Hello Monday - Pretending Spring
Outside it is a gloomy Monday, all bluster and rain, gray skies and soggy ground. Inside however, I am pretending it is Spring. I spotted 2 little daffodils in the corner of the yard and one slightly battered Hellebore. I clapped my hands and said "Hello first flowers! You are a sight for sore eyes!" Then yes, I plucked them. The wind and rain were surely about to bash them to pieces and truth be told, I needed a bit of pretty to bring inside.
To keep up the illusion of happy Springtime on this stormy day, I have also started a quilt for a baby that could be coming any day now. Ooh, I'd better hurry shouldn't I? I am using the most springy springtime fabric I had on hand.
I am using several fabrics from Urban Chiks - Dream On for Moda from a couple of years ago, and a vintage-ish green solid that I also had in my stash.
As you can see, it's easy pretending Spring with all these happy, pretty flowers about. Well, just as long as I don't go outside.
Are you impatiently awaiting Spring, or are on the other side awaiting Fall? Either way, may your week be a good one!
