Morning May......

how are you?
This first morning of May here on the Lane is a very wet one.  Lots of rain overnight and some rumbling from the skies as well, but....
everything looks so green and clean and fresh and....wonderful!  

My hostas are flourishing along the woods edge and I've popped a few in to the landscaping and thinking I might add a few more.  We've been working on changing the landscape of the front of the house....I just wasn't happy with what I started with so out it all came and in went the new this past weekend.  I do think the outdoor scape is much like the indoor....when it's new to you it takes a bit of getting to know it all before you start to dress it!  Bit by bit getting there inside and out.

As I'm sure you noticed I also did a bit of changing up on the look of the blog...and if you click on my Etsy page link you'll see it matches...and the PictureTrail does as well.  Hopefully a button here soon that you can click and go directly to the PT page as well...and quite possibly a page here with some offerings from the Lane!

Lots of classes in the works for the next months being worked into the calendar....
Punch Needle, Needle Felting, Wool Applique, English Paper Piecing, Rug Hooking and even a morning of planting a container herb garden!  
Also planning to add another monthly class as our Cellar Stitchers 1 & 2 groups are full and overflowing at times!  
So....if any, or all of this sounds interesting to you and you haven't already put your name on the list, please do so soon ~ 
All day workshops and a possible "retreat" in the future months as well!

I know this type of post is oh so boring but I do have to pop these in here and there so you'll all know of the happenings here on the Lane!

Hoping you all like the new look here.....compliments of 
Amy at
She is talented and sweet and a pleasure to work with...thank you Miss Amy!

Wishing you all a marvelous Monday, first day of May!

From the Lane,


  1. Your page looks very lovely, Sharon. I admire people like you who are always looking for new ways to delight us and inspire us. Rainy here in Midland as well.
