spring is in the air!

I wouldn't say it was warm today, but I wasn't freezing, and only wore a light jacket.  The air smelled "springy" too.  Mostly because its full of pollen, much to the dismay of Riley who suffers from seasonal allergies.  Poor kid.

Turned out adorable, I think.  The insturctions were a little weird to follow, I had to read and re-read them a few times so I wouldn't make a mistake.  Maybe I am just no good at following patterns.  Who knows?
