Captain's Notes

Seasons are changing! Here in the North, we're headed into warmer weather, and for some of us in the United States, it's quite surprisingly already here. I've spent the last few days outside playing with my kids and cleaning up the winter debris in my garden beds. The change in routine the weather has provided has been invigorating. Here's to nature providing fresh inspiration for us all :)

If you can find the time, consider pointing some of that inspiration toward our creative challenge for March and April. Think of the moon! We have about a month of waxing and waning ahead of us before we can reveal our entries. Mine is still rattling around in my head, and I'm looking forward to putting it to needle and thread soon.

What's the weather like where you are? Is it strangely warm, strangely cold or perfectly normal? And what are you up to? I hope you all have a happy weekend and a happy equinox. See you next week!


  1. The weather where I am is strangely warm, and I'm loving it! I have been cleaning up my garden and yard as well, and seeing the new buds on my trees and plants is very inspiring! I am really glad that I didn't get much snow this winter, I'm more of a Spring-Summer-Fall lover!

  2. I love seeing plants coming up out of the ground and buds forming on branches, too :) Sadly today was our last day of unseasonably warm weather and we have to go back to boring old normal temps for a while. But at least there is stuff growing!
