Signs of Spring!

Spring is coming, spring is coming
How do you think I know?
Because I saw a robin
That's what tells me so!

Here in Central Indiana, we see robins all winter long. They've been feasting on the fruit from our pear trees that line our street. Regardless, I still think of robins as a sure sign of spring.

And if my dog is a great prognosticator like that groundhog in Pennsylvania, she's been predicting an early spring by shedding her winter coat at an alarming rate. Good thing I have a Dyson Animal vacuum!

Here's another sign of spring. I was able to take a photo outside! In the sunshine! Yippee!

 I had stitched this little robin last month, and decided to finally finish it off today. I added the gingham ribbon, buttons and tag, then tucked it into a "pocket" at the base of this card.

{Today's Brew: stitching project supplies and pattern from Cross Stitcher Magazine (Future Publishing), card stock from PTI, picket fence die and buttons from PTI, tag die and sentiment from WPlus9 design, gingham ribbon, papers from Simple Stories (Summer Fresh collection)}

Thanks for visiting the cafe today! Think spring, my friends!


  1. Such a sweet little robin...he's singing his song of Spring! Yippee!

  2. I second that- Emmett is really shedding, too. I was just annoyed by it- now I will look at it as spring is coming!
