Saturday was the first day of spring.  Today we a lovely, gentle spring rain.  The buds are turning green on the willow tree by the pond in my park, which inspired today’s haiku:

Willow trees decked in
Diamond and peridot strands
For springtime’s first rain

Spring is here — pull those greens out of your stash and create to celebrate!


I leave tomorrow for Buenos Aires — it turns out that there are two events happening concurrently: Buenos Aires Quilting is having their 2nd annual exhibit, and the Festival Latinoamericano de Quilt y Patchwork is happening at the end of it.  Watch here for news and photos!
