waiting~somewhat patiently~for spring

Just when that 2 feet of snow was almost all melted, we woke up to some more of the fluffy, white stuff.

I am trying to focus instead on the signs of spring that have appeared during the past week ~ the return of the robins, flocks of Canadian geese passing overhead, waking to the sounds of the birds singing, and the need from time to time to actually put on my sunglasses!

And the cold weather is leaving me with more time to spend inside sewing. I have some great Japanese fabrics from Superbuzzy with which to make some new totes...

I'm hoping to get a bunch of these made for the Firefly Farm shop, then it's on to sewing some clothespin bags in hopes that the warmer weather can't be too far away.

Have a happy weekend!


  1. Just wanted to leave a note to tell you how much I enjoy stopping by here several times each week. I always feel inspired.

    One of my favorite things you do is to pull out treasures and find new uses for them. I love our town's big trash pick up day each spring and my most favorite treasures are also someone else's discarded items. Delicious homemade goodies, delightful old dishes, special books....I could live in your house, too!

    Just wanted to tell you thank you.

  2. love those bags. What do you do about the handles? What are they made from? I hope you get spring soon!

  3. This is such a longggggg winter. Well it will make one apreciate summer. Lovely bags. xoxoxox Clarice

  4. Hi Deb, hang in there! It's getting cooler here so that sun must be moving further your way. Love the bags.

  5. I love your bags! They look great! I know how you feel...just when I think it is "spring"..we get more snow..ugh. Hopefully soon...:) Have a wonderful Sunday!

  6. Your bags are great!! Yes, taht lovely white stuff can get a tad bit annoying when we are ready for spring!

  7. Those bags are gorgeous.

    The snow looks like what we got yesterday. Now today it is melting.

    God bless.

    Ugh, I know what you mean about the snow-- we live in a similar, chilly climate, and some days it feels like winter will never end! But it will. Your bags are beautiful and as colorful as the spring blossoms we're sure to see soon!


  9. OH! Boy!! I can't wait till you have some cloths pin bags available...I've been wanting one for a long while now...also, I want to know if you will be making anymore of your recycle tote bags...need to buy a couple for my sweet "GREEN" daughter...she will love them...especially in your new asian prints....hmmmmm!

    Have a wonderful time sewing...sorry about the snow...but hey...spring really is coming!! I can at least promise you that!!


  10. We have about the same amount of snow Deb. Raining today though and the forecast predicts rain for the next few days, so most of the snow should be gone by then :-} Your tote bags are wonderful - love the fabric.

  11. I can't believe you are still getting snow! It's so over for us here in Georgia. Winter is so short. I do miss the down time though. I felt like I hardly had a break and already have to get moving before it gets too hot do anything in the garden!


  12. Nice bags! I've had just about enough of winter too! If we don't get some spring soon here in Chicago I'm going to go crazy lol.


  13. The bags are great! You work fast. Hang in there, Spring is coming. We have flowers here, but then earlier this week we had some snow and frost. Amazing for western Oregon at this time of year.

  14. Lovely bags you've whipped up. Our weather today has been snow, rain and now sun. Typical MN spring weather. It's what our weather guy calls a real mixed bag. I know spring is coming, but my patience is running low, LOL.


  15. LOVE those bags! I also think your snow pictures are beautiful, but as you know, it is because I rarely see snow.

    Hang in there. Spring can't be far away. It continues to tease us down here, too.

  16. I cannot believe that you are still getting snow! We did too last week. Now though it is looking and feeling much more like spring! I hope it is right around the corner for you too.

    The totes you are making are just beautiful! I am so impressed by all of your talents.

  17. Love the materials and the tote hanging in the front in your last picture I especially like. The snow pictures are so pretty, but I know you are ready for Spring..take heart it's coming. Linda
