My favourite Spring cleaning job is to clean the outside area and be able to have my coffee outside in the sunshine!

Larissa said...

FAVOURITE spring cleaning job?!!! Lol! Not much of a fan of spring cleaning as our place gets just as filthy as it was before we cleaned as soon as someone drives up or down our driveway, but hmmm ... would probably have to be going through and organising my cupboards! Lol, at least I know they won't get filthy again for a while :)

Jeneta said...

My favourite spring cleaning job is to organise my kitchen cupboards (actually, I quite like organising my linen cupboard too!).

Sooli said...

Cleaning in general leaves me cold but once I make the effort I do like the way the windows look after they've been cleaned, I just hate having to do it! Great giveaway - I love that fabric range!

Julianne said...

Deinately cleaning up the yard of all the pine needles and pinecones...getting it all swept up and clean!

Maria said...

Washing the out side of the house as it means we have PLENTY of rainwater in the tanks....

Catswhiskers said...

Cleaning yes, all year round. Kind of mad about it and of course to tidy up the wardrobes. But Spring time is my favourite time to cook - all different dishes kind of sweets, all kinds of salads lovely and delicious food.
Thanks again for the chance of winning this fabulous giveaway.

My favorite spring cleaning job is washing the curtains

Maria said...

Putting away all the winter gear, heavy coats, boots, mittens, scarves...and breaking out the lighter clothing!

Anonymous said...

Spring cleaning is not high on my list and it sometimes becomes summer cleaning, but if I have to chose a favourite, it would be the sewing room when I can sort through fabrics and rediscover favourite patterns

Fiona said...

oh wow.. thanks FQS - such a happy jelly roll....
Spring cleaning... oh I don't have a favourite job!!! but I think pruning the roses is more fun than others!!! haha...

I don't really have a spring cleaning job at all. Don't like cleaning either but just get into it

Ullhärvan said...

I don't have a fav spring job and happily this year we have just moved so there will be no windows to clean! Thanky ou for the chance at the giveaway

Barbara Woods said...

cleaning windows

Vanessa said...

I love nice clean windows too but I also usually take the curtains down and give them a wash, and re-discover what colour they are meant to be!

Lisa in Port Hope said...

well since I'm following from the Northern Hemisphere we're entering fall..but in the spring I like cleaning up the garden and getting ready for summer.

Richard Healey said...

Cleaning up the yard is what I like most but I hate doing it the most too.

Lynne said...

Washing the curtains - I love the look and the fresh smell. Thanks for the chance to win such a lovely prize.

Terry in California said...

Here in California, we don't have 'spring cleaning. I do love a clean floor. Spring summer. Winter fall give me a floor duster and away I go.

Jan said...

Cleaning out the fire place - no more smoke or soot - warm weather is here and more sunshine is on the way.

Raelene said...

I love cleaning all the cupboards, tiding them and throwing out all the old stuff.
I love opening up organized cupboards.
Thanks for the giveaway.
Hugs

Janet said...

The big spring clean of my car. Getting all the dirt from the muddy roads off the outside and finally being able to vacuum and wash inside. I never got around to it last spring so it might have to be a fall cleaning chore this year.

Sooli said...

I've blogged about the giveaway too! Fingers crossed!

Kristy Westaway said...

My favourite spring cleaning job is swapping out the winter curtains for the new spring . Beautiful windows make all the difference.

Cathy (aka CrafteeCC) said...

I usually 'spring clean' the pantry and freezer twice a year ;-) As much as I hate starting these jobs, I love it when they are finished ;-)

Cathy (aka CrafteeCC) said...

Blogged about it ;-)

I am a follower. My favorite spring cleaning job is cleaning out the drawers. You never know what you might find in the junk drawers. Sometimes I laugh at why I kept something... then put it neatly back in the drawer.

Maxine said...

The best part about spring cleaning is that my niece comes over and does most of it for me. She's such a Sweetie! We live on the same property, but in seperate houses. It's a lot of work for her, but I know she loves me.

Maxine said...

I blogged about your giveaway today

My favorite spring cleaning job is re organizing my stash. I get reacquainted with fabrics I had forgotten about, develop plans for them and get to match fabrics up and go shopping for new fabrics to match. Such spring fun. Have already done it at the end of winter. Has got me motivated after a cold wet winter.

The Amateur Quilter (Mike Pearson) said...

Spring cleaning my sewing room is fun when I get to all the scrap depositaries :) I reflect on all the bits and pieces that I tossed "in the bucket" and remember all the great projects I worked on in the last year :)

Teresa F. said...

Favorite??? I wonder who loves to Spring clean. Nevertheless I love to clean and organize drawers. Sometimes I even find some lost treasures.

Donna Paynter said...

I like to oil my timber furniture, it gleams and smells like heaven.

Karen Falzon said...

My favourite spring job is changing the bed linen from winter to spring mode. The clean, lighter, more colourful quilts cheer the bedrooms up, knowing that summer is around the corner

elliek said...

Spring cleaning!!! Not something I try to do. What a great jelly roll. Such bright colours.

CathyB said...

I like changing the heavy winter bed linens to light, bright Spring ones!

Vicki said...

I don't have a favourite spring cleaning job. All cleaning is a pain. I do like to live a clean house though so I just have to do it. I'd much rather spend my time sewing. Vicki vickilorraine at hotmail dot com

Melody said...

What a fabulous prize. My favourite spring cleaning job is packing away the winter woolies and bringing our my more colourful summer wardrobe.

Screaming-Violet.com said...

My favourite is definitely reorganising all my fabric scraps. Its one of my favourite things about spring and gets the creative juices flowing!!

Pamela S said...

I love to spring clean my quilting room, and to summer, autumn and winter clean when I re-discover a special fabric or pattern.
The cleaning usually gets missed and I get sidetracked with each discovery, but I have fun.

Cheryll said...

What a wonderful giveaway... I hope I get lucky !!!
My favourite SPRING cleaning project is washing the curtains. I love the smell and look of freshly washed lace curtains but especially more so in the SPRING! :)
