Happy First Day of Spring!

March Madness started today .. our house was full of boys and baseketball this evening. Both our Washington teams won today .. WTG Huskies and Gonzaga! I got involved in my first bracket challenge and it's been lots of fun! My youngest son Robert is the family sports authority. He is going to college to be a journalist, hopes to get into sport journalism at some point. We've become quite the sports household because of him .. and I'm constantly learning the nuisances of whatever sport we are watching. It goes well with stitching :)

Tonight we also watched our Seattle Sounders, new soccer team win their first game .. it was really fun!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday .. don't forget to stop and smell the flowers .. or at least look as they start to peep their heads out in the sweet sunshine.

I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for family parties ...

No chance for flowers yet. It's supposed to get real cold again here today - not exactly the perfect day to start spring, lol. But I'll look at your nice picture instead.

First day of spring!! Yipee- (snow- not yipee...) I like to think it will come eventually.

Welcome back to blogging and stitching!! I've missed you. I have to agree - the Sunflower inn (or is it cottage) is adorable! I wish I could grow sunflowers. Last year I lovingly started them indoors and they were looking really fine. I transplanted them by a fence with total sunshine. I checked them the next day - GONE!! Groundhog ate all of them!! ARGH.

I got such a smile out of your header picture - so cute!! I also loved the daffodils - they are amazingly beautiful.

Michele,
Hello! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love your layout. You were asking about the designer of the Birthday Biscornu. The designer is Joann from Sapphire Stitching. You can find the pattern under Complimentary Charts.

Congratulations to both teams winning!

Have a wonderful day and I am adding your blog to my reading.
