I agree! Come on Spring! I am tired of coats and hats and gloves and scarves. I have loved Pat's designs for many years, and Amelia's Spring Delight is just the design to bring some Spring into my kitchen.

Mrs. DillyDally 
Summer feels like it is years away in my remote corner of the planet ... so your pictures today were inspiring. Pat Sloan's pattern, like her, is also inspiring! Have a dillydally day!
