A new beginning...And a spring giveaway

 This morning, as i woke up, made coffee and lit a fire to warm up the house, i peeked outside, hoping today would be sunny. To my delight, i heard the sound of spring birds chirping happily. At last, spring is really on it's way ! We do have a lot of snow left on the ground, but it is melting very quickly and we can see some tiny patches of grass ! What joy ! Winter was long, but we must not complain. For all of us who enjoy going out and play, it was the perfect winter. But now that it is almost over and that spring is all around us, we are all happy to greet the new season.
Before i go on, i would like to thank all of you, my dear and sweet readers, who were so kind to leave wonderful and cheerful comments on my last post. I am really sorry if i have neglected responding, but soon i will take the time to visit and say hello. I am feeling much better everyday. My scar is healing very well and i can go about and do little chores such as cooking and do the laundry. I have spent many hours resting, knitting and doing some crochet. I will show my new socks and ripple blanket a bit later. I love my happy socks and beautiful ripple blanket ♥
 
But for now, what i want to show you is this. A gift, a giveaway for all who wishes to enter. This is giveaway to celebrate a new beginning for me and to welcome the wonderful Spring season. What better way to welcome spring with a pretty colorful and cheerful crochet bunting !  I also made for you this lovely crochet potholder. If you are like me, if you like a little burst of happy colors, this is the perfect gift for you. All you need to do is leave a comment on my blog. If you link this giveaway on your blog or Facebook page, let me know and your chances of winning will double. I will announce the winner in a couple weeks.
Til then, happy spring season ! xoxo ♥

I am sorry to hear how things have not been easy for you and your family but I am glad that you are recovering well. I was wondering where you had been. Now I understand. I love your colourful handmade goodies. I had a knee operation last year and made a blanket too. Its my favourite. Keep well and hopefully see more of you soon. Manon x

Your crochet work is so very sweet, dear Monique! Just like you :)

I'm so glad you are feeling better and enjoying the first signs of spring. Here the spring has been a little sneaky. I was sure it arrived, but now winter is blowing some cold wind on us :) I hope it loses it's strength and will the blooms and fresh leaves come soon :)

I am longing for spring, too. Last week we received 18" of snow. It's all gone by now, but some chilly winds are blowing. I love your crocheted items! It would be a real blessing to be your winner! I hope you're feeling well.
