Happy Spring - well almost - having been married in late March - we only escaped to Bermuda by mere hours before a HUGE winter storm came in. While most people think that sunny days and warm temperatures are not far away, this is one place where I am a realist. Be prepared for at least one, if not two, more major snowstorms. The great thing is that they go away as fast
as they come. So gather your fabric and supplies and be ready for the gift of a day of creating and even if the snowstorms don't come, you will be ready to go onto your next project.
On a happier note - I was just in Washington DC and their forsythia are out in many places so hopefully splashes of color are on their way here! Spring is a great time to get inspiration - the buds, the flowers, the babies…. They all can lift our spirits and give us a spark. Just walking around some of our wonderful sights of the Hudson valley can help us develop our artistic senses. Treat yourself to an hour and find a new place to discover; we have so many free treasures to look at. I think we will try Storm King Art Center (admission fee) sometime this
month. We have driven by it, and I think it is time to stop. My challenge to you is to find a new place that you haven’t been to before and just immerse yourself. You will be happy you did.
