It's done!

I got the Vintage Buttons small done this morning before work - YEAH! I will hand it off on Saturday when my friend comes over. We will find some fabric out of my stash for the back, and I will give her some stuffing and ground walnut shells. Her sister will supply the buttons.
I was tired when I got home from work, but it was so nice outside I went ahead and did two jobs. First, I raked the gravel out of the grass that came with the snow that the plow put there the one time they had to plow. I swept it up and it looks so much better now.
The second job was to cut back the ornamental grass I had planted along the neighbor's fence last spring.
There was a lot of stuff to move down the hill including a gazillion sticks from the neighbor's trees.
I decided to use the leaf blower instead of raking it up and hauling in the wheelbarrow. The sticks kept the leaves and grass from moving down the hill so I had to fight it a bit. There are still sticks that need picked up and some detail cleaning, but the bulk of the material is gone and it looks better.
After that I was really tired!

The warmer weather went south of us so I envy your ability to do outside work this early. We are in the sleety area this morning. Maybe we won't get any of the snow until late afternoon.
