Lovely photos, Charlotte. Your stitching is always inspiring. And what a great quote from Annie Dillard - so apt for those who work with thread and yarn. Happy spring to you.

Thank you for the wonderful eye candy. Very serene and comforting to my weary winter eyes.

What a heavenly post.....just adored the - Ann Dillard.......freezing here today and yesterday I snoozed on the front porch!!
But peas are going in this weekend!!!!


Thanks for a lovely post.
Living in 'opposite' seasons, this reminded me so beautifully of the longing for spring. Hope the warmer weather soon finds its way north.


Charlotte your dolls make me happy....they are super darling!

Spring is full of tricks. The weather here in the Northwest is the same. We have had unusually sunny skies, but it is so chilly when you step into the light. But I agree with you...sometimes seeing the sunlight is enough.

Lovely post, beautiful words & pictures. We are having very nice weather, which is amazing for us in the springtime. Trees are blooming & a little rain here & there. Thanks for brightening my Spring day!


I just adore Spring, and your post painted a beautiful picture of it!

A stream of autumn sun is struggling through the clouds down here in my part of Australia, so the feeling of catching that light is just the same!
