Think Spring!

It is still COLD here in south central PA, but the sun is shining and there is the Promise of warmer days to come!

Sophie has been sitting on the windowsill watching the squirrels skittering around in the trees. Earlier there was a pair of doves kissing and grooming each other. Soon the nesting will begin!

My husband and I are eagerly awaiting the day when we can start tilling the garden. This is his first summer of retirement so we are hoping to have a nice neat plot this year. Unlike the weedy ones we've had in the past when we both were working. The garden was my inspiration for the Leaping Rabbits mat that I just finished.

It is done in browns, greens, rusty orange, and a tea-dyed tan on Scottish burlap. Finished size is 11 x 21 inches. It is an easy piece for a beginner.

Here are a few other designs that are in the mood for Spring:

Chicken Yard (c) 2008 23 x 42 inches

Lamb Frolic (c) 2008 24 x 35 inches

Madeline and Mosey (c) 2998 by Linda Keller
23 x 33 inches

These designs (and more!) are available on your chouce of backing: monk's cloth, primative burlap, Scottish burlap, or linen from Grant Street Woolworks in Chambersburg, PA. You may contact Linda Keller by e-mailing to
