Crabapple trees in bloom! Evidence that spring is around the corner despite the snow. Weather-wise March is always a mixed bag. For instance, today started icy, turned blustery, then rainy, followed by breaks of sunshine and sudden bursts of hail followed by more rain and sun most of which all happened in the time it took me to do the grocery shopping.
I've been dying to show these darling towels made by Carol, a stitching friend on the east coast where spring is still a ways off and spring fever is in the air. She used some of the bonus patterns (we sent along with her PatternBee order), to make them. I love the soft colors and the towels she used for these. So pretty. Nothing like baby animals to usher in the season.
And some more new additions, the Squeeks are done, and my goodness I'm still trying to figure out how something so small can take so much time to make. So many little details. At times it seemed endless. But I'm pleased with them now and happy to send them out into the world to work their magic and make people smile. The pictures I took of them turned out pretty sweet, and I swear they were actually posing! One of these little dears is already on her way across the sea, flying over hill and dale to a new home and her remaining fourteen sisters are hopeful that each of them will soon be adopted too. They want me to tell everyone that they smell good because they are stuffed with lavender.
Also, one more thing ---they are not for kiddles under 3 years old or anyone who will want to chew them, hang them by their tails, or pull their whiskers. Thank you.
Update: All sold--thank you!
