What time is it? + free pattern

Springtime ... almost! Made the change to spring forward the clocks last night and the lovely sun is shining brightly even though late afternoon is upon us. As you know I've given up the chance of snow (watch it happen now!) so most surely I'm ready to spring forward to spring ... and all its glorious, promise, renewal, and color.

The tulips now are pushing up
Like small green knuckles through the ground.
The grass is young and doubtful yet,
The robin takes a look around.
And if you listen you can hear,
Spring laughing with a windy sound.
-Eunice Tietjens

This is an older limited release of mine from a few years back - enjoy it as a free pattern today and welcome spring as it draws nearer and nearer.

My husband said it didn't feel like he lost an hour - but twelve - LOL! I set my bedroom clock to the right time before going to bed and I think that helped. Then I did the others when I got up! I have so many clocks...
We got more snow out here in Herndon than you all did. It started around 3 in the morning and didn't quit until almost 5. But it was mostly all melted away by early the next morning..
