Springtime 2023!

Spring is finally here!  Spring is one of my favorite seasons.  The Japanese Cherry Blossom trees were so lovely this year as they lined the streets of Victoria.  After a long winter, it is always a joy to see the trees bloom again.  Now the winds have returned to carry the blooms away in "blossom snow".   What have you cleared room in your schedule for this Spring season?   Perhaps you want to start a new embroidery or knitting project?

How do you capture the beauty of the season?  Have you been waiting like I have for the weather to warm up enough to really get planting a garden?  I love my garden, and the Lovely Little Embroideries book is a great guide to capturing your plants and flowers in embroidery.
