Spring Fever

I've got the fever...spring fever! Hope springs eternal...right? In the dead of winter, I'm thinking spring. Crafters, after all, are supposed to "spring" ahead in their thinking. Don't you know...fireworks and fireflies are constant reminders that pumpkins and turkeys are on the may have lights on your tree, but Valentines day is right around the corner.
Live in the moment. Always plan ahead. Life is so conflicting. One minute it's snowflakes the next it's hearts! As anyone who knows me will tell you, I am more of the "in the moment" variety...which explains why I was still making texting gloves on Christmas Eve...Ugh!
However...recently when I was a tad bit under the weather and the TV was my constant companion, I went a little crazy...I had to do something! I know...I'll crochet! I'll use all the yarn up that I have laying around...

It just so happened that it was cotton, and PRESTO...a spring collection was born.

I call this my blue collection...not to sound worked. I was a bit blue after all. When I dropped-off the highly anticipated (LOL) spring preview at the shop (Harmony in Life), the ladies were less than thrilled...they tried to cover it up of course, but sometimes you can just sense these things...Quote: "We really need some more texting gloves and woolen hats." I'll say it again, UGH! Okay, okay. Back to the machine. Back to 100% recycled woolens. Maybe...just maybe, mind you...I was rushing things. Me...too forward thinking? Somehow I don't think I am the only one getting a good laugh out of that. I can hear the chuckling through the computer. Now maybe if you convert that energy and focus REALLY, REALLY hard, we can make this thing happen...don't just sit there...Think Spring!
