Spring Time at the Sick House

Yup. Still sick. My daughter is heading into the third day of her fever/cough/crud. It looks like the fever has peaked and broken, so we might be on the upswing. She actually ate for the first time, so it is looking good.

I've been busy not sleeping, giving medicine, letting my daughter sleep on me, so very little knitting here--just a spring dress:

I'm working on the back of Anna's dress. This is timely as I have an intarsia class on Thursday that will teach me how to do the flower on the front. The Jaeger mercerized cotton Siena is really nice to work with, though it is strange to have no give on the yarn. But the stitches look nice and it is very soft--important to my daughter.

It's a good thing I got started on the spring and summer clothes--spring is definitely here in Texas. Sorry for all you readers in the snow and ice...but we had shorts weather today. The smaller paperwhites are up:

My husband picked a number of these and brought them inside to make Anna and Mommy a little happier. And, Anna found our first daffodil--here's another that is ready to open:

Springtime in Texas is here!
