Let's Book it project for March

                                                       
It is close to the end of March and I am happy , why because that means we might just get some spring weather .We just came through two days of dreadful weather , a severe spring storm that would match any or even out do most we had this winter . We got dumped on big time but the wind was the real factor , do you know how hard it is to sleep with 100+ hr. winds howling outside your window :-) My son who lives in Cape Breton experienced winds that exceeded 150 km. hr. , I can't even imagine that . Anyway onto better things like a finish for March .
 I am joining in with Sharon for the Let's Book It event and what a wonderful idea this is . For this month I chose a pattern from this  Primitive Quilts magazine which was a spring of 2013 issue.

 I adore these magazines , so many projects I would love to make but this time around I chose this little spring hanging for my table stand which I have shown in previous posts in various stages .
Here is the pattern in the magazine ,
Here is my completed topper , I just love it , a cute little spring quilt to brighten an area of my home . I will be linking up with Sharon today for this months event. Thanks Sharon for inspiring me to get those books and magazines out and actually use them ;-)
 Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your day is extra special.
hugs Sheila

  18. It's a beautiful mini and should inspire Mother Nature to get a wriggle on with it!

  19. Yes, that was quite the wind storm. I think we should send Spring a postcard and invite it to Nova Scotia! Your little topper is just the cutest. Great idea to use our books and magazines.
