12 Days Until Spring!

How are you doing this week?  We just had (still) another snow storm yesterday.  Fortunately for us, the roads are clear and we haven't got ice.  I'm counting down the days until I can garden!

I like that the days are getting longer.
I also like when we "spring ahead" and re-adjust our clocks.

We've had two Nor-easter storms in the past week.

 Happiness is a new toy on a snow day.

I like that snow days are sew days!
It's time for the annual Premie Palooza! 
I finished 16 premie quilts yesterday.

My neighbor Carol and I often swap fabric.  It saves us both time and money.  This winter, Carol gave me this fabric for the premie quilts.  Isn't it adorable?
 And of course I had to use some poodle fabric.

My husband was home for a few days and I got to escape and get out without worrying about Scout.  I like going to flea markets.  Just walking through the aisles relaxes me.  I've been antique-ing for decades so I rarely find anything that I want to buy.  But this week was different. My favorite buy this week was a hankie wreath:
 Spring flowers on embroidered hankies attached to an old embroidery hoop.
Isn't it wonderful?
Well I hope you have a wonderful week!
Think Spring!

I love that hankie hoop! They are so pretty.

That would have been hard for me to pass up, too.

Hi Michele,
Oh my, that hanky wreath is SO cool! The embroidery looks fabulous, and talk about representing Spring. And how can it be only 12 days until Spring when today it is only 20 with a windchill of 7?!! It won't be long and we'll be pulling all the junk out of the flower beds. And Scout and a new toy - how cute is that?! Nice job on the premie quilts - they are so sweet. ~smile~ Roseanne

The hoop is brilliant. My sis in law loves old hankies. or new ones when it comes to that. Each year she asks for more. I don't know what she does with them! LOL
But I am sure she would love this sort of thing. I shall have to try to keep remembering it for Christmas. Or...her birthday is in April. I might remember that long.

It is definitely feeling spring - like here! Scout looks like she loves her new toy! Your preemie quilts are great - they look quick to make, but perfect for those little folks! Love the hanky wreath, too - will you hang it somewhere?

Neat wreath! I'm excited to adjust the clocks this weekend, but looking at that snow outside, there's no way I can believe we're less than two weeks away to spring! lol

Scout looks so comfy. I'm envious.

It takes me weeks to adjust to DST. Love the moon and the tree shot. Such lovely likes.

the spring hankies on the hoop are so beautiful! And what a wonderful way to display that lovely embroidery. At one point I had a collection of embroidered handkerchiefs and I wish I'd thought to show them like that! said...

I think even though the calendar says is going to be slow in coming. :( The hanky hoop is awesome though!
