Doesn't it do wonders for the soul? We're finally seeing some signs of spring here. In my backyard.....
one of my early spring rituals is to start hanging out bedding on the line to dry. Mmmm....smells so fresh. I anticipate this all winter long and am so glad to recognize that this simple thing gives me so much pleasure. What are your favorite passages into spring?
I've been working on some spring craft projects too. Here is a banner that I made for the Melissa Frances Blog.
You can go to Melissa's blog to see more images of it and to get the supply list and instructions.
Garlands have been a favorite project lately, so here are two more.
Another garland for the Tattered Angels Blog made from some of my old dressmaker pattern pieces.
Here's a little excerpt from the post at Tattered Angels: "Next up is my very, very favorite project for the month. I have to mention how proud my husband is of me for this one, because I recycled. There isn’t a week that goes by when he doesn’t mention “making our carbon footprint smaller”. Not only did I do that with this project, but I also cleared out a spot in our attic. I used to sew a lot way back in the 80’s– back when it was actually cheaper to make something from fabric than it was to buy it premade."
After I made the dressmaker tissue pom pom flowers, I sprayed them with Glimmer Mists Viva Pink, Turquoise Blue, and Key Lime Pie colors. Please go to the Tattered Angels Blog to see my other new spring projects.
One more thing to check out is the fun 7 Gypsies product that you can find at Frost it Pink. I used the file folders to make this project.
I still have to fill in my ancestors life information in this file. I'd love to make one of these for each of my closest ancestors, just for easy access in a small form.
The other products featured in the project are Websters Pages papers and trims and Glimmer Mists.
Thanks for stopping in. I'm off to get some things checked off on my long "To Do" list of house projects. I didn't realize how much there was to do until I wrote them down. Ugh. Oh well, it makes me happy when it's all finished, so I better get moving. See you soon!
