Nature’s Magic Quilt – Happy First Day of Spring!

Happy first day of spring, everyone! Yesterday was my last day of school, so now I have two weeks off! I am going to be spending this time sewing a dress for myself so I have something to wear at a wedding next month. 🙂

As you may know, I made a quilt for my grandma back in September as an early Christmas present. This year, I was making a quilt for my other grandma, and two days ago I finally finished it!

Michigan Breaks the Record!

The past few days I have been enjoying the 60-70 degree weather here in the Detroit-area; I even took out my shorts! Yesterday, however, the temperature dropped and it started raining. This morning, to my horror, I awoke to a winter wonderland.  O_O

At first I was bummed out, but then I heard the long awaited news: We finally broke the 133 year old record of 93.6 inches! Our new record is 94. 8 inches. 😀 That is 7 feet and 10.8 inches of snow!

This was the longest, coldest, snowiest, and hardest winter I can remember; in contrast, about three years back we only had two light snow falls and very mild temperatures the entire winter and spring. Michigan weather is so weird!

I really thought that we weren’t going to break the record because of the warm weather. At least the snow isn’t going to stick around; most of it has already melted today, revealing the spring greenery that has sprouted.

I hope your day is warmer than mine!

Luck of the Irish!

The week after St. Patrick’s Day last month, I found this four-leaf clover kit. It came with a pot, growing medium, and seeds. I’m really curious to see how it turns out!

The instructions say to transplant it when the clovers are four inches tall. Now that it’s spring I am excited by anything that’s growing and green, even weeds. 😉 I’ll post updates as it grows!
