Thank you so much for sharing all your favorite spring rites with us all!!

It is amazing that we all have very similar favorite activities no matter where we all live!!


So, who is the random winner of the two quilt books?


All names went into  a hat and this is the one I pulled out-


Nancy Sue, send me an email with your address so I can send out your books!!  Winking smile

Thank you all again for participating in the Spring Blog Hop!


So, what are you all doing this fine early spring weekend??  It is raining here in northern Virginia all day today, so it was just as well, that I spent the day reading!! 


This week, I read all three of the Hunger Games books… truly addictive!  Did you read them?  Did you like them?  Are you going to see the movie??



  1. It was so warm here almost 80 this week it has never been this hot this early. Today it went down to 40's and they are worrying about all the flowering trees (magnolia) that have started to bloom may die before completely out. I just love spring but not this way.
    How did you enjoy The Hunger Games series? I am thinking about reading them do you recommend?
    I live up In Ontario Canada so that is why this weather is so unusual we usually have snow this time of the year.
    By the way How are you feeling? Better I hope. Blessings Sandra

  2. Thank you so much :) I'm so excited to dive into these books. And remember, always count your eggs before they hatch, or before you hide them :) Enjoy the Spring!

  3. In addition to being a quilter, I work a B&N, so I'm a bookseller. I was lucky enough to read all the Hunger Games books before they were published. I think they're outstanding. We're going to see the movie next week. The youngsters at work, have already seen it, and loved it.

  4. I'm reading them now! I've been downloading through Audible and LOVE them! I'm almost finished with the second book. Very addictive :) I can't wait to see the movie!

  5. Yogi looks worn out!

    My husband and I went to see the Hunger Games on Friday night. Loved it. Neither of us have read the books but I do think I will.

  6. I have heard the books are really good! I haven't read them yet. I heard the movie sticks pretty close to the books--but I still want to read them before I see the movie.

  7. Congrats to the winner... now, how did I miss this??? I think I missed the blog hop. :-/

    I had a sew day here at my house with a few friends. We played with the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star Ruler. I "NEED" one of these... soon! Sewing tomorrow after church and on Monday as I borrowed one gals ruler.

    Spring has sprung in the desert southwest... mid 80s a bit past 7p.m. and warmer the next few days. I want to go to the beach... or north.

    Polly, could you send some rain "west?"
    ~Winston sends 'woof' regards to Yogi.

  8. I zbsolutely agree with you on those books being addicting!! I read each book in a day! I literally could not put them down! My wonderful husband took me to the movie tonight and it was a GREAT movie but as always the books are 10 times better!

  9. I didn't have the chance but my son is reading the first one and I've never seen him so focussed. It as to be a great book.

  10. Saw the movie yesterday and it was an amazing show from start to finish. Will have to read those books!

  11. OMG!! Going to see the movies today!! AAHHHH!!! Can I tell you I am a S-L-O-W reader but I got through each of those books in only two days!! I even re read the first one with my 10 year old son!! Oh, he sat and cried with me as Rue.. well you know!!! :`) So we are going in two groups today because my MIL, Daughter, Son, Honeyman, and myself have all read and LOVED the books! (but we need someone to hang out with my other Daughter) I CAN'T wait! Is it 2:15 yet??? LOL

  12. I read all three. I had to push myself through the second one and I'm glad I did. It is haunting and you can vizualize this happening to the United States. It is very unnerving. I don't think it should have a PG 13. Kids have enough to worry about.


  13. I saw the Hunger Games on Friday night with my DD2 and SIL. I enjoyed the movie although I think the topic is disturbing. I have not read the books but my daughter and son-in-law have and thought the movie did a good job following the story.

  14. Congrats to the winner! I'm reading Mockingjay now and we'll go see the movie next week! My grandson is the one who told me about the books originally after he read them.

  15. Dear Polly - thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog - It's so much fun to connect with folks that have westies and especially one that is as cute as yours!

    I now one of your followers and since I'm just learning how to quilt - all the fabrics, colors, patterns are overwhelming - basically I want them all but am still learning how to sew that perfect 1/4" seam!

    I also fell in love with the Moda Bakeshop blog - I've copied that link for my girlfriend as we need to know exactly what a jelly roll is ... basically all the 'technical stuff' ... I subscribed to that site as well.

    Hopefully one day we'll meet since we're in the St. Michaels area of the eastern shore - and I'm a new member of the Bayside Quilters Guild here - before I forget - check out Jane Sasseman's blog on My Blog List - her fabrics are pretty wild and exciting.

    Look for my group page on Facebook called WESTIES HEALTH -- FROM EARS TO TAIL - it's a place that deals with health related issues only ... maybe you're already a member?

    All the best,

  16. Congrats to Nancy Sue!

    I love pics of Yogi!!! They make me smile!

  17. I have started on the second book and I can't put it down. I really like them. I see you live in Gods country, lucky you. I am getting ready to move to Delaware from Missouri, this will be I want to live on the beach or near Philly.....I think the beach......A whole new area to find Quilt shops. But will be hard to leave all these midwest shops. Going to Pons and Porters before I leave and I will be many to see before I leave. Ha Ha..... So glad to have found you.....I see Yogi is as spoiled as my Nesbitt......Love these dogs....

  18. Just read the first book and am honestly disturbed that it was intended for 12 year olds. What a horrible thought - children killing children. Can't imagine wanting to see the movie although my daughter did. She felt they left out a couple of critical things from the book. Movies rarely live up to the book. I realize I'm out of step with the majority, but really don't need to feed myself with such disturbing plots.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
