12 Days of Christmas Giveaway- Day 3

On Day 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway, we're looking forward to spring. In Kansas, we had a cold snap early this year, but we've enjoyed some very nice days with temps in the 50's and 60's since. I was lucky enough to be in Florida during the first snowfall, sketching on the beach between teaching at workshops. My kids had just returned home from a week at Disney World and would text us the temperatures each day with not-so-happy emoticons for emphasize. Oh well,....They coulda stayed, too!

Our giveaway for Day 3 - a trio of spring patterns including our Tulip Trellis lap quilt, Coneflowers charm pattern and Tulip Twirl Wool Mini Table Treat.Don't you just love it when the first tulip breaks through the snow and reminds you that it really will warm up again?



Comment here by 10pm tonight on what you look forward to most in early spring for a chance to win. See you tomorrow!

  13. I always look at our forsythia bushes to see the first yellow blooms on their branches ... they always herald the arrival of Spring and after winters in Northern Michigan (260+ inches of snow last year!!!) it is a welcomed sight!
