It's been a scorching 38 degrees here in Illinois with enough sun to kinda-sorta make it bearable to be outside to start cleaning up the planting beds. Parker and I have been busy lifting up leaves and dead grasses to find (gasp!) "signs of life!" He loves to scream "SIGNS OF LIFE!!!!" out loud like he just discovered a secret den of hidden leprechauns. I love this time of year - it gives me hope for flip-flops, tank tops, bbq's, margaritas, and increasing my overall freckle count in the sun.
I hope you've been able to get outside to discover signs of life, too!
In other news... I'm trying to hop on the productivity bandwagon again. I finished my Strip Quilt top!!! The next step is to create the back of the quilt and prepare it for batting - quilting - binding.
AND I've been working on 3 fleece blankets for family and friends. Maybe I'll get a chance to get back to making more items for my etsy shop next week? I certainly hope so! It's been looking pretty feeble-geeble-gobble lately.
Here's to seeing more sun and warming up for spring! CHEERS!
