It’s hard to “think spring” when it’s blowing snow and the temperature outside is below zero, but the season of renewal is fast approaching. The March/April 2005 issue of PieceWork is a homage to spring and contains a variety of articles and projects featuring flora and fauna motifs. To name a few: Linda Moore’s colorfully stitched Chinese rooster chases away the gloom of winter; Nancy Bush’s knitted bath mitts freshen up home décor; and an elegant, classic floral design stitched on a velveteen table runner, inspired by a Morris and Company design, will make dinner parties the talk of the town. And as always, there are Findings and Trimmings, and Book Marks, and more. PieceWork is sure to bring on spring needleart fever for your customers.
