{Sneak Peek} Spring and a Table Runner

Linking up to Darci's Sweet Shot Tuesday with this...

I took this a few days ago but I am completely NOT inspired to take photos this week.  Snow again?  This is beyond old.  My garden was in full swing this time last year and so far there is hardly a green leaf.  I will continue to embrace my lesson on patience.

On a more fun note, tomorrow is my Modern Quilt Guild meeting and I can't wait to swap table runners. :)  I will give these photos as teasers.

I'll post photos later this week of the finished product but I don't want to spoil the surprise!!

{Breathing in April}

In Minnesota we talk about the weather.  Some of it is polite, surface conversation.  But when you live here you realize that this weather talk can be deep.  As we all start coming out of hibernation and breathing in spring we all agree this has been a long winter.  It may sound like shallow conversation but in this statement we are all just rejoicing in the freedom to sit on the front porch, to shoo the kids outside to play indefinitely, to reconnect with the neighbors in the street.  To just feel the sun shine on our faces.  We might get some snow on Friday but today it will be 70 degrees.  The ice just went out on our nearest lake and I feel so much joy.  I just love it here.

The following photos were taken last Friday.  By today there is green everywhere!  The changes are amazing.
