Thinking of Spring

The weather report indicates that we are to get 8-12 inches of snow.  Hard to believe since it got up to 40 degrees yesterday.  I thought I would take time from my other quilting and make a little Easter table runner.
I haven't done much applique and so I'm learning something new.  I adapted some patterns that I had and added the words from a familiar hymn.
We are all our own worst critics and I see some things that I would for sure change if I did another one.  But for the most part I am pleased with how it turned out.
Today, when it's howling and snowing outside I can be reminded that Spring is on it's way, even if it has taken a detour and left us some snow in it's wake.

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; 
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, 
prosperity would not be so welcome."
 ~Anne Bradstreet

We give you our day today, Lord~


  1. Oh the wonder of Renee's never ending talent! Everything that you create is so beautiful!!!
    Are you having a fun Snow Day?

  2. Oh how adorable! You did a beautiful job.
    Sincerely ~ Trish

  3. I can't wait for spring! I wore flip flops this morning to walk my dog but we are supposed to get snow later this week...

    Beautiful table setting!

  4. I ♥ your table runner. Great job. Isn't applique fun? A little daunting at first, but fun. I really love a demo that is over at the website on applique. She makes it so easy (she's a local Utah designer.) It's under the appli-glue video. Anyways, your table setting in the picture above is beautiful too!

  5. You did a great job. Cute table runner. Your table looks ready for Easter. I need to get Valentines put away and start getting ready for Spring. Maybe if I start inside, outside will follow. Love the fabrics you used so "cottagey"(?)You know what I mean.

  6. Nice! And the little cupcake stand is darling, too.

  7. Sweet table runner.
    I'm hoping spring comes to you soon. I'm really itching for some green....even dandelions would be fine!
