Spring is Here!

I am happy to say that spring is here - even in SW Montana. Our snow is nearly gone here in town - still a lot in the mountains. The gophers and robins are out, and I see my tulip bulbs peaking through the mud! Recently I signed up for a giveaway at To Dwell in Primitive Thymes blog and I'm a winner! I won this beautiful 'spring' banner from Melissa of Wings and Paws Whimsies! Lucky me! I know right where I'll display it!

Eco Colour

I've been dreaming of this book by India Flint for quite awhile and it just arrived in the mail today! I have dyed my own fabrics for years - I love experimenting with different flowers and plants from my garden. This book contains some beautiful 'eye candy' and it also has great info on how to dye your own fabrics! I can't wait to plant my garden (June, I hope?!) - and I'm envious of you who already have a garden growing!

Busy, Busy!

I've been neglecting the blog again! Sorry about that. Lots of exciting things coming up! I will be selling some of my quilties soon on Etsy. I am going to be selling them as well in a local Antique Store, and teaching vintage crafty workshops - so excited about that! I am also gearing up for the annual Junk Fest which will be held in June - I did some craft demos last year, but I think this year I will have a booth - so that means I need to create a lot of goodies to sell! I am also delighted to hear that I will have one of my quilties in the next issue of  Art Quilting Studio! More on that later! I had a great time in Arizona - more on that later, too!
