We had our first signs of spring last week and then of course we had a bit of snow this week.  Here is Kyle posing with our little Siberian iris on the very first day they bloomed.  They weathered the cold this week just fine and the warmer weather coming this next week is sure to bring out lots more flowers.

Just in time for Easter and spring, I finished this cute table topper.  The pattern has three sizes and includes instructions on how to turn the largest size into a tree skirt for your Christmas tree.  Great for all seasons, all holidays and many different prints of fabric.

Now we have butterflies, butterflies and more butterflies!  I am not really sure how this happened but three of us made new display items and they all have butterflies in them.  I think it is just because the fabrics are so appealing we just can’t help ourselves.

This pattern offers a 16″ tote (shown) or a 10″ purse size.  It is fully lined,  has inside pockets and a unique closure at the top that doesn’t require a zipper.  I really like the square bottom and the fact it stands up on its own.

A great new line of butterfly fabrics arrived a couple of weeks ago.  With a panel of 4 – 16 inch butterfly squares and beautiful coordinating prints, this group is a winner!  Here is a 18 inch throw pillow that Doris made from one of the squares.

Vicki has been working on this spring-y table runner from a table runner book that offers a dozen different table runners and table toppers.  The center of this one is part of a border stripe but could be any print you wanted or even a batik or solid type color.

Till next time – happy crafting!
