Signs of Spring

Signs of Spring

This was my second long winter since moving back to the midwest after spending 6 years in Florida. As the weather has been warming up over the last couple weeks, I've started to feel like I survived and am getting the itch for spring and summer. Last fall I planted bulbs for the first time and they've started to come up - and a few are even blooming! (Let's not tell them that it is supposed to snow this weekend, ok?)

The stores are all carrying sundresses and fertilizer which is another sure sign that warmer weather is just around the corner. (Although if I want to be really honest, that stuff has been out since Christmas was over.) Everyone is talking about Liberty of London at Target. I decided to join in the fun too. I don't plan on buying anything to cut up for a quilt, just for me to wear and put around my house.

Liberty of London Planter

A perfect planter for a pretty flower outside at the table:

Liberty of London Dress

This dress - which I will be making knee length. The hubby isn't a fan of long dresses.

Liberty of London Swimsuit

A swimsuit....last year I refused to wear one all summer. Hey, I had just had a baby! But he's 1 now and I'm out of excuses. And no, I won't be modeling this one for the blog. LOL

Liberty of London Box

This adorable box which I think will find a home in my sewing area.

Heather Ross Spoonflower

Also....not really a sign of spring but I received my Heather Ross mushroom fabric from Spoonflower yesterday. After reading about all the fading issues, I decided to just go with 1 yard of a light print. I am still thinking about using it to make something for my daughter. I'll probably just hand wash it delicate in that case.
