Well now.....

I see by my last post that February slipped right by me and here we are at March 1....oh dear!
Not even going to start an explanation, some of you know somewhat how the past month slipped by me and I just don't want to waste another minute on all of it!!
All Good Things coming from the Lane today!

Thanks to all of those who have responded and signed up for March classes.  I sent an email to all of those who requested, if you didn't get one and would like to be in the know....shoot me an email and I'll get you on "the list"!

There are still a few openings in Andrea's Needle Felting class....
come join us and make two of these adorable sheep.  All supplies included and you'll have your tools to take home to create more of whatever your heart desires.
Class is scheduled for Thursday March 16, 11am at The Primitive Willow
If you would like to join us please email me at

A sneak peek at the "Breath of Spring" project....

A runner, stitched with a mix of pennies and more on a linen like prairie cloth backed with a muted calico.  I'm excited to get the finished model done to share and plan to work on it some today.
Only two spaces open for this all day workshop here on the Lane.  Arrival at 9:30 with a welcome coffee cake and coffee, lunch and a departure dessert.  All of this and class time with all you'll need to complete the project!  Email me for more info!

These are on the "to finish" list for today as well.....
wool eggs for Easter decor.  They're almost set to be aged and stuffed.  If I can gather enough of them for an offering at The Primitive Willow Spring Open House you'll find a bowl full there on
March 10 & 11
"Springtime at the Willow"
11-6 both days
Be sure to check the times for sure on the FB page The Primitive Willow.
Kim has rounded up so many nice springtime offerings for you, make sure to stop in and see!
If by chance I don't get enough of the eggs finished up I will be having a small offering sometime soon at

Gosh, think that's all the news for now.....hoping to hear from some of you to fill the few class spaces up.  More coming in April if time allows so stay tuned.

It's a dreary first day of March here in Michigan but I'm going to make it a sunshiny happy one in my heart and mind.....hope you'll do the same!

From the Lane,
