Happy First Day of Spring

 
Happy First Day of Spring!


It's been pretty gray here in Chicago this week.
 
 
 
The sun is out right now but I hear some of you are blanketed in snow or will be soon. I think we're supposed to get a little this weekend too. I love the snow, but only in winter, not in spring.  We had a good amount this winter and that made me happy but now I'm ready for the change of seasons (and flowers!). Bring on spring already . . . .

*   *   *

Tomorrow, March 21, is National Quilting Day. I've been working on making some small blocks for a new quilt and tomorrow I'm having a little Sew Along. (It's a surprise.) Just a little one because I know you're all very busy. Everyone should make time to do a little quilting tomorrow. Many of you will be out shopping for fabric, taking a class or celebrating your heads off. And that's all fine and dandy but be sure you don't get too busy to make something. If you need an idea for making something small and cute, come back Saturday morning for my tutorial to make a little mug mat and sew along with me.
 
 
Gather up some of your favorite 1 1/2" and 2 1/2" scraps and strips . . . . C'mon, it'll be fun.

I love your blue table runner. Happy Spring to you too. We also have some rain falling and gray skies. But, we are lucky to get the rain that so many others are in need of.

Something small and cute for National Quilting Day sounds like fun! (especially after 5" of fresh fallen snow) See you tomorrow. :)

You must be happy to have some warmer weather heading your way after so much cold. we are into Autumn here in New Zealand. I would love to join in tomorrow, but I'm off out tramping.

Kathy, just as you're looking forward to Spring weather, i'm looking forward to Autumn downunder. The days are still balmy, but there's a noticeable crispness in the morning & evening air.. and i love it!!
