I know that some of you are still experiencing Winter and getting snow. Here in North Texas, we are already experiencing Spring weather. They are forecasting 80's for later in the week.
My allergies are not happy when everything starts blooming, but there is one thing I love about spring- Texas Wildflowers.
I especially love our state flower- the Bluebonnet.
They usually start to bloom in mid to late March and are gone by mid May. Brides love to have their picture taken in fields of them, and if you drive down some of the major freeways you can see families pulled over to the side of the road taking pictures of their children in the fields of them too. I've never had my picture taken in them, but I actually hope to resolve that this spring. I want to take a road trip to find just the right spot.
Another one of my favorite things are fabrics by MODA. Leave it to them to come out with this gorgeous selection of fabrics- "Hill Country Spring".
For those of you that don't know, the "Hill Country" is central Texas, pretty much the area east of Austin and north of San Antonio. While North Texas is basically flat, and West Texas is basically desert, this area is hilly, lush, and green. There are many beautiful lakes and rivers.
To celebrate my 100th post I am giving away 2 charm packs of "Hill Country Spring"
There are 22 charms in each pack. Just enough to make yourself a nice table topper or a runner and some placemats. You will also recieve a set of my Criss-Cross Coasters made with Bluebonnet fabric from another Moda line a few years ago.To win this giveaway, leave a comment in this post before midnight, Thursday, 2/26. Tell me your favorite thing about Spring where you live. I will put your name in a pot and post the winner Friday morning. If you post a link in your blog about my giveaway and let me know I'll put your name in the pot twice.
