It's the Vernal Equinox, the first day of spring! The long winter is behind us now as we look forward to longer lighter days (and better picture taking). The weather, so far today has been a mixed bag. All bluster and rain one moment, then glorious sunshine the next. It keeps us guessing.
As I mentioned in the last post, gorgeous daffodils are blooming all over the place. We were glad to have rescued these beauties before the wind and rain beat them down. The fragrance of this particular daffodil reminds me of gardenias, only more subtle. It's SO wonderful to be quietly sitting across the room and catch the scent as it drifts by. Just like a breath of spring.
One of my sweet stitching friends recently sent me a few vintage embroidery motifs with a Spring theme. They were too cute to keep to myself. You can check them out over HERE.
And I keep forgetting to mention this, but I've been adding a little more inventory to the Vintage Stitch Shop, so please pop over and see what's new. Maybe you'll find something you've been looking for or need. I've still got a lot of other stuff I hope to get listed in the coming weeks so be sure to check back from time to time. This is such a tedious and time-consuming process and not my first priority, so I'm afraid "stocking the shelves" is always a bit sporatic.
Let's see what else...
Oh! I'm actually rounding the corner on the "Honeycomb" hexagon scrap quilt. Its nearly finished. Woot! Will take more pictures as soon as the sun comes back out. I've got camera in hand, ready to spring into action when it does.
