Although it was cold and rainy all weekend, the Bradford pear trees that are blooming outside my living room window are a sure sign that spring is not far away.  I went to the yarn store on Saturday and purchased the most beautiful color combinations and textures to make into lightweight Goddess Shawl Wraps:

This past week I listed a ribbon scarf on etsy that is titled: Early Spring

Early Spring

It was inspired by the following poem by Katherine Mansfield:

Very Early Spring

The fields are snowbound no longer;
There are little blue lakes and flags of tenderest green.
The snow has been caught up into the sky–
So many white clouds–and the blue of the sky is cold.
Now the sun walks in the forest,
He touches the bows and stems with his golden fingers;
They shiver, and wake from slumber.
Over the barren branches he shakes his yellow curls.
Yet is the forest full of the sound of tears….
A wind dances over the fields.
Shrill and clear the sound of her waking laughter,
Yet the little blue lakes tremble
And the flags of tenderest green bend and quiver.

 

So, how is spring influencing your arts and your crafts?
