We are still in search of spring around here. We have had a few nicer days, but this weekend has been ridiculously cold. So I guess I will have to create my own spring... inside for now.
My first project was our mantle. I became sick of looking at wintry items but there wasn't much in the budget for decorating. So I made the banner out of some scrap fabric I had on hand.
I also made a new burlap wreath and found the metal Home sign at Hobby Lobby for just $10. Everything else I had on hand. All in all a pretty cheap and refreshed mantle for spring.
And I've been sewing too! I made this little skirt for my grand-daughter Callie. She can wear it as soon as I get it in the mail because it's 80 at her house.
And I made this one for little Addison who has grown like a weed this winter. Instead of lace I added teeny pom-poms around the bottom edge of her skirt.
I am also working on a dress for her and I am almost done. I figure when or if it ever does get nice outside I will just put my sewing machine away for awhile.
We did see our first robin yesterday. But the poor thing looked cold. I just hope he doesn't turn around and head south again.
Although I couldn't blame him.
But hope springs eternal and that my friends keeps me hopeful for spring.
Have a wonderful week,
