warmer weather!! hooray!!!

The weatherman... weatherperson... weatherwoman....  which ever says that will will be getting warmer this weekend. Tomorrow will be in the 50's and by Monday we will hit 70!!  I am really looking forward to warmer weather!!

I posted this little bear on BearPile this morning...
I named him Surprise since no one expects to "crack open" an Easter egg and find a tiny bear.  The egg was needle felted from wool roving and has blanket stitching along the opening and a few polymer resin "jelly beans".
Surprise is headed off to Colorado !
