Spring has spung on Vancouver Island as my friend, Claire, has been busy in her garden…weeding and digging!  She reports that all the trees have blossoms and the tulips and daffodils are all up!  Yup, sounds to me like it’s time to go HOME!! haha

Claire has also been weeding and digging around in her wool bins too…and produced this lovely wool garden which she will be stitching while lounging on the beaches of Hawaii!!

Is this not the PERFECT runner for this time of year!  It’s called ‘Garden Row’ and is designed by Threads That Bind.  Don’t you just love it!  You can find the pattern HERE

This will be a nice keepsake piece… tied to lots of good memories of her Hawaiian holiday with her family!  I love it when that happens!

I hope it’s Spring where you live…and if it’s not, then just root around in your wool bin!  There’s lots of Spring out there!  You just have to dig for it!!

Speaking of SPRING…Jo Kramer of Jo’s Country Junction is having A Spring Fling of her own!  Jo and her daughter, Kelli wrote a wonderful book called “Country Girl Modern”…so to kick it off they are having a Country Girl Modern Blog Hop!


You can read more about the HOP here at the first stop…Country Threads Blog!  The book looks FANTASTIC…and Mary has been busy sewing up a table topper using one of the patterns from ‘Country Girl Modern’!  When you are finished visiting Mary then head over to Michelle’s Romantic Tangle where we can read her take on the book! 

Every day for the next SEVEN days you will be hearing about Jo and Kelli’s new book…but even better…at each Blog Hop Stop YOU will get a chance to WIN a copy of your own to keep!  How fun is that!

So get hopping!!  Go in order so that you don’t miss out!

  1. Hard to think Spring with a foot of snow on the ground and three foot piles where it has been plowed. But it is melting..yay

  2. That is so cool that you are on the list. Right after Bonnie! You're like a celebrity now! I can say... "I have actually met you". Hehe. Congratulations !

  3. I think your whole blog was about spring this week, Paulette! There were Easter projects everywhere. :D

    We are expecting a major thaw this week too, and we are all SO ready!

  4. Beautiful runner! Thanks for the links and have fun in the sun!

  5. Can hardly wait for your day?😳

  6. The flowers are a blooming here and the sun shining, got up to about 15C yesterday and today is heading in that direction. Going to go for a drive and check out the blossoms today.

    Claire's project looks lovely.

  7. Lovely flowers! Very springy.:)

  8. Love the flower piece, and definitely fun for this time of year, reminds us that spring will come, eventually, lol.


  9. Ooh that runner is just gorgeous - I think maybe I should go to Hawaii for her though, so she can stay home and work on it. *G* Looks like a great book!

  10. Love the table runners. We are still knee deep in snow but hopefully the warmer temperatures in the forecast will get rid of it quickly! Off to check out the book!
