Spring Crochet & Pom Pom Wreath

It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN.

I hope you enjoy this wreath.

Except for the time a HUGE crow decided to land on my super tiny suet feeder and lost balance and flapped around frantically, probably trying to steal the entire thing, and causing my cat to nearly poo himself. It was quite the scene. But now, since we are on the bottom floor and have a balcony above our patio, there’s prime real estate for bird feeder hanging. Many trees, lots of hooks.
