Feels like Spring …

… is attempting to work her magic.

Our mornings are still chilly, the light sparkly frost on the rooftops and garden melting away as the bright rays of the sun slide seamlessly across the landscape. My snowdrops have had their winter’s moment of delight and the drifts are retracing their colour steps back to green – a different green from their eager January shoots – less vibrant, more sleepy – as they head back towards the earth.

Vibrant yellows are popping up – in the hedges, along the verges and in the neat cottage gardens.  Garden gates lay open beneath a clear blue sky, inviting Spring to wave her wand across the trees …

Last week in my discovery of c2c crochet, I gathered some balls of fresh, soft multi coloured yarn and made a pretty little throw for my sofa …

Spring Blanket as I’ve named her, lives happily over the back of my lovely little green sofa, with the more famous Gypsy Rose blanket that I wrote about when I made it and has been my most popular post since I started blogging 4 years ago.   Does anyone recognise the little tapestry cushions? Remember Primavera tapestries?  I so loved them and stitched several though it’s a few years ago now.

Today, the sun streamed into the lounge and the bare branches of my White Birch tree in the garden appeared to reach up to feel the warmth of the sun in the beautiful blue sky.

A new month and new challenges – I have these fabrics lined up for new quilts and quilt kits – my target is 20 quilt kits and 2 little quilts.

I’m linking up with Finish it up Friday and Red Letter Quilts OMG (One Monthly Goal) so I’m hoping that 2 little quilts and 20 kits will count as one project!!

Let’s see what everyone else has finished – and is aiming to finish in March.

Happy Spring Days.

    Right now, I am soooo #NonSnowEnvious! Our entire property is still under a 3 to 5 feet thick GLACIER! – Although, the next several days promise to be bringing above freezing temps and a bit of rain… So levels ought to lower a FEW inches! ;-}

    BTW, LOVING the GREEN SOFA!!
