April is Not Always the Cruelest Month ...let's make it Happy!

I read a poem long ago; it started with this claim:

"APRIL is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Winter kept us warm, covering
Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers."
T.S. Eliot, 1922-1965

Not true, I thought. It can't be true ... so many beautiful buds begin forming, and opening this month. And lilacs don't bloom until May ... and April showers do bring May flowers, with fresh spring breezes that blow the winter dust away...

Our summer fabrics are beginning to arrive and join the spring lines. These bolts just arrived from Wilmington Prints, and are fabulous in their color and design:

Flowers of the Sun

Flowers of the Sun border fabric


Beautiful "Spring Forward" fabric

"Spring Forward" blender fabric

My newest book title denies T.S. Eliot's claim of April's cruelty, instead celebrating our ability to improve our health when given challenge.  Stop in at the shop to pick up a copy for $6.00 (no tax; I've already paid it.) Or to order it online at $2.99 for your kindle or computer, with a free preview of the first chapter, click HERE:

And of course, your purchase total will be recorded on your Five Box Loyalty Card towards your own store credit award! 

Looking forward to seeing you and making April NOT the cruelest month!
