Spring's Just Around the Corner just so happens that the corner it's around is 18 city blocks away and there are windrows of snow 8 feet high and icy streets in the way...
But I's just around the corner!

I admit, it's a little hard to think Spring when the mercury falls below - 32 degrees {Celsius} which converts to...FREAKING COLD...that's what!
- 32 degrees {Celsius} not cold enough for you?
Okay then, let's throw in a windchill of -46 degrees.
actual temperatures from February 25th
It's safe to say that I've had ENOUGH!!
But you know me, always a I believe Spring will arrive.
Let's will it out...shall we?!
Can you spot Spring in this picture?

Here's a little wardrobe update to get you started.

Begin with fabric circles of any two coordinating colours.
Throw in a felt-circle for a later step.

Fire up the glue-gun and start foldin' and gluin'...

 You'll need at least 6 folded circles for the larger petals and 5 for the smaller ones.
Glue the larger petals onto the felt circle, overlap for a fuller look.
After folding and gluing the smaller circles, glue them on top of the larger petals...until it looks like this...
I covered a button for the centre.
Glue the flower to the headband and then add a second felt circle over the headband, for extra support.

And here's a little monkey jumpin' on her bed...just for fun:)
Whenever Spring comes...we'll be ready!

  6. There's nothing like yellow to bring a touch of spring. Your little girl looks so cute in her adorable headband!
    Most of the snow is gone here on Long Island, but we had piles over 6 feet high (from the plows) and I don't think I saw a blade of grass from the day after Christmas to about two weeks ago. The good news is that I'm hearing birds singing again, a sure sign of Spring!
