Is it Summer Yet?

I know, I know.  Christmas just ended, the toys are all over the house (I've decided against cleaning again as it continues to find new ways of covering the floor), and a newly fallen foot of snow covering the ground.

We live in the North East and it is COLD!!!!  With the wind (it's REALLY blowing up a storm out there), the COLD (it is FREEZING!!!!) I dread going out in the snow today.  I know the kids are excited and they are looking forward to it....I'm chilly just thinking about it.

I dream of summer vacation.  The warm sunny skies, the sand in my toes and the kids making castles on the beach.  The boardwalk at night with the kids going on the rides all night and enjoying the sights and sounds of the shore.

I just happened to be on Hoffman Distributing's website this morning and found this new design by Designs by Lisa.  I LOVE IT!  I am putting this one in my rotation for the long winter so I can have it ready for vacation this summer. 

~ Just visited Designs by Lisa website and found this fabulous tote on sale today only.  How fabulous is this going to be to take to the shore with me this summer and pack all my stitching?!  LOVE IT!  You can order it HERE ~ get them while they last!


  1. Colleen, those of us in the Eastern States of Australia are asking the same question - is it summer yet? I have been unable to put away my winter weight doona - I find myself going between my summer quilt and my winter quilt at night, it has been that cold!

  2. Bette ~ It's good to know I am not alone (: I can't wait to get to the beach and have the sunshine warm us up here!
