It Might As Well Be Spring

Hi everyone!

So, am I the only one experiencing nutso weather this *quote* Winter *unquote*? I often complain around this time of year that I'm ready for Spring and it looks as though someone is listening because the weather has been crazy this "Winter". It's been sunny and warm, cold and rainy, hot cold hot cold, I feel like it's a total Katy Perry song this year. The trees in my yard are already starting to bud and like I said on Twitter yesterday, I'm afraid my kids will learn about seasons in History class.

Anyhoo, I decided to Spring it up and crocheted the Crocheted Stash Basket pattern from Purl Bee. I've made this bag a couple of times before and love it.

So I tried to get all creative and mimic grass, sky and clouds with the body of the bag and then crocheted some simple flowers and put them all over it. SPRING!

I also finished Jocelyn's cloche (I love hooking this pattern too!) that she won during my Three Not Four Year Blogoversary giveaway.

So in honor of this fake Winter-sort of Spring, here's "It Might As Well Be Spring" from 1945's "State Fair"

Have a great day!


  1. CUTE!!!! How long does a lil' basket like this take, I wonder? Curious... x

  2. That little tote you made is ADORABLE! I loveeeeeeeee it!! And Jocelyn's is beautiful!!!!

  3. love the tote and the cloche hat! Even the weather in Florida has been "strange" this year! Cool, hot, cool, hot and on and on! There's been no occasion this year for me to wear my winter sweaters...if I take them to the thrift store, next year we'll have snow down here...I'm as confused as the weather!

  4. That is a super-cute little basket and hat :o)


  5. What a cute idea for the bag. I love it. It really does remind me of springtime! We just got another 3 inches of snow, so I guess winter's not done with us here in MN yet. I kind of wish it was. In my book, it might as well be spring *all* the time! :D

  6. Oh sooo cute! Love your crocheted basket...very creative idea with the grass, sky and clouds...and the cloche is precious!

    i am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  12. Oh love that bag!!! I'd totally get the handled dirty in a split second though. I'm not good with white. Seems I'm always smeared with paint or chalks or dirt from the garden. I wash..don't get me wrong but still leave marks on anything light colored. It's a curse. :)

  13. Wow Maggi! Your crocheting is seriously flawless! They are both beautiful, but I really love that bag!
