Is it Spring yet?

Hmmm. I decided it was Spring a few days ago so I planted out my tomato plants and hung a wall hanging outside the front door of my studio. Then today it started to rain and it is cold and dark . . .

Every stitch by hand - hand pieced, hand quilted and even the binding seamed by hand before hemming on the back.


The deck furniture is dripping with rain. I just opened the deck door a crack to poke my iPhone out for the pic.
