Spring has Sprung!


It's a gloriously bright spring day here, though it's blustery too, but great for blowing away the cobwebs!
I always think of the funny nursery rhyme at this time of the year; Do you know it?

Spring has sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where
the birdies is?
There he is
Up in the sky
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!
I'm alright I won't cry
I'm just glad that cows don't fly!

Amen to that!!LOL!

I'm quietly welcoming spring to my home with not alot of rearranging or decorating - at this time of the year it's hard enough just cleaning and that's what I did yesterday, But last evening I fancied making just one more wee bunny~

He's made from the old quilt I cut up last year to make spring things with so I hoked them out from hibernating in the cupboards and set them out.

This is the Easter egg makedo though it's so bright here today it looks washed out when really its darker stained~
And here's the cutter quilt ditty bag~
Not forgetting Miss Harriet Hare proudly wearing her cutter quilt apron

Set out my cross stitch spring pillow - click here to get the free pattern I made for it. (At end of post.)

And of course no spring decorating is complete without fresh cut flowers, some daffs on the table
And the forsythia I picked in full bloom!
I loved having you visit and sharing with you!
wishing you all a blessed spring!
A better verse to leave you with that the first rhyme-

It is spring time in my soul today
for when the Lord is near,
The dove of peace sings in my heart
the flowers of grace appear.

Amen to that! God is so faithful!
Best wishes
