I am so excited that March is here. Every year, I feel so relieved when March has arrived, it's almost like Wednesday in a week, you've made it over the hump, and it's downhill from here. I know I will only have to put up with the cold weather for a little while longer--I don't mind being hot, but I can't tolerate the cold. Don't get me wrong, there are things I like about winter, but there are lots more things I like about spring--St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite days of the year, I guess it's the Irish in me, and the fact that green is my favorite color. I also love Easter, and my birthday is in April. I think the main thing I love about spring though, is the flowers--hyacinths are my very favorite, along with lilacs, daffodils. tulips, pansies and forsythias. Knowing that getting to enjoy all of this in only a matter of weeks makes me smile.
Today also marks the beginning of 2 stitchalongs I am participating in with some online friends. One, is Carriage House Samplings Shores of Hawk Run Hollow, and the other is Carriage House Samplings "girls" series, I am starting with Elizabeth. Today I plan to get started on "Shores", since I have all of the supplies ready to go, my chart finally arrived in the mail on Friday. I have ordered the linen for all 4 of the "girls" from my favorite online shop Elegant Stitch, and will start on Elizabeth as soon as the linen arrives.
