Inspration Kit #2--Birds in Spring

Spring has sprung--the grass is finally starting to turn green around here. The sun is shining and the birds are singing and chasing each other around--but unfortunately, as is pretty common here, the wind is coming right off of the lake and it is COLD! I might have to head up over the hill to get any spring-like warmth today! It is nice to live so close to the lake, so I'm not complaining, but you know how it is in the spring when you have been waiting and waiting for the warmth! Sigh.

I have been getting that urge to spring clean--air things out--get rid of the dust! I always feel so sorry for my houseplants by the end of the winter. They just look kinda gray and dusty! As soon as it looks like it isn't gonna freeze anymore, I like to get the hose hooked up outside and take all the houseplants out and line them up on the porch railings and spray the bejeebers out of them! Add some new dirt to thier pots and let them sit in the sun for a while. I'm gonna do that as soon as the wind shifts, lol.

I finished up my big order for the Loopy Ewe, and another custom order I was working on, so now I get to play a little! Speaking of spring cleaning, I was thinking about doing some destashing and listing the items in my Etsy shop, and I started to get a little stack going when I decided that instead of just listing individual items for sale, I would make little packs of things that match! Yeah! So I get to have fun putting the packs together--and maybe they will be an inspiration for a project or two for someone else! Win/Win! I listed my first kit yesterday and it sold right away. Sooo, this morning I put together another one--the one pictured above. I call this one Birds in Spring. It is listed in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.

Well, I should go back to work. I've been working on designing a potholder---but it's not really turning out too well! LOL What I have is more like a mini quilt instead of a potholder (yeah, I got a little carried away! lol) So, I need to get back to the drawing board. Maybe I'll try and finish up the hand stitching on that mini quilt this evening while I'm watching Ugly Betty and see if I can get it listed tomorrow.

Have a great day everyone--and so soak up some sun for me--OK?!!

Looks like Spring has sprung! Your work makes me want to go outside with my cup of coffee and sit on the patio and watch the birds.

did this one sell yet? I think you're brilliant for doing this! i've decided that i need to de-stash too. not sure what to do with my stuff though. i don't think people will take to it as much as they have with you.

Add me to the list of Inspiration Kit lovers please. What a great idea. Perhaps I'll do a little destashing when my belongings arrive from England. I doubt I could come up with such a lovely kit.

Thanks Jenn! It's not easy, lol, cuz I am a bit of a pack rat! I guess it is not so bad because I AM making something with them, even if it is just a kit.

Thanks Teresa (nice of you to drop by!)

Thanks SuchPrettyColors! Yeah, Ugly Betty! I look forward to it all week :-D
