supposedly Spring

Though the calendar says that today is the beginning of Spring,
it sure doesn't feel like it here.  And more snow is predicted this week.

On my daily walk down to the mailbox and back,
I'm on the lookout for the first flowers of the season
pushing their way up through the earth.
This week there are a few crocuses popping up,
which is a sure sign, snow or not, that nicer weather is on it's way.

After all of my treks back and forth to the mailbox, 
I finally found flowers IN the mailbox -
as Karen sent me a quilt to meander over,
and just look at all of those flowers!!:

Isn't it a beauty??!  I love it!
A few close-ups of  flower pots:
Karen said she did this as machine applique before she started doing hand applique.
She does gorgeous work, and it was a pleasure to quilt it for her.
And it was nice to see flowers again! :)
Happy first day of Spring and
hope there are flowers in your day, too.


  1. That is the only flowers I've seen, too. We had snow this morning, and more expected late tonight. Welcome Spring!

  2. It is a beauty! Nice quilting too!

  3. We had snow this morning too! I sure am tired of it and want the warm weather to come this way - along with the spring blooms! Nice flowers on the quilt!

  4. Mmmm! This quilt looks familiar. I have binding strips cut but have not started sewing yet. The quilt looks oh so good in your pictures.

  5. Very nice quilt and quilting! Do you know the pattern?
