Excuses and Winners

First the excuses.
It was a beautiful day yesterday. I mean a no-jacket-almost-short-sleeved kind of day. Sunny, warm and a perfect time to be in the garden! Just look how much these grew since the other day:
Planting lettuce quickly turned into pruning roses, clematis and hydrangea, raking the flower beds, edging the beds — well, Pete did that while i trimmed the iris back— and sifting/turning the compost pile. Once we got going it was hard to stop! Needless to say, i was painting our bedroom (wha?) until about 10:30 last night. So that's my excuse for not picking winners yesterday. Hope everyone had a beautiful weekend, however you chose to spend it.

Side note: it's another beautiful day today. I wonder what else i'm not going to get done?! Serious dose of spring fever. How about you?

Now the winners! But first another side note to drag it out just a second longer. Again, i just have to say how uplifting and inspiring all your comments have been. If i ever need a reminder of life's silver lining,  i'll be reading through them again (and again). Ok, finally...the winners. A big congratulations to:

Please email your mailing address to and i will send some Joy or Good Fortune to you! Thanks again to everyone.

OOOh, I have been sooo strong resisting Terrain, as I can rarely bring myself to actually use your fabric. But now I have ordered a half yard of everything they had as a welcome spring present for myself. SO EXCITED. Just had to share ...

    1. Ann, HAPPY SPRING to you!! What a fun gift to yourself. Thanks for sharing! I saw that on Twitter this morning and thought Fat Quarter Shop must have known you were holding out! lol! Enjoy every little bit of it and I hope to see what you make, girl!! xo
