Spring is in the air!

A few weeks ago I had an itch in my fingers to create something with fabric, while I was doing some utilitarian stitching. I grabbed some fabric scraps, a piece of canvas, a glue stick and some scissors and came up with this sweet, simple little number. It took me about 7 minutes flat, hehe. (Well, I mounted it on the red background and then the black background at a later date.) I really like the simplicity of it. Can I call it an art quilt? It has at least three layers... 

How about some REAL blooms now? Soon I tell you, soon! Look what I found in my back yard between last years fallen leaves? Signs of life! Woooot! 

This weekend was my kiddo's birthday. An entire decade! She had a few friends over for some pottery painting. While the paint dried, we went to the ice cream store for a snack, and then they planted little flower seeds in the pots. I think they turned out beautifully! The first artist is Celia, the second artist is Rafia, and the third artist is Makenzie. 

Cupcakes for all! Have a great week everyone!
