After snowing here earlier in the week, we had gorgeous 70 degree weather yesterday and today is looking just as nice although we might get some thunderstorms later.
We walked across the river for lunch yesterday and spent some time on the deck. Today we’ll walk somewhere else happy that spring has arrived!
I’m also doing a little piecing and knitting. I have to get that hourglass quilt off the design wall and as usual, I’ve completely underestimated how much time it will take. It won’t be completed in April but I’ll work on it a little each and every day until its done. I have 6 more yards of fabric to quilt for my Aunt and do plan to have that done by the end of the month.
I love traveling but it’s good to be home with Keith and Chesty!
It’s been a boring week around here from a quilting standpoint, I’ve got 9 yards of my aunt’s fabric quilted, some knitting done, unpacking, laundry, and repacking done, and worked several days at the library. Luckily Colleen sent me an email with this photo to share.
She wrote that she was working from scraps and
was challenged by some of the fabrics. I hate to make ugly quilts, especially if they are for charity. Thank you for all your great patterns. (This was just one of 6 quilts I took to the shelter. I have 4 more to quilt, and I don’t have a long arm.)
I love Colleen’s quilt and her scraps and her quilt look beautiful! Click here to see the instructions for my Solid Stars and Strings.
