I wish I was joking.

I took these pictures this morning.

E looked outside and saw the snow and asked: “Did it used to be Spring?” How to answer? And lest you think Michigan is always like this, a week ago Sunday it was 82 degrees.

Don’t worry, Spring Top sewing is still underway! Just a few more weeks to go! By then the snow should be gone. Should be.

  1. I was about to make a comment about how outside my window looks the same and I glanced out my window and it's MELTED YAY! Ours stuck for like three days but now it's 96% gone. Approximatly.

  2. We had a bit here on Sat. too, but it's all gone again. We have friends in ND who got 5 inches! I think Mother Nature is having a good laugh at our expense. I need spring too!

  3. That's what it's been like in Northern California this year too! We had snow last week! Today it's just raining! Thank goodness.

  4. It snowed here in Wisconsin too! My 2 yo woke me up at 6:30 yelling 'snow'. I thought he was joking!

  5. Ah, the joys of Spring in the Upper Midwest! We had snow (in Minneapolis) on Friday night but it was just a dusting and melted very quickly. When warm weather finally arrives it will be well deserved.

  6. Ontario, Canada feels your pain!! We're looking forward to the warmer temperatures (hopefully) coming this week.

  7. I would e-mail you directly if I had your e-mail address. However,
    I have gone to extreme measures to find your free Buttercup Bag
    sewing pattern. I just can't get it to appear. Could you help me?
    Thank you. djjenkins@animas.net

  8. Same here in MN this morning. Fortunately, it was all gone by noon. Well, except for a few minor drifts left over from winter… but they're gradually melting, too. Now if only we didn't have up to 4" more in the forecast by Wed. a.m.! πŸ™ BUT IT CAN'T LAST LONG, right?! πŸ˜‰

  9. Our lilacs are about to bloom and so I am waiting for the snow to come and destroy them before they get to bloom. It seems to always happen that way!!

  10. We're in west michigan too and both my kids threw tantrums because they thought spring had left. We are so over snow here!

  11. Girlfriends, we have were obviously not consulted about the weather here in the Midwest! I'm sure none of us ordered winter to stay later. πŸ™‚ My kids just give me disbelieving looks when I "claim" its spring!

  12. I grew up in Byron Center, MI and i swear to you I had a birthday party cancelled for snow one year (my birthday is next week) seriously it's crazy weather. I moved to NC and haven't looked back!

  13. Wow! We didn't get snow here… but it is much colder than usual! We had hail both Saturday and Sunday!

    Here's hoping spring comes and stays…

  14. Awww, poor you. Snow, I can't believe it. I' sending some sunshine your way!

    (PS. Has Clementine grown into the top? ;-))

  15. Welcome to never-ending winter, part 36. Seriously, I'm not usually one to complain about this stuff, but this summer could not come soon enough!

  16. Us too, Rae. I went into a serious I've Been Holed Up In Here Too Long funk after snow last weekend (i.e. 2 days ago). Supposed to get more snow tomorrow, too. You know what?
    (a) July will eventually come. It can't stay away forever.
    (b) That snow from 2 days ago is gone now. It doesn't linger and turn cement-esque like the January stuff.

    Hang in there!


  17. That stinks…i feel so bad for you guys..i am hoping for nicer weather here too!

  18. Ick. We woke up here (SE-MI) to icky snow too. I'm so over it… especially since I just finished sewing the girls' easter dresses; sweet little sundresses, perfect for the 80 degrees we had last week, not so perfect to wear in the snow. Ah well, I figure by Sunday it could very well be 80 again! πŸ˜‰ Have a great week! M*

  19. Wow. I thought I had it bad in NH… the snow finally melted from my lawn just a few days ago.
    At least you know it won't last long!

  20. I'm in Wisconsin and it's coming down right now. Saposta get a couple of inches. πŸ™

  21. Snow? Oh no πŸ™ I'ts strangely col here in austin, but that just means not quite as much AC and a little less watering the garden.
