Springing About

It is finally Spring in mid-Michigan, and absolutely beautiful!   A few flowering plants are starting to show themselves, but there's not a lot to show yet, as far as growing and blooming goes, but the sunshine and blue skies make me happy.

I am sewing, not as much as I should, but steadily.  I've made (yet) another tote, some storage bags for my unfinished projects, and mesh beach totes for my Grands that I will use as Easter baskets.   I also made a couple of little surprise bags to send to two bloggy friends, using the pattern of the purse that I use every day -- I realized at the last minute when I was packing them up that I'd put the zippers in backwards, but I decided to call it a design decision and sent them off anyway.   Clearly I am not a perfectionist.  

We've had a couple of searches in my Search and Rescue group, and my grandson had a day t his week, so I've had some time to tromp in the woods.   It restores the soul.

Today I need to truly and finally clean my house, at least to the point that we can eat at the dining room table, which is currently covered with my next dozen sewing projects -- time to get moving.  Wish me luck!  :)

I love those little purply jobs at the top. Very pretty. We have a few blooming things, but we are way behind our usual. Rain and fog for our walk this morning. I'll be donning my rain gear.

what a great idea to have totes for the grands!

I had to smile at your daffodils...mine are the same way...growing up with fall leaves still around them ! :) Yet those leaves nourish the soil so I leave them there until late spring :)

I always like to see your color choices. And doing something backwards is not a mistake - it's called "being whimsical." LOL
