Springing Forward with Time

It's that time of year where we set the clocks ahead one hour so we know Spring isn't too far behind, but weather wise it sure doesn't feel like it. 

The evening temps have been in the 30's again which means the early mornings are quite cold, so I shifted my morning walks about an hour or two later a few times this week.  It's warmer this morning and we are expecting rain later in the day, we can sure use it. 

The progress on the Spring hand embroidery project is coming along, though looking at the knot work I wonder if I should have used a stem stitch.
I thought this guy was completed but I noticed I have to stitch the pupil of the eye, sigh it will wait till I'm ready to stitch the moon. 
I will be linking up at Kathy's Quilts today for slow Sunday stitching here is the link if you would like to see what other bloggers are slow stitching.

I'm still making the time for trips to the library and logging books read for the Library Love Challenge.
A biography by Karen Karbo was the first book read for March,
Lisa Van Allen's the Wishing Thread was suggested bu a friend and to my surprise I enjoyed it just enough to keep turning the pages. 
The book I am currently reading is the latest in a series by Amanda Lee, I love a cozy mysteries.
The first two books listed qualify for the other reading challenge I am doing, both are new to me authors.
Well that's all I have for now, I am off to the Master Gardener's Spring Festival today I am looking
for a quirky piece for my garden and maybe pick up a few plants to replace some of what I lost to the winter freezes.  Wandering around among plants and garden decor is a perfect way to spend a few hours and the weather has warmed to a comfortable 60.


  1. perfect embroidery project to welcome spring!

  2. We need much more water, but I am ready for warmer Spring temps. Thank you for sharing the books...always looking for a new book.

  3. I drove to a real white wedding last week in the snow and saw a mad march hare bounding along the brow of a snowy hill - looking very much like yours. I prefer tham to rabbits....

  4. Hi Deb: I love your Bunny, he is adorable, I am a reader, I have read all the Amanda Lee Thread books, she is a great writer, the story line is perfect for stitchers knitters and crocheters.
    I need to check out the Wishing Thread book.


  5. Your March hare looks great. I hope you enjoyed the Spring Festival. It looks like it would have been fun (if the weather was good).
