Spring Inspiration

There is something about the winter months that make me long for spring colors.
When my first spring flowers open, I'm over joyed with their beauty. They are inspiring and as always, they bring a smile to my face.
Finally catching up with the free alphabet stitchies, I decided I had enough to show them off.
Since Carrie tempted me, It's now my turn to tempt you to make your own.  They are quite easy and very fun. Mine are actually much bigger that the pattern so don't let that scare you away.
I thought I'd turn mine into a quilt. I was even happily surprised to find 6 coordinating batiks to help me out. Don't you just love to find things in your stash?!
I meant to do that!
I found more inspiration around the yard. Sure they aren't in focus, but you can see the new growth on the Hydrangea behind them.
Even most of the Camellias have begun to bloom.
Every Monday there is a new letter. It's a fun, quick, spring project. Check it out and try not to be tempted!

Take care and be inspired!

Well, glad I could "tempt" you. LOL Can't wait to see how you finish your letter.
Pretty flowers. Love the ones in your header too.

Your flowers are lovely. My daffodils are just budding but not blooming yet. Your alphabet letters will be wonderful. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
