Things have been very quiet around here. Hence, not much to blog about. I've been in hibernation mode. Spending a lot of time knitting and quilting. Some scrapbooking. Movie watching and  tea drinking. Well, you get the idea!

These hyacinths look and smell like spring and that's what I"m thinking about. I've started quite a few perennial flower seeds. They're mostly all germinated and under lights in the basement. I get such a sense of accomplishment when those little plants come up! (As if I had that much to do with it!)

I have been working on a new sweater, for myself this time. I found the pattern in a Debbie McComber book from the library. I splurged on some good yarn from our local yarn store: River City Yarns. It's called Elysian from Cascade Yarns. I love this soft shade of blue and it works up so nice.

Then I saw this free pattern on 
and just had to make it. I had several fabrics in these pink and aqua colors that worked perfect together. I'm having fun doing the quilting using a stencil I bought at Joann's. Now I have to figure out how to quilt the inside of the hearts. Hmmm...

How are all of you getting through the winter? I would love to hear!
