A Hint of Spring to come


Paperwhites and Hyacinth, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

The apartment is filled with the scent of hyacinth and paperwhites ~ a lovely hint of spring to come! Flowering bulbs in January have to be one of my favorite things!

Valentine Collage
At scrapbooking this past week, while everyone else was making beautiful scrapbook pages, I instead turned my efforts to making this Valentine collage to hang on my refrigerator! I'm into squares these days, though these are "twinchies" rather than "inchies", meaning they are 2 inches square instead of 1. The button fairy is one I made last year. She has a magnet on the back and seemed the perfect way to hang the Valentine collage!

Flock of birds
In spare moments, I've been creating a flock of felt and embroidered birds! Once I find the right cord, I'll hang these in a "chain" of birds to decorate a narrow wall in my apartment. I'm trying to decide if I want to make some cream colored ones with matching green embroidery to go in between these.

A huge Thank You to everyone who leaves comments! I'm not very good at replying to all of them (if I did, I'd never have time to stitch!), but I do read and treasure each comment and read your blogs with delight!
