Is Winter Over Yet?

This little guy has had just about enough.
Fortunately, the last several days have been quite springlike, by Maine standards anyway.
Davis went to a flea market without me last Saturday because I had to work (the injustice!). Luckily he knows how much I like penguins, so he brought me home a new friend.
I've been begging for a penguin of my very own ever since seeing this video, and I'm guessing Davis thought a porcelain one who can shake salt out of his head might be a better idea than getting a real one. I don't agree, but I'm happy with this guy for now.
The chilly winterland in the photo is actually made up of toasty warm wool roving.
I was doing some needle-felting the other day, and realized I needed some new colors. Fortunately I had a couple balls of natural-colored roving and several packets of Kool-aid on hand (I promise I only use it for dying and don't drink the stuff!).

A couple fuit-scented hours later:

Love the wool colors! How very springy.I was getting so used to this week's spring like temp's, the rain and fog eating away at the dirty snow. I was totally getting ready for spring, but that storm heading our way tonight is bumming me out. oh, for spring, green grass and daffodils!have a great weekend,

You have read Mr. Poppers Penguins I trust? One of my all time favorites.

That roving looks good enough to eat! I love cotton candy, and it's quite evocative.
