Is winter over yet??


The order of calendar months is often different on the Cape from that of other parts of the country. We frequently go from January to February, March, March, March and June. No, that was not a typo! Yesterday, looking out my kitchen window, tiny snowflakes were swirling against a backdrop of clear blue skies and sunshine.

Enough, already!--it's time to think spring! Which is exactly what I'll be doing for my next project: a door hanger canvas that I plan to stitch as a gift. The recipient's favorite colors are a little different from the ones I used to paint the canvas some time ago, but I'm not anticipating any problems in making the switch.

So if you, too, are sick of winter, do come back and watch as these crocuses bloom!

I love the thought, and the design!We're really looking forward to spring. However, it's very cold and there are several inches of that white stuff.

Hmmm.. none of the white stuff, but plenty of overcast grey skies. I'll definitely be back to watch you Think Spring!

We should be in the mid 70s this week, so that will be a nice change after the winter we had.

Spring is also my favorite season, before the hot temperatures come to settle down for the entire summer.

By the way, in May we will be invaded by Cicadas. That will spoil the fun.
