With the warming weather, I think many of us get a bit of cabin fever, wanting to do some outdoor activities and spring projects. I thought it was time to hang a Spring Wreath. I made this one a few years ago, and it is still looking good.
Spring is a nice time to send some special cards, especially if you missed sending Easter ones like I did. These rabbits work on the inside as well as the front of a card. Punching a decorative window on the front gives you a dimensional card. See the entire post on how to do this on Stamping For Spring.
Maybe you’d like to give a little gift for spring. One that I made in 2016 was an inexpensive gardening gift for a few buddies. I got a kneeling pad at the dollar store, topped it with a seed mix and a bit of chocolate, then tied them with ribbon.
Another inexpensive gift idea is a nice handmade card with a little self contained flower pot with growing medium and seeds included. I did this post Springtime Cards to celebrate gratitude for friends.
Are you looking for a small quilting project? Here’s my Spring Tulip Mini Quilt, with paper pieced flying geese.
Do you have a springtime large print that is begging to be made into a quilt? This Attic Windows quilt features a beautiful magnolia print, but any floral print would do.
This year I never did get to planting seeds inside as I usually do. With a light snow on April 9th, I am glad I’ve waited. The trees are leafing out, and I hope we are soon past any freezing nights, but it will go into the 30s again later this week. If I am lucky, I’ll find some bargain plants and some strong veggie plants at the garden center in early May. But until the danger of frost is well and truly behind us, the pots remain empty.
