Always Possibilities

Spring is in the air, I can smell it and I can feel it with higher temperatures this morning.  That is until I took a look outside my window and what do I see - freezing rain with small hail stones.... I guess Ole Man Winter and Ms. Spring are warring with one another as to who will have the weather setting today! 

I am rooting for Ms. Spring because I am so looking forward to winter really coming to an end, although sheepishly I must admit that this hasn't been as horrible as winters past.  I cannot wait to see the crocuses pop their heads above the soil 
and to see the daffies waving at me when the wind gently makes them sway back and forth. 
and to watch the trees as those dead looking branches spring to life bearing blossoms with vibrant colors so cheerful and abundant.

I simply cannot wait, but suppose I must. 
I have been catching up on some of my blog reading and discovered that 
Randy is giving fabrics away, so if you head on over to Barrister's Block and get in on her fabrics giveaway, tell her The Bag Lady sent you., there is still time as she will be drawing the winner this coming Friday.   
Would you like to see a very beautiful and different take on a French Braid Quilt, oh my it is so striking.  Head on over to Ros-the Quilter first take a look at the quilt and then take a look at the quilting, the quilting is suburb, at least I believe it is.  (imo) then you can follow links and see other quilted pieces she has quilted, stunners all. 
AND here is another giveaway I found, head over to here and see what it is that Jackie is giving away and a great new tutorial by her blogger friend Snoodles!  What fun and her tutorial makes it fresh and easy to follow and complete that little project.
IF you are interested in hand quilting your quilts keeping up with tradition, you may wish to read a wonderful post about thimbles!  Head on over to Joans' Blog here and read what it is she has to say and see some of her wonderfully hand quilted quilts.  You might also be interested in the Chatelaine her friend made for her, it is simply practical and a good item to have when your hand quilting or even hand piecing, guess one day I will have to make myself one.
I received a telephone call from a neighbor, seems her mothers' caregiver is not well and would I pinch hit for a few days.  SURE I said, so if I post late I will use this as my excuse.... LOL time to dig out the hexagons again.
Well this is all I have to share with you today, don't forget to enter those giveaways, their all so great. 
Thank you for sharing some of your precious time with me today, I am so happy you came to visit.  Good Luck to all who enter into those giveaways, there is always the possibility you could be winners. 

The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours.  No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.  And the fact that it practically always doesn't, matters not a jot.  The possibility is always there.  ~Monica Baldwin
