Spring is Here! My yard is quickly changing and it reminds me everyday how lucky I am; as long as I pay attention to it! This is a unique time in the world and a lot is happening that can take away the joy in our lives. If you are experiencing sad thoughts or you feel scared, let's look at some pretties that will help remind you to look forward. These Spring Embroidery Designs might just get you in the mood to "dust and fluff" around your home.
In my part of the world, we have had a lot of rain. I can tell you we were singing this little Rain Rain Go Away song a few weeks ago.
Here is some Rain Gear to go along with all of that wet weather!
Now that you have spring weather, I bet your Garden Hat and Gloves are getting some use like mine!
If you are getting your garden ready, maybe you are thinking about planting Peas in A Pod?
Don't forget to pull out that Watercan so you can fertilize everything really well!
Is your yard starting to come alive like this Spring Tree?
Have you loaded up your furry friends for a ride like this Old Spring Truck?
Are the little critters starting to come out of their winter homes like this Bunny and Bird?
Maybe you live where there are Spring Lambs frolicking in the green fields.
Or have you seen a Sweet Bunny hopping around your yard nibbling on the fresh grass?
I'm sure you are already seeing the insects like this Fringe Bee buzzing around and doing their work!
Or have you grabbed a blanket and looked at the Rainbows that pop up after those storms?
I am hoping my garden will produce huge vegetables like this Bunny with Carrot!
Wow! Just seeing all of those pretty designs together really makes me feel happy! I have been working in my studio on new designs, catching up on sewing as well as getting my yard in order. Focusing and working with my hands have really helped me stay grounded with the hard events in the world around me. If you are not sure how to move forward, just pick up a tool. Any kind of tool whether it be a paintbrush, garden rake or pair of sewing scissors. My favorite stress reliever is pulling weeds. It's FREE! If I get in a sad mood, I just go outside for about 15 minutes and yank those weeds out. It helps clear my mind and if you do it a couple of times a day, you will look up and your yard will look fresh and clean! Just give it a try and I bet within a few minutes, you will have all sorts of ideas for new projects. The hardest part is always getting started. I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you have learned and are generous with what you create. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
