It s -19 in Regina, Saskatchewan. So much snow out there, I have ordered my seeds and plan to start some wave petunias today. I need to see some green leaves. Thanks for the lovely fabric giveaway. Lots of time to sew with this cold weather.

Oh, those are pretty :)

I'm near Colorado Springs, where we're still having full-on winter weather most of the time! Had to drive home from Omaha, NE yesterday through blizzard conditions. My sweet daughter shoveled 9" off the driveway for us so we could pull up when we got here.

Beth Strand said...

We're in full Spring mode here in my part of Oregon. Crocuses are up, I saw mini-daffodils blooming and, more to the point, I saw the neighbor mowing his lawn yesterday! Thanks for hosting, your fabrics are adorable! pbstrand@msn.com

I live in MI and it's beautiful today! However, I live in MI and it could be terrible tomorrow ;) Thanks for the chance to win :)

Betty said...

I am in Alabama near the beautiful Tennessee River! Everyone here says "If you don't like the weather just give it an hour and it will change".

Barb and Sharon said...

I'm in Ontario and it seems like we are getting a taste of Spring. The snow is beginning to melt which is great but then it becomes brown around here for a while. Oh we'll l'll start looking for sprouts in my garden soon!

Brenda said...

I live in Southern Oregon and absolutely love spring! The first Daisies are blooming, planting flowers and gardening are second to quilting in my book. Love listening to the birds and the frogs while sitting outside. Thanks for the chance at your wonderful give away!

Wendy said...

I'm in Nottingham, England, which is the shooting capital of the country! I lucky me. We are devoid of quilt shops...

I live in the Netherlands and the spring is not coming at the moment ;-) thanks for the give away!

Jessica said...

I live in western NJ - it's so beautiful out today! We live in a very small town. I can't wait until the flowers come out!

Nanbon44 said...

I am in Northwest Florida, to be in the 70s all week... very mild weather here, not like my hometown in PA.. here my azaleas are in bloom, robins have been hanging around the yard and mockingbirds are searching for places to build their nests.. For me Spring is the time of year to get out and clean up the yards and flower beds and get ready for spring magic

Roslyn said...

In AZ we actually LOVE winter! Because summer is horridly hot! We have had a lovely chilly winter & now I am dreading summer already, because spring flies by SO fast.. and then it's 115 in the shade.
We have more than a dozen QS in our locale, but only a couple that I frequent on a regular basis.
I am currently working on a falling star wall hanging.

mikeskamo said...

I'm in central Viginia. We had a huge snow the other day so there are piles all around but today it's in the mid 60's! The juxtaposition of piles of snow and folks in shortsleeve shirts is a bit odd.

The fabrics are lovely and I've heard good things about those clips.

thanks for the chance!

Nita said...

I'm your neighbor to the north in Whitehorse, Yukon. Still winter up here!

Fiber Babble said...

Oh! I really like the FQs you've chosen!

I'm in SW Washington, where if you don't like the weather, wait a couple of minutes...!

Nancy-Rose said...

Spring like temperatures in Southern Ontario - - but it won't last :(

I've seen those Clover clips all over the blog-osphere, and would LOVE to try them!

Linda said...

It's almost spring-like here in Nova Scotia today...almost. still a bit of snow on the ground but otherwise just lovely. hurry up Spring!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

I'm in Manchester, UK where it's nearly always grey but there was some sunshine today :)

Sherry said...

I live in the Pacific Northwest, actually the Seattle, Washington area. We often have gray skies but we do have some beautiful scenery to enjoy. I love to visit my favorite little quilt shop on Whidbey Islnd at least once a month.

I live in ontario Canada and it got all the way up to 10degrees today! the tulips greens are just starting to poke out of the soils so hopefully spring is here. I love those fat quarters they are so pretty.

Ariane said...

I live in Kingston, Ontario. I too am excited for winter to be over. But the smell of spring is in the air. It was so gorgeous out today. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!!

Kathy S. said...

I live near Canton, Ohio. The pro football hall of fame is on the way to my local JoAnn Fabric store. It's been wet and cold (in the 30'sF here lately.) Today was in the high 50's! Whohoo. Spring is on the way.

Sher S. said...

I live just north of Los Angeles Calif. this has been one of our COLDEST winters in a very long time. Those fabrics are definitely SPRING inspired. I have a small set of those clips and absolutely love them. It is so nice not to leave little drops of blood on my quilts from the pins. Thanks for a chance to win a wonderful prize.

Lori said...

What lovely fabrics. I have thought of buying those little clips but havent yet. LOL. I live outside of Chicago, Illinois. We have snow on the ground that has started to melt the last few days. It has been in the 40's, but it is still too cold for my bones. Right now it is foggy. Cant wait for the summer sun and heat.

Terrie said...

What lovely fabric. I'm on the island of Montreal, Quebec and we hit 10 degrees C today! It's also my granddaughter's birthday - she's one!

Peggy said...

I live in NW Florida, where it is already getting warmer each day (in the 70's today).
Thanks,

Thanks for asking. I'm down on the farm in Ohio and anxiously awaiting spring! I am a free motion machine quilter. Just joined your blog!

Purl Buttons said...

I did the Free Motion Quilt Challenge, too! I am still better by hand but now I am not afraid of my machine.

We had a beautiful day. The ground was not frozen so we separated bulbs. Hope your spring is lovely!

Just Quilt It said...

I'm from central Illinois. Today, I had crocus blooming along with snowdrops and the temperature was almost 60! Thanks for having a great giveaway!

Lisa Cox said...

I live in a rural area of Missouri. I just survived my first winter here. We had 16 inches of snow in 2 days!!!! We moved here from Texas where to get 1/2 inch of snow a year is a surprise.
