Posts Tagged ‘Think Spring’

In the Pacific Northwest, today is absolutely beautiful day. Sunny, warm, it’s supposed to get to 60 degrees or more today, there is no wind, and the sky is a beautiful shade of blue! Absolutely perfect weather!

I feel sorry (sort of) for my friends in the Midwest and East Coast who still have cold and snow – lots of snow – on the ground. I talked to my Mother this morning who lives in the far north Chicago suburbs, and she said is was barely above freezing with at least 12 inches of snow and ice on the ground!

It may not ofically be Spring yet, but we know it is coming! This morning we set the clocks forward an hour and tonight it will stay light out until after 7 pm. Woo hoo!!!

Over the last few weeks I sent out an email to my quilting list and asked people to finish this thought –

I know it’s Spring when…

I couldn’t believe it but 97 people responded! I took all the responses and posted them on the Longarm U website. You can view the responses by Clicking Here I had to make three web pages to get all the responses listed.

Some of the responses are funny, some are thoughtful, but ALL are wonderful. I thank everyone who took the time to respond to the question.

If you have some time and want to Think Spring, read the responses by Clicking Here There are also several Spring quilt photos posted too.

Here is a close up of the quilting. You DON’T have to be “artist” to quilt the dragonfly. Hint – it’s all free hand ovals and swirls!

Now it’s time for me to go outside and work in the garden!

Happy (early) Spring to everyone!
