Welcome Spring

A very big welcome to Spring, the blossom is out, new leaves are appearing on the trees and the roses, my African Ring neck Parrots are nesting....fingers crossed there and the big excitement in the house is that Hiedi and Kaiser our naughty Schnauzers are going to be parents again...hopefully to more than one puppy this time. So we are all looking forward to that little event in the first week of October.

 A wonderful day was had by everyone at Spring into Stitches last Sunday there were lots of laughs and all the girls enjoyed the project, I would pop up some pics but I left the memory card in the camera which my son now has grrrrr!!!!

Any way lets celebrate Spring with a pattern giveaway. So if you would like to win a pattern for the Coffee Table Caddy which I designed for "Spring into Stitches"just leave a comment and we will announce a winner next week
