It Feels Like Spring.

It feels like spring here in California. Weeds are growing...well like weeds. I think it all depends on your perspective, some of the weeds, lambs quarter for one, has tiny little leaves that are in the shapes of little tiny hearts. There are others that all have tiny little flowers.

They are so intricate and so pretty that I even enjoy seeing them, even though, I know that they will be mowed down at some point.

Yesterday, my daughter Emilie came for a visit. She thought I needed a new wreath. That girl just amazes me.

I have wanted one of these forever, I tried making one but I had so much trouble with the hose. She of course, a child raised on playing with Legos figured it out. Her name means artistic. She is just that.
She also brought me an Hyacinthe.

It smells so nice. Last night it made the whole living room smell sweet. It really made my afternoon.

I got my little rug bound the other day. It turned out so cute. I am glad that I finally did this rug.

I told you I had bunnies on the brain. I wanted to show you my next two projects.

First this Mama Bunny Rabbit and her baby doll.

Pattern by Rock River Stitches
I enjoy Tammy's patterns, and I look forward to making this one.

I also ordered another rug by Primitive Junky. This one is called The Spotted Hare.

Primitive Junky---Cammie Bruce.  
I hope to get wool pulled and to start this today. We are supposed to have wind and rain. So it is a good day to hook and sew. The sky was pretty red this morning. This sailor will be pretty happy.

I wish you the best kind of day today.

  1. Love the wreath Emilie made for your door!its perfect for spring! Looking forward to starting some spring stitching too & I've a bunny punch needle to finish.
    Have a lovely day.

  2. i can always count on you to brighten my day with flowers!!! it feels like winter here and i am just fine with that!!!

    i need to find me some purple tulips or hyacinths!!!

  3. Everything looks like Spring at your place
    from the hose and flower wreath, the Hyacinth, the bunny rug and your new spotty hare pattern. Your daughter is pretty crafty.

    I still have my winter wreath on the door but today feels more like a Spring day for a change. The snow has gone down a lot and we even have bare patches on the lawn but there's still some snow banks. It will be a while before we see signs of spring though.

    I'm in no rush for the weeds to grow, lol...
    Have a lovely day.

  4. I love your little rug, it turned out so cute! And your new wreath is very pretty!

  5. So many great crafts! I love the hose wreath. You guys are so talented. :-)

  6. Pretty wreath! It IS a springy thing! I would have gotten discouraged with the hose, too! Are you feeling better?

  7. Love your new hose wreath.
    The spotted hare rug is one special rabbit !
    Very cute.

  8. I love the spotted hare. I have Cammie's Peter Rabbit pattern, but have not yet hooked it.
    32 days until spring!
    Hugs :)

  9. Me and all my colleagues from essay writing service also feel like it is spring:) The weather is so nice that it is hard to believe that it is still winter outside.

  10. Super cute wreath :) How thoughtful of Emilie to make the wreath for you and to give you a spring hyacinth!
    Such a sweet girl :)

    Love the projects!! So darling. I'm happy for you to have time and nice weather to enjoy doing handicrafts.

    Have a sweet day.


  11. Lovely, lovely, Kim! Emilie has great talent, undoubtedly inherited from her mother and father! ...xo Nellie

  12. The hares and rabbits are great - especially the spotted hare...oh, and of course, the mama hare and her child. It is easy to get obsessed with bunnies - the only stuffed animal I ever made for one of my grandchildren, so far, was a bunny.

    Thank you, also, for sharing your buds and blooms. At this time of year even the weeds are amazing. What's amazing is how God makes life spring forth season by season. Thank you, Lord!

  13. Your daughter is very talented! Your rugs are always so pretty, and I love seeing the finished product. Have a blessed Sunday!

  14. Love your pink gingham pillows! Are those prairie points or lace for the border?

  15. Well that wreath is just beautiful and yes, spring is springing around here also.


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
Think of this as coming onto my porch and having
a visit.
