I am so happy to say hello to March. We are that much closer to Spring, and even more important for me, that much closer to setting our clocks ahead. Oh how I crave that extra daylight! Makes me very happy. So while we are waiting for sunshine and warm weather, I thought I would share some cheerful things.

Cupcake liners in polka dot and gingham. These put a huge smile on my face when I saw them at Michael's. I was even happier when I used my 40% off coupon to buy them. These are what I call an affordable luxury.

I made this crochet hook holder for Becky using fabric on found on clearance last summer, some pink gingham and this orange polka dot ribbon. Makes me smile!

I am thinking this would also work for double point knitting needles too. I may have to make another one. 

Making things with bright, cheerful colors is such a happy way to spend the last few weeks of winter!


  1. Beautiful, colourful pictures, Debbie! I love the fabric colours you used for the crochet hooks holder - just gorgeous!

  2. I totally agree with you - bright colors are essential now! I love your cheery pictures and am loving the longer days, also! K

  3. Oh Debbie, those cup cake liners are so cute. I can see why they caught your eye and you bought them. Yesterday was so sunny and no rain or snow over in our section of the state. There is so much flooding close by, but we are very fortunate. A friend came home from spending several weeks in Arizona and she said she saw a robin in her yard. Yes,she was thrilled and said, "Spring is right around the corner!" The Hinkley buzzards are back already, another sure sign that Spring isn't too far off :)

  4. Those cupcake papers are adorable. They're definitely going on my Michael's list.
