I saw Linda's baby shoe on her blog and loved it as well, its so sweet, obviously a great tutorial!
I am quite ready for Spring now as well, but there are very few signs of it as yet. A couple of primroses have braved the winter cold here, but thats about it.
Thank you so much for popping over to my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. Liz x

That baby shoe pincushion is adorable! I am so ready for Spring, Dawn! I was just thinking this yesterday, as I watched more snow "showers" fall and banged my head against the wall.

Spring is a wonderful thought. We have been so gray day after day. Not as cold, but ugly for sure. There are buds on the tree's and my Tulips are showing their greens. Spring will come!
I love winter for the most part, but this has not been a really pretty winter.
Have a wonderful Day Dear Dawn,

Hi Dawn!

So glad I stopped by this morning...I always get inspired when I visit you : ) Thanks for the precious images and the giveaway info.

And, yes, spring is ALMOST here....yipee!

Dawn, I hope that you know that I'm here to visit every day. And I love to comment, but I am having such troubles. My computer always tells me that I have "Run time" errors when I'm here. So, if it should seem that I have gone away...I haven't! I'm just not able to hold on long enough to get a word out edgewise.

Linda did such a great job with the baby shoe. It just looks so darling.

I love all these images, especially the one of the children releasing the cute!

madrekarin said...

Hi Miz Dawn,
I am taking a break enjoying your blog...the first pic of the chicks is to die saved really fuzzy, wonder if I am doing something wrong..probably, as I am a bit photo illerate. I am ready for spring only, no summer this year please, just spring, till November. We have a sunny day finally, in the low 40's. I decided to get a few rays on the back deck,,,,,well, ya know those big flocks of starlings or blackbirds you see in the thousands, in big cloud-like formations,,,they decided to land in the trees that hang over my light gray deck, white deck furniture, and dropped a billion purpley dooos. What do you suppose they are eating??? Well,,,that was fun,,,NOT. Gotta love birds!
I gotta go see Karen and LInda K. now.
I deserve a break, after the..purpley doo incident....
Love ya!

By the way Dawn.....

I've been crafting today (treasures from the Artist Class--I love it all!) and I was thinking of you. I am SO GLAD you turned me on to Fabric-Tac glue. It's just incredible to work with. I started with your snowmen nad now I use it on just about everything. I had never tried it before.

I have to say, even a VERY experienced hot glue gun gal like me gets burned every so often with that darn thing....Fabri-Tac is such a great alternative.

You're awesome, just in case no one has told you that today (not likely) : )

love to you,

Starview Sonnet
