A snowy birthday

Today is my birthday and I did not ask for snow, I asked for a spring day. Right now we are in the middle of a snow storm and of course the kids are off from school. On the bright side maybe I will get that knit dress done since we are not going anywhere...

I finished the two knit tops from my list and now I am going to make the dress. The fabric is a geometric so I have to play with placing the pattern pieces, wish me luck.

Yesterday to celebrate my birthday we went to Longwood Gardens. The conservatory was bursting with fragrance, color and orchids (there is an orchid show until March 31). We did take a walk through the grounds but there wasn't much to see as my family kept telling me.

These colors just say Spring!
