Wishing for Spring

It's near the end of February but I'm already thinking Spring. That's usually not a good idea here in northern Utah but I can't help myself. It's hard when friends across the country post their great weather on Facebook and talk about mowing the lawn. We had about 10 inches of snow Saturday/Sunday and more could be on the way. If not in the next several days, certainly sometime in the next month or dare I say two? So, instead of thinking Spring outside, I decided to bring it on in.

This small wall hanging was made I think 6 years ago. My quilting interest which had sat dormant for 8-9 years had just been revived. Who knew it would turn into a full blown passion! Anyway, I was living in eastern Washington state and feeling the need for Spring when I made this. I had spent a good number of years in Japan and Spring there was always cherry blossom time. (Looking at this I can see it needs quilting and that just might happen soon!) It's definitely time to hang this in my sewing room and remind myself that Spring will eventually get here too!

Oh Cindy...your wall hanging is so beautiful and very springy!!! I am like you...I need spring to come soon. I am very much a winter person, except for this year I seem to be a little depressed with the lack of sun. It's been a hard winter for me. Your wall hanging brought joy to my heart! :)
