A Spring Holiday

A Spring Holiday

Easter usually signals the beginning of spring for many of us.  Flowers begin to bloom and the grass becomes greener.  Baby animals and birds appear, and heavy, winter clothes are replaced with pastel, lightweight attire.  When I was small, Easter also meant flowery hats and a corsage for my mother.

I reviewed my blogs of the past 3 years for textile images to share again and to celebrate spring.

Embroidery on a pre-patterned feedsack.  Note the ink from the sack of navy beans was indelible.

These are my humble creations.

Spring is a renewal, so plant your gardens, take good care of our earth and enjoy the bounties of nature wherever you are.
