"Surely as cometh the winter, I know ~
There are spring violets under the snow."
~ R. H. Newell ~
We have crested Old Man Winter’s snowy hill – hooray! And while I know that more snow will surely fall on the blanket that still covers the ground, it is heartening to know that we are that much closer to green grass, gentle breezes, and the nodding heads of flowers in the garden…
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
~ Corinthians 13:13 ~
Early Work Mercantile
My intention for February's Early Work Mercantile update was to have some finished goods to offer, but, alas ~ I did not get anything finished. So, I have instead listed 4 terrific antique samplers for your consideration. Please do take a peek!
Pattern Mart Update
As I mentioned some months ago, I will be discontinuing my selling page on Pattern Mart. Most of you have migrated to purchasing e-patterns right here on my web site and I thank you! But if you are still purchasing on Pattern Mart, please note that come February 15th you will no longer find my patterns there. If you have a Pattern Mart account, be sure to save your Pineberry Lane e-patterns to your computer as Pattern Mart tells me you will no longer have access to them. Pattern Mart is a separate venue from my web site ~ your purchases there are not accessible here.
I leave you this month with the wish that you find simple, unaffected joy in the gifts that are around you each and every day. And a most happy Valentine’s Day from me to thee…
