Welcome March!

It is still really cold and snowy here in Denver but Spring should officially start in 3 weeks and the local bulbs should push through the snow: first the crocus, then the hyacinths followed by daffodils.  I can plant peas on St Patrick's Day so the gardening will start- providing the earth has thawed.  His Majesty the Tree was sewn thirteen years ago but still fun to look at.  March is the sycamore tree with signs of spring everywhere.  There is a birds nest in the tree of young leaves- lots of leaves with one stitch of ribbon each.  The kitty takes center stage with a needle turn appliqué in the center and an outline stitched in the lower right corner.  Take a closer look:

We have some crocuses out & the daffodils are ready to bud. Still chilly here but no snow or frosts.
