This winter, though, has tried our patience. Schools closed due to icy roads. Multi-car accidents due to darkness and fog. Late blooming plants this spring were unexpectedly re-buried in last night's mid-April measurable snowfall.
We had a year, a few years ago, where Spring was fleeting ... late winter snow followed almost immediately by oppressive summer heat that extended long into fall before a nearly snow-less but frigid winter. The cycle of seasons has been erratic this past decade, and I long for the days when I could look at a calendar and rely on the pages turning predictably.
So I'll tempt you to believe in Spring again, by sharing photos of the fabrics we selected for this season.
|seashells and ocean currents, buoys and lighthouses|
|sailboats and sea breezes|
|Spring and summer colors|
|Fairies, bunnies, silly birds, hearts flowers and dragonflies|
|bright happy colors|
|all ready to blend together into something cheerful|
|old friends to make you smile|
|Bugs and Tweety, flowers and more|
|dogs, butterflies, baseball and blues|
|Beautiful complementary colors in silk and quilt squares|
You might like to go to the blog to see the progress I am making on the tie quilt for my friend who is a retiring principal. I really like the way the blocks are coming together. Four down, and nine to go. (yes, there is an extra block in this calendar wall hanging ... it will be a surprise.) I update my Journal page when I finish a block.
