Welcome Spring


To welcome spring, I am going to share the words to a sweet little song my dear Great Grandmother used to sing to me every night when she tucked me into bed.

My Grammie lived in a little guest house right next to our house - separated only by her lovely rock garden and a small lawn where we would sit with her and eat her strawberry shortcake, or shell peas just picked from her garden, or pit cherries from the orchard.

I subscribed to a newsletter on Bustle and Sew a few months now and love it! I just had to share with those of you who are not already familiar with the blog.

A Beautiful Surprise from Switzerland!


This lovely little book, sent to me by an extraordinarily artistic and skilled Swiss quilt maker by the name of Maryline Collioud-Robert, couldn't have arrived at a better time. It happened to arrive just as that nasty old bug got hold of me. I didn't feel like doing much of anything but reading and knitting.

Seriously, opening the box containing giveaway #2 was like opening a Christmas stocking!
