New to me

My day is always made a tad bit more cheerful when I get a box of new threads. Yesterday I had a box arrive just before we were susposed to head over to the library. Marv just shook his head and asked me to let me know when I would be through fondling my new acquisitions so we could go get new reading material. He was smiling though as he watched me. He does know me so well.
We did finally make it to the library.
Tempting, tempting, tempting :)
This is a new thread to me and I was thrilled with the colors. So nice to find some of the colors I love so much and are hard to find. As you can see some has already jumped on my hook. Now I need to figure out a place to store this new find until I can get it used up. And if it's as nice as it seems, there will be more coming my way. Don't worry there is always room for new thread, I will find someplace for it.
My last project was totally delivered today, sent off the patterns via email and the project reached them this morning so my hook is now free to do as I desire for the moment.What great feeling!
I have a couple things I want to get done before convention. Should have no problems meeting that goal.
Starting to get excited about the show. I have so much fun sharing time with fellow crocheters. Everyone seems to have a wonderful time.

The other day I looked out my window to our back patio and there was a whole flock of quail. But it wasn't just a flock, but a family of them. Rather large family with mom and dad trying to keep everyone going in the same direction. Quite the group.  The picture isn't the greatest as I took it through the window as I didn't want to disturb them. There were so many I couldn't get them all into one shot.  
Called them the Lunch crowd.
Dad is on the table overseeing the picnic
And of course I can't resist a flower picture
You know me!
Off to crochet now!
