Thursday Concatenation

I'm dreaming of Spring. Are you? Really, it's such a shame that I get so tired of Winter. I've relished about as much cold weather as I can tolerate. So...I'm dreaming of Spring. Oh, I told you that already, didn't I? Must be the cabin-fever setting in. ;o)

What's floating through the wispy and gossamer thoughts in my mind? Spring Fashion, Spring Gardening, and Spring Cleaning! Therefore, I bring you a Spring-Themed Thursday Concatenation!

Thursday Concatenation

I love to read blogs and look at so many different websites!
There are wonderful blogs that I have found.
Even though we don't write about the same subjects,
or necessarily share all the same interests, we're connected by our blogs.
I have many interests, and therefore, read blogs on all sorts of topics.

That's CONCATENATION...a series of interconnected or interdependent things or events.
In an effort to share and connect the blogs/sites I enjoy reading, I'm featuring three of them each Thursday.

When I'm looking for fashion inspiration, this is my favorite place to start! While beginning sewers tend to shy away from Vogue patterns, I've never really had any problems with them. Some of the techniques are a bit advanced; however, there are plenty of resources online to help you through the process. My favorites right now are:  V1172 , V1043; and for throw-it-on-and-go style: V8592. What are your favorites? 

Last year about mid-May, I was watching my neighbor's garden as it began sprouting up all these wonderful little plants. By late June, I was coveting the tomatoes and peppers. I want a vegetable garden this year! This No Dig Garden website seems like an easy plan the kids and I can follow.  There's a great section of FAQs, and a monthly E-zine subscription that's free. If you click on the Site Map, you'll find a nicely plotted page of information. I like the idea of not having to break up the soil, as well as the raised-bed plots. Now...if only I can keep the seedlings alive long enough to plant them in the garden beds. :o)

This is a fun website with a wealth of information! At the top of the page, you'll find tabs to click for sub-categories. I recommend using the search engine in the top right corner of the webpage to find articles of interest. There is a very nifty Spring Cleaning checklist with free printables. If you have kids who like to collect everything little tschotskes, click on the Cut Clutter tab and enroll in Declutter 101.

What are your favorite ways to welcome a new season?
Are you ready for Spring? Or Fall if you're Down Under? ;o)

Happy Thursday!
