I live in the “great” Los Angeles, where the difference between each season is about a half a degree.  But yesterday I saw the very first sign of our “spring” (what happened to winter?), the Magnolias are in bloom!  They are so beautiful and smell so wonderful.  So, that means it’s officially spring time! New pattern time!

I have two new patterns for you! Two patterns of that I am very excited for and very happy to be able to share them with you!  And I have two more coming very soon!
