Spring has Sprung !!! (or at least it's trying !!)

Good afternoon Blogland Neighborhood !! What a GORGEOUS day it is today here in northeast Pa !! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and it's 64 degrees !!! Well, here at MBIAJ Headquarters we just decided it's too nice of a day to be inside, we're heading outside to GOOF OFF !!! SEIZE THE DAY as the saying goes .....cause tomorrow it's probably gonna be cold again !

We don't have the porch furniture out yet, so we'll just sit here on the porch steps ........ahhhhhh.....that warm sun feels GREAT ! We brought out our caffeinated beverage of choice for warmer weather coke (or iced tea is good when we're actually organized enough to make some.... ) and we brought out a stack of Mary Engelbreit Baskets of Flowers Charm Squares to make some yo yo's, AND 2 great books AND the latest Quilts and More magazine (which we finally found at Joann's this past weekend along with those 2 books.)

.....SO many cute projects in this issue !!! (for example, a mushroom by Miss Monica Happy Zombie and a piece of cake by Cindy Taylor Oates.

.....and this book by Glenna Hailey with page after page of fresh and pretty quilts with a nostalgic grandma's kitchen kind of feel....and ric rac .... LOVE that ric rac !!!

......oh !! and this book by Tone Finnanger ..... STINKIN' CUTE gasping for breath while drooling CUTE projects !!!

...and what are the rest of the MBIAJ staff doing while we're drooling over pretty projects and stitching yo yo's?.......

....soaking up the sun (that's Shadow)...

.....lounging on the porch (Daisy)...

....and enjoying a good stretch (that's Sam)

We hope you're all enjoying a sunny spring day AND some goof off time !

Be back soon!

It looks like you had a wonderful day! I'm waiting for the rain to stop and for spring to start. Hopefully this will wash away the last of the snow. I know I'm being to optimistic living in MA and all, but I'm ready this year.
Can't wait to see the yo-yo's. They're always so pretty!
