Happy Spring!

I love this time of year when it's still cold enough to be warm and cozy in bed at night but during the day the signs of spring are showing - sunny, warmer days, flowers peeking out from the ground, fresh bursts of growth on the trees. Just in time to watch the new season unfurl I thrifted this lovely chair and it has given me a new happy corner in my house.

Now all it's needs is a comfy pillow - I think I have some fabric somewhere that I could use.....

I got some more of the FQ swaps in the mail this week. It's so much more fun to go to the mailbox when you know there are packages headed your way. Thanks Maggie, Melissa, Laura and Donna!

And on a crafty note I made this art journal the other day - it's still a work in progress but I like it so far.

It's just random papers sewn together and bits and pieces of fabric, buttons and ribbons added here or there. I have decided to make it a book about my dad - it's been 5 years this week since he passed away and I think I am ready now to be able to make a reminder of him. I will show you when I have finished it.

We leave next week for a spring break trip to Washington D.C. and New York with the highlight of the trip (from the girls point of view) being a trip to, and lunch at the American Girl store.
Enjoy your spring days!
