Wishing I had the magic to do
a little zip- zap SPRING .... but I don't.
Wishing I could tell you
I was squishing sand between my toes..... But I'm not.
Wishing my husband would stop telling me
" It is going to snow" once a week.
(I have been guilty of a little eye ball rolling)
Winter has surely been putting on a glorious display this year. It will surely be a year to remember.....
I can hear the stories
Remember the winter of 2014.
I 'd like to box up a little of it and save it for the 90* weather when I'm riding my bicycle in the sweltering heat of July.
I love having winter..... but winter can be a short chapter in my book . I am a bit wishy- washy about winter. I like the days that are sweet, I don't like the days that are freezing beyond belief.
I am a Spring Girl.
If I didn't sew I would be stir crazy by now.
What ever the weather I can wish a Beautiful day for you.
Today the sun is shining.
I can do winter if the sun is shining and the sky is blue.
Sometimes you have to look for Happy!
We are not without HOPE
I don't remember ever seeing flocks of robins in February!
A Flock of robins outside my window.
You never looked so wonderful Mr. Robin Red Breast
Somewhere under all this snow
SPRING will SProuT
........ If you're Blue about Winter ...... I'm sorry. You can blame me for the winter that seems to want to last forever.
I'm still trying to finish some winter projects which are ... Snow related.
At this point I am thankful there is one last hurrah of winter. I need more time.
After an introduction to Craftsy ..... and the Free Craftsy BOM 2012 here...
I started sewing my blocks in January 2013.... The Hope to finish dates have come and gone. I have had a few rip-de-dos with my seam ripper....... I've had a few Now what do I do???... I've tried to work with wool and realized I don't know what I'm doing... I've added a few detour blocks to tell my story.... You know detours... they are never quick. It has become more that what it started out to be.
I've learned a few things.... I've struggled with a few things...
I think I'll be happy when I can sing....
"Oh Glorious day... This quilt is on my bed!"
I'm gaining but still not finished... I need to
It is not always about speed.
Introducing you to.....
Winter Blues meets Happy Blues!
