Feelin' the green

I don't know if it's because we had a breath of fresh air/40 degree weather last week, or if it's because it's just been too darn cold around here this week, or that we just had 6 inches of snow (nothing like north of NJ, though!), but I've been feeling the green lately. Spring is coming, right? Right?

These came in... YUM. I wrote up my pattern for the Emerald Challenge and realized I was severely short on green in my stash. I decided to splurge and just get a bunch of half yards in green from the always-awesome Pink Castle Fabrics sale section.

And I bought these two shirts at Target (on clearance for $7 - score!) For a quilter, I'm not much one for patterned clothing. I have to REALLY like it to buy it. Solids, on the other hand, I am the master of.

I'm feeling the springy projects too... I just finished a second springy scarf (pictures soon), and hopefully I'll be trying this tutorial from Let's Eat Grandpa for my bedroom. My scrap bins need some love.

Finally, I've been working with Honey Honey all weekend, thanks to the lovely Nicole of 1 Choice 4 Quilting, who I was lucky enough to meet and have dinner with last Wednesday! We only live about 40 minutes away from each other - too cool! The colors and patterns of this line remind me a lot of vintage sheets, and nothing says "spring" like vintage sheets.

I'm in trouble, though... no matter how much I try to kid myself, there are still at least two months of being cold left. =/ On the bright side, I have some big news to share with you Tuesday night!!


  1. I'm loving the green fabrics you just got, especially the chevron one! I love your Honey Honey pieces too, I agree very Spring!

  2. Those temperatures are way too cold for me! Nice green fabrics! And I go for solid tee-shirts too, although I'm not adverse to a little bit of embellishment in the form of embroidery or beading!

  3. I love those greens! I definitely do NOT have a problem with not enough greens in my

  4. All those green pretties are making me think of tulips coming up in March!

    I will be waiting to hear the news patiently!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
