Spring Flowers

Happy first day of spring! I grew up in the south, where March usually brought warmer weather. Here in New York, it’s been rain, hail and snow. But I’m not complaining because I know flowers are in my future. In the meantime, I’m tiding myself over by looking for all things flowers.

Florals are certainly BIG for spring. Me? If I’m swift, smart and savvy I will stitch up a floral ensemble in time for Easter. God help me, I’m caught up in my knitting projects, just tangled up in yarn and circular knitting needles. I’ll be lucky to get untangled and cutting out fabric this weekend (Palm Sunday is around the street corner!!). It’s **not** like I don’t have enough fabric in stash to pull this off —even in a little more than a week.


Haha, never seen floral straws before! Makes me want to have a garden party and drink lemonade!
