I say, it really is about time we welcome in Spring with an updated banner on this blog! Every time I remembered that this needed to be done, I was not at my computer. Then when I was, I would get so absorbed by other things that I would completely forget. But it's up now and Spring it is.
The weather has been a mixed bag of light and dark, warm and cold. Blinding sunshine one minute, then a drenching downpour the next. Birds are nesting, hatchlings are fluttering about in the branches. Baby cottontails are nibbling at the soft green grass. And flower buds are already blooming here and there.
Worn and forlorn-looking though it is at the moment, I love this old greenhouse at the tulip farm. Everything around it has begun to awaken and bloom.
Lots of lovely moss and lichen around here. Our Golden Chain needs a trim as the branches have literally reached the ground. Clearly, we have some work to do.
But I don't have to worry about any of that now. I have lots to do right here on my worktable; so many wonderful new/old patterns to restore and share with you. April is right around the corner and I will be adding five new patterns next month to the PatternBee website, including the 2015 Bonus Collection. Oh, I am really excited about this "Perennial Garden Quilt" too! There are 24 large (8" x 8") blocks with lots of gorgeous flora, acorns, leaves and even mushrooms (see that stack up there in the top left corner). Plus other fun stuff I know you will love. And as always, a new BONUS for April--also with mushrooms. Do we love mushrooms? Why yes, we do.
That's all for now. Time to go gather up some goodies and kick up our heels.
