Hi :) Its spring in AZ

Hi, I hope everyone is well this week. Its been hard to stay in and work this week. I have had spring fever really bad. The weather has been just beautiful. The orange trees are in blossom and it is the most beautiful scent. The air in the evenings is the perfect temprature and smells like heaven and the birds are singing their little hearts out. :) These are some blossoms I photographed near my home. I am also beginning to work on Easter projects. This is a Chocolate Easter Bunny pillow. I am not 100 percent happy with it, so I am going back and making a couple adjustments on the pattern. But this is a sneak preview of one of the new things I have coming out in the next couple weeks. I hope you are begining to see signs of spring in your neighborhood too! Until next time......

Hi Gail,
Spring in AZ is just beautiful. I am so jealous. I just saw a tiny little bud on one of the hydrangeas in my back yard.

I love the chocolate bunny. Now I want something sweet to eat.

I am so jealous of all your flowers and trees! Just so pretty, it gave me spring fever. Your chocolate bunny looks good enough to eat, now I need chocolate--thanks Gail! Chocolate chips in the cupboard, maybe just a few.

I think the chocolate bunny is sweet. The blossoms are lovely, best time of year when the bluebells start to appear along with a host of daffodils.

Hi Gail! Thanks for your comment on my blog - I look forward to working with you too! :) You and Cindy are a joy to communicate with. The blossoms in AZ look amazing! I can't wait for spring. It's still cool in CA but hopefully it will warm up soon. Your chocolate stuffed bunny makes me want to create Easter goodies! Have a wonderful day and enjoy the beauty around you. :)

Gail this is just what I needed. It's snowing here in Minnesota. We all have cabin fever and are anxiously waiting for some sign of spring. Your photos are beautiful.

Here in the midwest it's freezing...with the wind bringing the temp below zero...BRRR! Glad to see that spring is starting somewhere. Your chocolate bunny pillow is too cute!
