Yep, I won a blog drawing.  Look at these two great books that I won.  The drawing was held here: She Brews.  She is in the Wisconsin area and also does shows like I do -- only a lot more shows.  I don't know how she does it, as I know how much work is involved in getting ready, set up and then actually doing the show.  Check out her blog for her great fabric collages (scroll down) and -- she paints!  I love people who are able to paint, since that's something I have never been able to do.  If you drop by, be sure and leave a comment.  It's hard to blog and not know if anyone is reading or if you're just talking to yourself (LOL).  You guys are great about leaving me comments and I appreciate each and every one.

Anyway, these booklets are great!  I've already picked out 3 projects I want to do and that was only a quick scan through them.  Yep, that's just what I needed -- more projects!  But some of these are so cute I just can't resist.

Our weather here has finally decided that winter is over (YAY!).  I actually have daffodils blooming -- the first time in 3 years that I've got to see them.  Usually the bud forms then a hard freeze or even snow and ice comes along and that's it for spring flowers.  It's beautiful here right now -- all the trees and spring flowers are in bloom.  Hope you all are enjoying some nice weather also.  Can't wait for this weekend -- I think I will stay outside the whole time. 

Have a nice weekend everyone -- and I'll see you sometime next week.

Your Maddie is quite the acrobat! Enjoy some sunshine for us; we've been having rain mixed with SNOW this morning! Isn't it April?

Congrats on your win - yeah, like we need more inspiration; right? So happy to hear you're seeing some springtime! We had summer for a couple of weeks (high 80s), but now we're back to spring, and it is delightful. Looks like Maddie is making a prison escape!
