Welcome to Saturday Sparks 111!

Sharing - a simple word with such a big impact.

Saturday Sparks Link Party 110

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 110!

Todays party may be a bit late, but I have a good excuse....

As much as I love winter, I was more than ready for the arrival of Spring. Much like a guest who overstays their welcome, this past winter lingered on far too long. Luckily for us, the weather here in New England changes on a dime and such was the case today. 

So, my excuse for being late to the party....

I have been basking in our first full day of warmer temperatures and savoring the bright sun filled sky that seemed to have forgotten about us for a spell. It's amazing how much a beautiful day can lift your spirit. 

"No Winter lasts forever; no Spring skips its turn."
~ Hal Borland
   
 Now, lets get this weeks party started.

First up, the Fabulous Features from Saturday Sparks 109.


Farmhouse Style Table Makeover for $20 at Noting Grace. Jen's dining room table wasn't working in her home, so she took the time and effort to make it what she wanted. In this post, she shares her trials, tribulations and gorgeous end results.

Chain Piecing Half Square Triangles at From My Carolina Home. Half Square Triangles aka as HST's are used in many different quilt patterns and there are several ways to create them. In this post, Carole shares a quick chain piecing method that allows you to sew several HST's in one sweep.
