spring is hope

HOPE market tote from dsquilts

"Hope" springs eternal! We have been enjoying some glorious snippets of Springtime weather.
A client told me about this wonderful site for quilting and I stumbled upon this tote. (free downloadable) pattern for making your own tote. This would be perfect for Springtime along with a nice new quilt in Spring patterns. Denyse has some incredible designs!

Enjoy this weekend and I am in hope that you have some signs of Spring~

My crocuses and tulips are still bravely raising their heads in spite of today's blizzard and many unprovoked squirrel attacks ;)

Happy Spring!

It really has sprung! My hubby and I were in NY on Friday, and it was 75 degrees! I didn't want to leave.

I love the message of this tote...doesn't it seem like the old needle crafts are making a comback? I'm all for that!! :)

Best,
Michelle
