With all the rain we have been getting we can certainly enjoy all the beautiful flowers popping their heads up, lilacs are blooming, the grass is a gorgeous shade of green and the birds are flitting all over..... I do love the changes of the seasons and what each season brings to our area! I would not change or trade a single season for all warm weather - each brings it's own majesty to our wonderful color palette. Funny how we can enjoy and certainly savor this season but with quilting and sewing we are already looking to fall and winter projects. Stop in the shop and see some of the beautiful seasonal fabrics we carry all year long - never too early to get started on those projects.
