Spring Flowers

Although there is still a chill in the air, the blue skies and sunshine outside my window give me the hope of Spring.  Always at this time of year I find myself longing for the new season's arrival.  I am filled with  anticipation to be able to be outside again, gardening, birds singing, and flowers blooming.  Until I am able to tend to my outside garden, I thought I would just plant one inside for me to enjoy.  The only difference is that I created this one out of fabric.......
I think it is safe to say that I am hooked on making these little quilted wall hangings.  When I found this fabric with it's sweet flowers and ladybugs I knew that I just had to create something fun with it. 

I found this ruffled trim in the perfect shade of green---turned upside down, sewn with the ruffles pointing up, it is the ideal  "grass" to plant my garden. 

A few sweet buttons, some blanket stitching, some fun ribbon and rick rack for the stems and my garden is complete. 
Speaking of beautiful Spring flowers--this is the perfect post to share with you some beauties that I just purchased at Michael's.  I just had to have them--they look so real.  and they are two of my most favorite flowers.......

and Roses

 It will not be long now----Spring is just around the corner.
