Simple Pleasures

Hi All,

It’s been a strange springtime.  The weather in Southern Arizona has kept me guessing on how to dress each morning.  I start out in jeans and long sleeves and by noon, it’s still jeans, but short sleeves.  This morning, I pulled on my shorts and it finally felt good.

So, what has been happening at My Yellow Swing?  I set up my antique pin loom with some scrap yarn.  I am pleased with the final product.  It will make nice placemats or small throw pillows.  Thanks, Kay.
