Spring has sprung!

Last night was Friday Night Sew-In and lots of sewing was enjoyed around the world. You can read about the fun on the blogs that signed up - click here. At my place we celebrated FNSI by working on a group project, using up lots of pretty scraps to make a wallhanging. This was my friend Barbara's idea and we had lots of fun working on it together. 
More good news...
I am so happy that the birds are back in town! I always post a photo on my blog of my first robin sighting of the year - here is the post from 2 years ago. They seem to be here about a week earlier this year. I really miss the birds and always look forward to their return when the weather warms up. 
And that's not all the good news...

it is also St. Patrick's Day AND National Quilt Day! The NQA has a free pattern on their website - click here. And here is another great free pattern by Denise to celebrate the day - click here.  Click here for another fun post to read with free pattern links and ideas for celebrations. Pat Sloan is having a fun linky party to celebrate the day - click here to join in .
With all these reasons to celebrate, make sure you have a great day!
