crocheting is somewhat slow. I am still working on my infinity scarf
 I have only managed to finish another 15 rows in the past week. Very frustrating because crochet has always been a quick craft for me. 

I have also been working on this Little House Needleworks cross-stitch.
I hope to finish this in the next week.

My reading is still The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. This too is going slow because there are times when I really don't like Dolly, one of the main characters. I then put the book down and am reluctant to pick it up again. I want to finish this book, but I think it is going to take some time.

Joining Ginny's Yarn Along again this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what others are up to.

Thanks for stopping by!

It's finally feeling like Spring up here in RI - a far cry from the weekend, that's for sure. I wonder if this weather has us crafting slower. My socks are taking as long as your scarf!

I love your cross-stitch project. My mom would always work on cross-stitch when I was little so I have a huge appreciation for the craft. So time consuming!
